Capadur DecorLasur

Water-dilutable, polyurethane-based wood stain/glazing.

  • LV Texte
  • Field of Application

    Suitable for colourful design and protection of dimensionally stable wooden structural elements, e.g. windows and doors, wood with limited dimensional stability such as shutters, gates, panelling with tongue and groove, framework, etc., and for wooden parts of unstable shape, e.g. fences, shingles, balustrades, form boards, pergolas, etc. For exterior and interior use.
    Please follow BFS Data Sheet No. 18 section 2.2.3 et seq. before coating plate-type wood-based materials, e.g. boards of solid wood or veneer plywood.

    Caparol-Fungizid can be added to protect surfaces temporarily against fungal and algal attack, but only for exterior use. Caparol-Fungizid counteracts the infestation as a film protective agent.
    Nevertheless, on highly endangered wood-based materials like plywood (e.g. maritime pine boards) or OSB (Oriented Strand Board), infestation may reappear before the end of regular warranty periods.
    Do not apply Capadur DecorLasur in the interiors and on toys, when combined with Caparol-Fungizid.

    Some colours are only limited suitable for exterior use. Detailed information available at the ColorExpress stations. Use transparent material on exterior substrates only as a priming coat under coloured glaze/scumble or as finishing coat on intensively toned (dark) glaze coats, otherwise a sufficient protection of wood from UV rays cannot be guaranteed. Do not use transparent product on exterior surfaces, when exposed to UV rays and weathering.

    Gloss Level

    Satin-finished (silky lustre/semi-gloss).
    The gloss level may vary depending on the wood surface.

    Suitable Substrates

    Dimensionally stable or limited stable wood and wooden parts of unstable shape.
    The substrate must be clean, sound/stable, and free from all substances that may prevent good adhesion. The wood moisture content (WMC) must not exceed 13 % for dimensionally stable wood and max. 15 % for other types.
    Follow the principles of constructional wood preservation. They are a premise for long-lasting wood preservation with coating materials. In adverse conditions noticeable yellowing may occur with the use of white shades, caused by wood components that leave marks.

    Substrate Preparation

    New Wood:
    Sand smooth/even surfaces in fibre direction, clean thoroughly and remove extruding wood extractives, e.g. wood resin/rosin and resin galls. Apply one priming coat of Capacryl-Holzschutz-Grund on exterior surfaces.
    Existing Wood:
    Sand (abrade/grind off) greyed, weathered surfaces to the stable, solid substrate and clean the surface. Apply one priming coat of Capacryl-Holzschutz-Grund on exterior surfaces.
    Coated Wood:
    Remove unsound existing coatings completely to the stable wood and clean thoroughly. Apply one priming coat of Capacryl-Holzschutz-Grund on exterior surfaces.
    Sand the surface of adherent existing coatings and clean thoroughly. Then check for compatibility with Capadur DecorLasur.
    Exterior Wood Exposed to Fungal and Algal Attack (Preventive Protection):
    Prepare substrates as previously described. Add 6 % by volume of Caparol-Fungizid to Capadur DecorLasur and stir thoroughly. Follow Technical Information of Caparol-Fungizid.

    Method of Application

    Stir Capadur DecorLasur before use. Apply with brush or spraying equipment. Dilute with tap (potable) water for spray application. Do not apply mixtures of Capadur DecorLasur and Caparol-Fungizid with spraying units.
