Capadur SilverStyle

The metallic effect glaze
  • LV Texte

    Field of Application

    Effect glaze (wood stain) showing a metallic gloss. Suitable for high-grade and restrained covering of wood surfaces. Applicable in interiors and exteriors on dimensionally stable wooden parts, e.g. windows and doors, on components with limited dimensional stability, such as panelling with tongue and groove, or on dimensionally unstable wood, e.g. on facades.
    Do not use for wood with permanent contact to the ground (soil) or water/moisture.

    Material Properties

    • Noble effect due to aluminium bronze pigments.
    • Excellent UV protection due to reflective pigments.
    • High moisture proofing of dimensionally stable wooden parts.
    • Highly diffusion-capable.
    • Thin-bodied (low film-building) wood stain, easy to renovate.
    • Water-dilutable.
    • Non-blocking.
    • In conformity with VOC regulations (2010).
    • Non-dripping viscosity.

    Material Base / Vehicle

    Based on Stardust standard material, the following colour shades can be tinted via the ColorExpress tinting & mixing machine system: Neptun, Earth, Moon, Deep Space and further colours according to the Caparol 3D System plus, DB (German Federal Railways) or pearlescent colours according to RAL. 
    Colour and gloss level are influenced by substrate condition, applied number of coats and quantity of applied material.

    Gloss Level

    Silk-matt/semi-gloss (mid sheen / velvet or eggshell-like finish)

    Suitable Substrates

    Wooden parts in interiors. Dimensionally stable or limited dimensionally stable wood and dimensionally unstable wooden parts in exteriors.
    The substrate must be clean, sound/stable, and free from all substances that may prevent good adhesion. Maximum permissible moisture content in dimensionally stable wood: 13 % and in limited dimensionally stable or unstable wood: 15 %. Follow the principles of constructional wood preservation. They are the basis for a durable wood preservation with coating materials. 
    Follow BFS Data Sheet No. 18 section 2.2.3. for applying the product on panel-shaped derived timber products, e.g. solid wood, veneer layered plywood, particle boards or wood fibreboards.

    Advice for the upkeep of coated wooden parts: 
    A long-term maintenance of value can only be obtained by professional upkeep at regular intervals. 
    In Germany: Follow the advice given in BFS Data Sheet No. 18, affix C.

    Substrate Preparation

    New Wood Surfaces:
    Sand even, planed surfaces in fibre direction, clean well and and remove seeping wood contents, e.g. wood resin/rosin. Impregnate exterior surfaces with Capacryl Holz SchutzGrund.

    Existing Wood (Exteriors):
    Sand (abrade/grind off) greyed, weathered surfaces to the stable, solid substrate and clean the surface. Impregnate with Capacryl Holz SchutzGrund.

    Coated Wood:
    Remove unstable existing coatings completely to the stable substrate. Impregnate the surface with Capacryl Holz SchutzGrund. Clean stable, adherent coatings. Wash algal & fungal attack (fungi/mildew/mould) completely off and disinfect the surface with Capatox. Apply one covering priming coat of Capacryl Haftprimer in suitable colour shade for renovation (Caparol 3D/Palazzo 205). Then apply two or three coats of Capadur SilverStyle in the desired colour (wood grain technique).

    Preparation of Material

    Capadur SilverStyle is ready-to-use, but should be stirred before applying. 
    Brush application: Use special brushes for applying acrylic enamels (mixture of polyester and natural bristles, e.g. Orelmix). 
    Roller application: Use short pile polyamide roller and then refinish with a brush.

    70 - 100 ml/m2 per coat. Apply a total of min. 200 ml/m2 on exterior surfaces. Consumption is influenced by the substrate condition, e.g. roughness or absorbency. Determine the exact amount of material required by coating a test area on site.

    Application Conditions

    Lower Temperature Limit for Application and Drying:
    + 8 °C for product, substrate and ambient air.

    Drying/Drying Time

    At 20 °C and 65 % relative humidity touch dry (dry to handle) after 2 hours. Apply the following coat after 4 hours, at the earliest. The drying time is extended at lower temperatures and higher humidity or in case of insufficient air exchange, e.g. when boards are packed closely.

    Tool Cleaning

    Clean tool after use with water and wetting agent. We recommend
    the wearing of nitrile gloves.
