  • LV Texte

    Field of Application

    Suitable for colourful designing as well as moisture and UV protection of dimensionally stable wooden parts, e.g. windows and doors, or components with limited dimensional stability, such as panelling with tongue and groove, shutters, gates, framework construction, etc.  Also suitable for wooden parts of unstable shape, e.g. panelling, fences, shingles, balustrades, shuttering, pergola, etc.
    Only suitable for exterior use. The product is provided with a preservative against deterioration in the coating film due to fungal (fungi/mildew/mould) attack.

    Note: The film protection agent can only temporarily counteract the forming of fungal growth (attack). On surfaces subjected to extreme loads the fungal attack may occur prematurely. The product cannot fight the cause of fungal attack. The efficiency cannot be projected because it is highly depending on existing biological conditions on site.

    This wood stain is unsuitable for use on wooden parts in direct contact with soil. Exterior doors and windows may be treated on all sides with the product. Capadur UniversalLasur is a decorative translucent finish and has a protective effect against moisture (humidity) and UV radiation. 
    Follow BFS Data Sheet No. 18, section 2.2.3 et seq. for coating boards of derived timber products,
    e.g. wood plates, veneer plywood.

    Pine, Oak (light-coloured), Walnut, Nut Tree, Palisander (Rosewood), Teak, Mahogany, Ebony, Transparent, and a nearly opaque renovation shade for wood grain technique.
    All colour shades can be blended in any mixture ratio.

    Tinting via ColorExpress stations (Capalac mix) in special colours of the Caparol 3D System PLUS colour card and in many colour shades of other colour collections. Tinting base is the colour shade "Transparent".

    Note: Some tints are only limited suitable for exterior use. Detailed information available at ColorExpress stations. Use transparent product only for priming coat (equalising the absorbency of wooden substrates) before applying pigmented coats of wood stain, otherwise a sufficient protection of wood from UV rays cannot be guaranteed.

    Gloss Level

    The gloss level may vary depending on the wooden substrate.


    Keep in a cool, but frost-free place, in tightly closed packaging.

    Suitable Substrates

    Absorbent, dimensionally stable wood, limited dimensionally 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. Max. permissible wood moisture in dimensionally stable wood: 13 %, in limited dimensionally stable wood and in parts of unstable shape: 15 %.
    The principles of constructional wood preservation are to be observed. They are the basis for a durable wood protection with coating materials.

    Substrate Preparation

    New Wooden Parts:
    Sand smooth and planed surfaces in fibre direction, clean thoroughly and remove seeping wood contents, e.g. wood resin/rosin and resin galls.

    Untreated Existing Wood:
    Remove greyish, weathered surfaces until a sound/stable substrate is obtained, then clean thoroughly.

    Coated Wood
    Sand the surface of existing alkyd resin wood stain and clean the surface. Remove unsound existing coatings.

    Method of Application

    Apply Capadur UniversalLasur only with a brush. Stir Capadur UniversalLasur before use.

    Surface Coating System

    Application on Uncoated Exterior Wooden Parts:
    Minimum 3 applications of pigmented wood stain are required for proper protection of wood from UV rays. Transparent product should only be used in addition, to equalise/adjust the substrate's absorbency. Renovation on sound alkyd resin wood stain: 1-2x Capadur UniversalLasur.

    Wood Grain Technique on Exterior Wood:

    for spottled surfaces or sufaces which cannot be coated properly with translucent (semi-transparent) wood stain

    Application Conditions

    Lower Temperature Limit for Application and Drying:
    Min. 5° C for product, substrate and ambient air.
    Relative humidity must not exceed 80 %.

    Drying/Drying Time

    At 20° C and 65 % relative humidity recoatable after 12 to 16 hours and completely dry after 24 hours. Lower temperatures and higher humidity extend the drying time. On wood containing wood components (e.g. oak wood) the drying time may be longer. The surface coating system of Capadur UniversalLasur is suitable for exterior wood.
