Product Description

Satin opaque surface, which obscures the wood structure and vein structure. Inhibits mould growth and mildew growth on the surface.
  • Easy to apply
  • Good hiding power
  • Maximum protection against moisture and water

Usage

Building structures such as eaves, gable cladding and facades. For light and dark types of wood, including pressure or vacuum-impregnated wood. The substrate must be primed or previously treated.

Substrate

Must be clean, dry, solid and suitable for paint treatment.
Insufficiently protected cross-cut wood, water traps or the risk of water accumulation must not occur.
The moisture level in the wood prior to paint treatment max.:
Windows and doors: 12% ± 3; Overhangs, fences and cladding: 18%.

Treatment

Loose wood stain, paint and decayed wood fibres must be removed by stripping and sanding.
Remove dirt, filth, grease and chalking material with Facade Clean.
Algae, mould and mildew must be removed by cleaning with Facade Anti-green.
Round off sharp edges for best possible hiding power
All bare woodwork must be treated before or immediately after mounting
Glossy, previously painted surfaces must be sanded matt.
New or bare cleaned wood must be primed with Flügger 01 Wood Tex Classic Priming Oil.
Substrate which has stood untreated for longer than 4 weeks must be cleaned and loose wood fibres removed.
Best durability achieved with two or more coatings.

Application

Brush or roller.
If applying using a roller, brush over afterwards.
Choose appropriate tools for the desired finish.
Apply wet-on-wet, and finish by brushing in the same direction.
Repaint at max. 14-day intervals to achieve the best possible adhesion between coats
Always use the same batch no. for continuous/unbroken surfaces.
Cold or heat can affect the material’s viscosity
Condensation must not form.
Avoid working in rain or direct sunlight.
Cold weather and high atmospheric humidity increase the drying time, complete curing and re-treatment interval.
High temperature and low atmospheric humidity reduce the drying time and complete curing.
Always apply test treatments to check and accept the adhesion and results.

Semi-matt and opaque. Expected durability: 10 years.
The durability of the surface depends on the wood quality, structure, layer thickness, how it is applied and exposure. The expected durability can therefore be shorter or longer than stated.
Chalking from strong colours due to surplus pigment may occur.
Does not block strike-through from knots.

Be Aware

Protect freshly painted surface from adverse weather conditions.
Take appropriate measures against the effects of moisture and rainfall on freshly painted surfaces.
The surface achieves maximum robustness when fully cured.
