Surface preparation before varnishing

The surface must be clean and dry. Wood moisture content must not exceed 12%.
Previously untreated surfaces. Clean the surface from dirt, dust or grease. Before application, spray wooden surfaces with water, let them dry and sand the wood fibers which have risen.
Previously varnished surfaces. Sand thoroughly until the surface is matte. Fully remove peeling old coating. Use the OPS Pro product for the removal of old varnish coatings if necessary. Then prepare he surface in the same way as untreated surfaces.


Stir the varnish thoroughly before application and keep stirring it regularly during the working process to spread tinting pastes and the matt agent evenly.
If necessary, the varnish can be diluted with water in the amount of 20% of its volume for the first coat. Application in the conditions of exposure to direct sunlight, draughts and high temperature can cause surface defects.
We recommend applying 2–3 coats of varnish along the grain without stopping from one edge of the surface to the other at the temperature between +10°C and +27°C and at relative humidity not over 80%.
Sand the surface slightly and remove dust before applying another coat.
The colour of the surface coated with tinted varnish depends on the species and hue of the wood and the number of varnish coats. Before applying tinted varnish, we recommend making a swatch on a separate board to check the tint.

Care for the varnished surface

The coating reaches its peak hardness in about 3 weeks; in the meantime, treat the surface with care until its hardness and wash resistance have reached their peak levels.
If necessary, the surface can be lightly wiped with a soft sponge or cloth approximately 48 hours after varnish application.
We recommend using water and neutral or medium alkaline detergents (pH below 9) for cleaning.
Do not use organic solvents, abrasive cleansers and hard scrubbing brushes or sponges.
The coating is resistant to solutions of detergents in water, to oils and greases, and exposure to weak solvents (gasoline, white spirit). Make sure to remove stains from coffee, tea, fruit juices and other colouring liquids immediately!

Tool cleaning

Drying time

Dust-free drying time: 0.5 hour; at the temperature of +20 °C and the relative humidity of 65%, the surface is ready for the application of another coat in 2…3 hours. If the temperature is lower and the humidity is higher, the drying takes longer accordingly. The varnish coating reaches its peak hardness and durability in about three weeks. In the meantime, avoid loading the surface, vigorous cleaning or contact of the surface with hot or sticky objects. At lower
temperature and higher humidity drying will take longer.

Safety precautions

The product is not classified as dangerous according to CLP Regulation (EC) nº 1272/2008.  Contains 1,2-benzisothiazol-3(2H)-one, 2-methylisothiazol-3(2H)-one, reaction mass of 5-chloro-2-methyl-2H-isothiazol-3-one and 2-methyl-2H-isothiazol-3-one.  May produce an allergic reaction.  If medical advice is needed, have product container or label at hand. Keep out of reach of children. Do not eat or drink during the process, washing hands afterwards with suitable cleaning products.
