Surface preparation before painting
Previously untreated surfaces. Clean from dust, dirt, resin or sawdust. Prime the surface to be painted with the Biostop or Biostop Aqua V. Clean knot locations from resin streaks. Clean metal parts from rust and pre-treat them with anticorrosive primer. Prime smooth planed surfaces with Veranda Primer Aqua diluted with water up to 25%.
Previously painted surfaces. Remove peeling paint, dust, dirt. Clean dirty surface with agent EasyClean. Replace old dead wood. Clean metal parts from rust and pre-treat them with anticorrosive primer. Pre-treat the surfaces cleaned to bare wood with the Biostop or Biostop Aqua V prime with diluted Veranda Primer Aqua. Finish outdoor surfaces so that the surface can dry before the evening dew falls.
We do not recommend performing the application in direct sunlight or at high temperatures.
Please pay attention to the constructional methods of protecting wooden surfaces: good waterproofing of walls and the roof, water drainage and ventilation. The result of using wood protection products depends on the adequate use of constructional methods of the protection of wooden surfaces.
Stir the paint thoroughly before application. Mixing a large quantity of the product in one container is recommended for ensuring that the colour of large surfaces is even. The surface to be painted must be dry and clean (moisture content must not exceed 20%); air temperature must be above +5 °C, and relative humidity must not exceed 80%. The paint can be diluted with water in the amount of up to 10% of its volume for the application of the first coat. Apply 1–2 coats of the paint. Apply evenly from edge to edge along the grain. Prime and paint board edges with special care. Do not apply paint to surfaces heated by sun light, at high temperatures of the ambient air (above 30 °С) and in a rainy and foggy weather without using special weatherproof coating.
Care for the painted surface
The coating reaches its peak wash resistance in about 4 weeks; in the meantime, treat the surface with care until its hardness and wash resistance have reached their peak levels.
Use water under pressure for cleaning. We recommend using Biotol E and Biotol Spray to remove mould.
Brush, roller+brush, airless spray gun.
Clean the tools with water after completing work.
