Capacryl TriMaXX Venti

The block resistant allround lacquer
LV Texte

Field of Application

Water-thinnable one-pot varnish for dimensionally stable and limited dimensionally stable wooden components such as windows and doors with old sanded alkyd resin and dispersion varnishes. Varnish for primed metal and rigid PVC surfaces for exterior and interior use. Capacryl TriMaXX Venti is a building enamel for non-traffic, vertically applied building material surfaces in building construction. The application on sports equipment, toys, furniture, vehicles, ships/boats, machines, plants etc. is not intended. Suitability must be checked on a case-by-case basis. Capadur Wetterschutzfarbe NQG should be used for roof soffits and non dimensionally stable wood components, e.g. on facades. 

Material Properties

  • High hiding power on surfaces and component edges
  • Very good stability and high paint safety
  • Block resistant
  • Moisture ventilating
  • Fast drying
  • Direct adhesion to sanded alkyd resin paints

Material Base / Vehicle

Suitable Substrates

Dimensionally stable and limited dimensionally stable wooden components as well as primed metal and rigid PVC surfaces in interior and exterior building construction. The substrates must be clean, adherant, dry and free from separating substances. The wood moisture content must not exceed 13 % for dimensionally stable wooden components and 15 % for wooden components with limited dimensional stability.

Substrate Preparation

Wooden components:
Observe BFS Leaflet No. 18 "Coatings on wood and wood building materials". Sand wood surfaces in the direction of the grain, clean thoroughly and remove escaping wood substances such as
e.g. resins and resin galls. Break off sharp edges. If necessary, apply a preventive impregnation against blue stain fungus attack (observe permissible areas of application for wood preservatives). On white and light-colored paintwork, apply a barrier primer against discoloring wood ingredients, if necessary.

Iron, steel:
Prepare iron and steel to standard cleanliness level SA 2 1⁄2 (blasting) or ST 3 (machine) according to DIN EN ISO 12944-4. Apply suitable corrosion protection primer.

Observe BFS Leaflet No. 6 "Coatings made of aluminum components". Clean with Universal Thinner or Gescha Multi-Star with plastic sanding pad. Prime e.g. with Capacryl Haftprimer (do not use on anodized aluminum).

Hard PVC:

Observe BFS Leaflet No. 22 "Coatings on plastic in building construction". Clean rigid PVC surfaces with Gescha Multi-Star and plastic sanding pad. Sand with abrasive <180 grit. Vacuum off sanding dust. Apply primer with Capacryl Haftprimer.

Old coatings:
Sand and clean adherend alkyd resin paints and/or acrylic dispersion paints.

Method of Application

Capacryl TriMaXX Venti can be applied with long bristle acrylic paint brushes especially for waterborne coatings. Short-pile coating rollers are suitable for roller application, followed by fine-pore foam coating rollers for the optimum surface finish. Airless is the ideal spraying method. Stir well before use.

1) In the case of white and light-colored coatings, it may be necessary to block off wood ingredients.
2) On dimensionally stable wooden components (windows), an additional intermediate coat must be applied in accordance with BFS-Merkbalt No. 18.
3) This refers to alkyd resin coatings and acrylic dispersion architectural coatings. An adhesion test must be carried out on 2 Component coatings, powder coatings, coil coatings or other factory coatings and, if necessary, an EP adhesion primer must be used.
4) Damaged areas in old coatings must be pretreated according to the respective substrate.
