08 Wood Tex Patina

08 Wood Tex Patina

Flügger Wood Tex is a series of aqueous products for exterior wood. They give the wood a highly weather-resistant surface with maximum durability, gloss and colour stability. The products are easy to apply and quick-drying.

Product Description

Colourless treatment which reacts with the wood to give a yellow-brown/pink tone, which after 6-8 weeks changes to a silver-grey transparent surface where the vein structure of the wood is visible. Creates a physical barrier that inhibits mould and mildew growth on the surface and imparts effective flame-retardant properties. Used as a pre-treatment prior to final treatment with Wood Tex Sealer.
  • Environmentally friendly silicon technology
  • Flame retardant
  • Maximum durability

Usage

Building structures such as terraces, balcony floors, eaves, gable cladding, facades, picket fences and garden furniture.
The surface must be new or totally stripped.
Best effect is achieved on pressure-impregnated wood.

Substrate

Must be absorbent, clean, dry, solid and suitable for paint treatment.
Insufficiently protected cross-cut wood, water traps or risk of water accumulation must not occur.
The moisture level in the wood prior to paint treatment max. 20%.
New pressure-impregnated wood must be allowed to dry for 4-6 months prior to treatment.

Treatment

Wood stain, paint and decayed wood fibres must be completely removed by cleaning and sanding.
Remove dirt, filth, grease and chalking material with Terrace Cleaner.
Algae, mould and mildew must be removed by cleaning with Facade Anti-green.
Final treatment with Flügger 08 Wood Tex Sealer: efter 4-6 hours.

Application

Brush or roller.
Apply two times with 1 hour drying time between applications and work well into the wood.
Apply wet-on-wet and carefully remove any excess liquid.
The transition to gray becomes uneven if sun and rain cannot hit. The wood protection can be used in these areas, but the transition to gray takes longer.
Condensation must not form.
Avoid working in direct sunlight.
The surface must not be exposed to frost or rain for at least 24 hours after completing treatment.

Silver-grey and transparent. Expected durability 10 years.
The durability of the surface depends on the wood quality, structure, application and exposure. The expected durability can therefore be shorter or longer than stated.

Be Aware

Protect freshly painted surface from adverse weather conditions.
Take appropriate measures against the effects of moisture and rainfall on freshly painted surfaces.
The surface achieves maximum robustness when fully cured.
