Woodex Aqua solid is a semi matt water-borne, acrylate/alkyd based opaque wood stain for outdoor use.
It provides the wood with a solid colour and efficient protection against the elements. It forms a thinner film than paint, leaving the wood’s grain and structure more visible. Water-borne opaque stains are generally used for painting finely-sawn wall panelling
Ideal for the renewed treatment of old, faded wood stain surfaces, and also when a uniform colour is desired on old and new wood stain surfaces.
Suitable also for use on new and press-impregnated wood. Also ideal for walls, covering boards, fences, window frames, etc.
For log surfaces we recommend WOODEX transparent wood stains.
NEW WOODEN SURFACE: Treat the wooden surface which is subjected to weather strain as soon as possible. At least the pre-treatments, impregnation and priming would be best done in the summer of construction. Remove from the surface all loose matter, dirt and dust. Wash dirty and/or mildewed surfaces with RENSA FACADE facade cleaner.
Brush the detergent into the surface and leave it to take effect as long as possible. However, the surface must not get to dry. After this rinse the surface thoroughly with clean water and allow to dry completely.
Treat the wooden surface with clear WOODEX AQUA BASE priming oil. Allow to dry for one day. Apply by spray or brush. Treat end grain especially carefully. The surface treated with priming oil is then primed with WOODEX AQUA SOLID diluted abt. 10 % by volume. Allow to dry for abt. 12 h. Apply by brush. When spray painting, finish the wet painted surface with a brush. In order to achieve the most long-lasting treatment also NORDICA PRIMER can be used for priming. Drying time is 1–3 day depending on the temperature and humidity of the air. Treat end grain especially carefully.
Previously painted or old wood surfaces: Replace or repair wooden parts that are in poor condition. Remove loose matter, loose or poorly adherent paint or priming oil as well as greyed or fluffy layers of wood by e.g. scraping, wire brushing or using an infra-red heater. Avoid unnecessary damaging of the wooden surface. The adhesion of an old, thick paint layer to the substrate may have been weakened so much that the paint should be removed even if it seems intact. Wash surfaces with RENSA FACADE facade cleaner. Brush the detergent into the surface and leave it to take effect as long as possible. However, the surface must not get to dry. After this rinse the surface thoroughly with clean water and allow to dry completely. Avoid unnecessary wetting of the wooden structures during the washing. Bare wooden surface of the damaged parts are treated with WOODEX AQUA BASE. Allow to dry for 1 day. After that prime the damaged parts with WOODEX AQUA SOLID diluted abt. 10 % by volume. Allow to dry for abt. 12 h
Before use stir the paint thoroughly.The paint is thinned with water 5 - 15 % by volume when needed. Dilution somewhat slows down the drying of the paint and hence eases the application in warm weather. Dilution may, however, impair the coverage of the paint. In order to avoid colour differences when painting large uniform surfaces, paint of the same tinting batch should be used for the whole surface and/or mix sufficient amount of paint into the same vessel. Apply WOODEX AQUA SOLID by brush. When spray painting, finish the wet painted surface with a brush. Recommended nozzle size for airless spray is 0.017–0.021”.
Primed or previously painted surfaces are top coated 1–2 times depending on the coarseness of the surface, the colour of the substrate and/or the the coverage of the colour. Avoid overly thick paint films on log surfaces.
The surface to be painted must be dry. The moisture of the wood must be below 20 % of the dry weight of the wood. During the application and drying period the temperature of the ambient air, the surface and the paint shall be above +5 °C and the relative air humidity below 80 %. Avoid application in direct sunlight. If the temperature of the surface to be painted exceeds +40 °C, the application properties and the adhesion of the paint may deteriorate.
Must be stored tightly closed and kept cool. MUST NOT FREEZE.
