  • Long open time
  • High stability (low sagging)
  • Excellent opacity (hiding/covering power), even on edges
  • High impact strength and shock resistance
  • Easy and elegant to apply
  • Fast-drying
  • Excellent flow
  • Resistant to common household detergents and short-term resistance against weak acids and alkalis
  • High weather and light resistance

Material Base / Vehicle

Polyurethane alkyd resin, solvent-based, free of aromatic hydrocarbons.

Packaging/Package Size

  • White: 375 ml, 750 ml, 2,5 litres
  • Off-White: 2,5 litres


White (Weiß), Off-White (Altweiß)

The typical yellowing effect on the surface of white and light-coloured alkyd enamels may occur (caused by low UV radiation, heat or chemical influences due to e.g. ammonia vapour from detergents, adhesives, paint or sealing compounds). This yellowing is no product defect and cannot be objected.

Colour Resistance according to BFS Data Sheet No. 26:
Binder: Class B
Pigmentation: Group 1

Gloss Level

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