Usage

On edging, windows and doors.
When used to treat windows and doors, can also be used on the inner side. 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 cleaning 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.
Substrate which has stood untreated for longer than 4 weeks must be cleaned and loose wood fibres removed.
Best durability is achieved with two or more coatings.

Application

Brush, roller or spray.
If applying using a roller or spray, brush over afterwards.
Choose appropriate tools for the desired finish.
Apply wet-on-wet, and finish by brushing in the same direction.
Always use the same batch no. for continuous/unbroken surfaces.
Cold or heat can affect the material’s viscosity
Material temperature when spraying must be min. 15°C.
Condensation must not form.
Avoid working in direct sunlight.
Cold weather and high humidity increase the drying time, complete curing and re-treatment interval.
High temperature and low humidity reduce the drying time and complete curing.
Contact with other surfaces before the paint is cured can cause sticking.
Contact against softened PVC sealing strip causes sticking.
Always apply test treatments to check and accept the adhesion and results.

Semi-gloss and opaque. Expected durability: 8 years.
The durability of the surface depends on the wood quality, structure, layer thickness, application and exposure. The expected durability can therefore be shorter or longer than stated.
Chalking from strong shades due to surplus pigment may occur.
Does not block strike-through from knots or water-soluble colourants.
