ropimex® Wood impregnating agent
Protection against moisture, fungi and dirt

Ready-to-use, water and oil-repellent wood impregnating agent for indoor and outdoor use

Basis:

  • HO system

Also available as concentrate

ropimex® Wood impregnation is a hydrophobic and oleophobic impregnation for wood. ropimex® wood impregnation creates a thin film on the impregnated surface and hampers/prevents the adhesion of dirt. Water and other liquids such as red wine cannot penetrate into the surface but remain on the impregnated surface from where they can be easily absorbed/cleaned.
The treated surface has an easy-to-clean (ETC) effect and is therefore easier to clean or can be cleaned with milder cleaning agents. Due to the hydrophobic property, a fungicidal effect is also achieved.

Generak Information:
Appearance: transparent, slightly yellow coloured liquid
Solids content: approx. 10 % by weight
Material consumption: 50 - 500 ml/m2
density: 0.99 - 1.01 g/cm3
Dilution: ready to use (ready-to-use solution, water-based), can be diluted with water e.g. 1:1 (primer)

Application:
Wear gloves and safety goggles during work. The surface must be clean, free of grease and dry.

The application takes place in three steps:
1. cleaning,
2. coating
3. drying/curing.

1. cleaning
The surface must be dry, free of dirt, oil and grease. Please test the material compatibility on a sample surface in advance.

2. coating
The material can be processed at a temperature of 5°C and 50°C. Spraying with a pump spray bottle is possible. Apply as much material as necessary until the surface no longer absorbs liquid.

3. drying/curing
After applying ropimex® wood impregnation, the impregnated surface shows the desired properties after 3 hours at 20°C, but ideally it should be waited for 12 hours. After 24h a second impregnation can be done to intensify the effect. The consumption of ropimex® wood impregnation is reduced by up to 50 % (material is no longer so absorbent).

storage
12 months in original container (10°C - 25°C, protect from direct sunlight and frost, keep container always closed. Store in original container).
