APPLICATION DETAILS
Application conditions The surface to be treated has to be clean and dry. The moisture content of wood has to be below 20%. During application and drying temperature of the air, substrate and paint must be over +15°C and relative humidity of the air below 80%. Good ventilation is required to ensure optimal result. Product can be dried with or without oven.
Preparation Remove dust, loose particles and other impurities from the surface.
Painting For air-assisted airless spraying, the product is thinned approximately 0–5% to the viscosity 40–60s (DIN4). Recommended nozzle tip is 0.009"–0.013" and pressure 40–120 bar. Atomising air pressure should be about 1–3 bar. Spray angle shall be chosen according to the shape of the object.

For conventional spraying, the product is thinned approximately 0–5% to the viscosity 40–60s (DIN4). Recommended nozzle tip is 1.4–1.8 mm and pressure 2–3 bar.

For roller coating, the product is not thinned.
Overcoating Akviwax.
Cleaning of tools Water.
EU VOC 2004/42/EC-limit value The Volatile Organic Compounds amount is 54 g/litre of wax.
Maximum VOC content in ready to use wax (thinned 5% by volume) is 54g/litre.
VOC 2004/42/EC (cat A/d) 130g/l (2010).
