Hard but flexible dirt- and water-repellent finish. Sweat and saliva proof. For use on all interior timber surfaces, such as windows, banisters, furniture, toys, ceilings and panels.
Not recommended for constantly humid environments such as bathrooms and laundries. Note: for timber flooring see BIO Floor Varnish
Do not apply coatings to unseasoned or wet timber. Wood should be well sanded, dry and cleaned of greasy, waxy and dirty contaminants using BIO Thinner.
Round off sharp edges. It is also good practice to prime back surfaces. Hardwoods and timbers rich in natural oils, waxes, acids and terpenes should be degreased using Bio Thinner, because these substances may mix with the varnish and prolong its drying time. Let dry for 24 hours. Imperfect coats may require complete stripping before applying BIO Products.
Baltic Pine and Pinus Radiata: Prime with one coat of Priming Oil. Remove excess oil after 15-30 minutes. Allow to dry fro 24 hours, then apply BIO All Purpose Varnish.
Stir thoroughly before use with a broad flat stirrer. Thin with 10-20% BIO Thinner to obtain a smooth flowing consistency. Brush thinly and evenly, working varnish well into the grain. Thick coats wrinkle when dry. Maintain a wet edge when painting. Avoid bubbles.
Allow 12 to 24 hours to dry between coats. Lightly sand between coats if necessary with fine sandpaper. Apply the second and subsequent coats only after the previous coat has thoroughly dried. Low temperature and humid conditions prolong the drying time.
Do not paint below +10C and or above 80% humidity or in cold damp conditions; when condensation, rain, dew or frost are likely to occur; on hot days; in direct sunlight; and on hot surfaces. Provide adequate ventilation during application and drying. Reaches maximum durability after 21 days.
