Color scheme: AQUA CLOUsil HOLZ LASUR water varnish for exterior and interior use is available in 13 colors (see Color Scheme):
12 Dark walnut
All colour shades can be mixed together for individual customized shades.
Preparation: The wood must be dry and free from dirt, oil and grease.
Wood types that are highly resinous e.g. pitch pine, should be treated with CLOU Deresinifier No. 499. Sand the surface with 180 grit and remove all dust.
Use/Application: (Surface temperature > 15 °C, residual wood moisture 8–12 %)
Thoroughly shake or stir contents before use. For brush coating use a metal-free, soft, flat brush (especially suitable are perlon brushes for water-based
varnishes). Apply two coats of AQUA CLOUsil along the wood grain evenly and without pressure and smoothly spread out any surplus. Between the two coats sand lightly with 240 grit. Parts that are strongly exposed to outdoor weathering (e.g. windows) need a third coat preferably darkly pigmented as this gives better UV protection. Endgrain and very absorbent surfaces should be treated with particular care.
Special Instructions: The colour shade “natural” should only be used on objects that are not exposed to strong weathering, as this shade is relatively low pigmented and therefore does not provide as much protection against UV rays. Not suitable for treating oak outdoors – here a thick film coating glaze should be used. The colour shade “white” should only be used on naturally light coloured wood types (spruce, maple), that is, types not containing any colouring elements. Even with ash, yellow discolouration can be caused by wood content. To protect from blueness, mildew and rotting, pre-treat with CLOU AQUA Wood Protection Primer.
AQUA CLOUsil HOLZ LASUR water varnish for exterior and interior use is available in 0.75L and 2.5L packages.
