Description

  • For use on exterior wood

  • Dimensionally stable wood building elements: e.g. windows and doors (including their interior surfaces)
  • Wood building elements with no dimensional stability: e.g. fences, framework, carports, planking
  • Wood building elements with limited dimensional stability, e.g. folding shutters, matchboarding, summerhouses
  • Biocide-free finishing coat for impregnated wood, e.g. garden furniture
  • Clear UV+ can also be used as a sacrificial layer over pigmented variants to prevent the wood from darkening
  • First coat: 100 ml/m² Second coat: 60 ml/m²

 

Application Method

 

Requirements for the substrate

  • Limited dimensionally stable wooden construction elements and dimensionally unstable timber components: the maximum permissible timber moisture content is 18%.

Preparations

 

  • Thoroughly remove any dirt, grease and non-adhering old coatings.
  • Sand grey and weathered wood surfaces down to sound, bright wood.
  • Remove loose and torn knots as well as resin that bleeds and clean with a suitable product (e.g. V 101 thinner, thinner & brush cleaner).
  • For exterior wood that requires protection against soft rot and blue stain, pre-treat with Wood Protection Primer*, Wood Protection Cream* or HK Stain* (not required for interior wood).
  • When painting exterior wood with the colour Clear UV+, the wood must first be pre-treated with Wood Protection Cream Clear.
  • Observe BFS Code of Practice No. 18 "Coatings on Wood and Wooden Working Materials in Outdoor Areas".
  • Thoroughly sand any old coatings that are still intact.

 

Conditions of use

  • The temperature of the material, the environment and the substrate should be between +5 ° C and +25 ° C

 

Stir well.

  • Apply by brush.
  • Apply in the direction of the grain.
  • Carry out light intermediate sanding on particularly elegant surfaces prior to applying a finishing coat.
  • Apply a second coat once the first has dried.
  • If required, Clear UV+ can be used as a third coat to permanently fix the desired colour (sacrificial layer that is renewed when renovating).
  • This procedure can also be carried out on surfaces that have been pre-treated with HK Stain or Wood Protection Cream.
  • This procedure is not advisable on substrates that have been treated with white products (darkening, yellow tint from Clear UV+).
  • End grain areas should be painted over with several coats of the material in the corresponding colour to protect against water absorption.
  • Windows and exterior doors require 3 coats.
  • All colours can be mixed with one another.
  • Seal opened containers well and use contents as soon as possible.

 

Performance Tips

  • By making trial surfaces, the compatibility of the material with the substrate and adhesion must be checked.
  • When applying further layers of other paint materials, it is recommended to check the adhesion.
  • In the case of wood species with a high content of water-soluble tannins, such as oak, red cedar, afcelia, redwood etc., precipitation may cause their washing away. This may result in discoloration on light-colored masonry or plaster.
  • The lower surfaces of the front cuts of the wood should be trimmed to obtain a drip.

 

  • Check colour and compatibility with the substrate by applying a trial coat.
  • Make sure that the area is well ventilated during processing and drying.
  • Each layer of medium-build stain results in a more intense colour and a glossier finish.
  • Compatible with plastics and bituminous materials once dry.
  • Areas that are being coated or dried should be protected against rain, wind, sunlight and condensation.
  • Mechanical damages, especially to clear coatings, must be immediatly repaired with "clear UV+" to prevent discolouring, caused e.g. by blue stain.
  • Risk of self-ignition (DGUV information brochure 209-046).
  • The product should not be applied at the same work stand as NC-based varnishes or stains. Collect any textiles soiled with the product (e.g. cleaning rags, work clothing) in fire-resistant waste containers and dispose of properly.

Drying

  • Approximately 12 hours at 20 ° C and 65% relative air humidity.
  • Low temperatures, poor ventilation and high air humidity extend the drying process.
  • Depending on the type of wood (e.g. larch), the drying time may take longer.

Dilution

  • The material is delivered ready for use

​Tools/cleaning

  • Natural bristle brush
  • Clean tools immediately after use with "Brush cleaner, thinner" (Art. 1345)
  • Dispose of dirty liquid in accordance with the regulations.

Storage/ Shelf Life

  • In a carefully closed package, in a dry and cool place out of the reach of children, protected against direct sunlight and frost, in well-ventilated rooms. Smoking is not allowed in these rooms.
