FERROLIT Wood water repellent is used for the water‐repellent treatment of absorbent natural wooden decks, fences, siding, docks or any unpainted wood that needs protection from moisture. The product is a weather‐resistant, a single component is a low‐VOC, organo‐silicone emulsion. Typical coverage rates for the wood range from 40 to 90 square feet per litre, depending on the porosity of the wood.
Hydrocarbon solvent‐free, no VOC
Application also possible on surfaces with residual humidity
Formation of the hydrophobic effect
Reduction of water and dirt absorption during periods of moisture
Fast liberation of humidity during dry periods due to high vapour permeability.
Maintenance of breathing properties because there is no surface layer
Resistance to UV radiation
The colour of the wood is normally not enhanced (preliminary test)
Coverage - Approx 4‐9 square meters/litre, depending on the absorptivity of the wood.
Colour - Milky white
Density - Approx 1 g/cm³
FERROLIT Wood repellent is suited to achieve a water repellent effect on absorbent natural wood.
Instructions for Use:
The surface must be clean, dry and free from all layers.
To determine consumption efficiency prepare a sample area.
Working temperature 5 ‐ 25°C. After application, protect against rain for approx. 24 hours.
Depending on absorptive capacity apply 1 ‐ 2 times fully and evenly with a brush or spraying device.
Disregarding the processing guidelines can lead to irreparable damage! - Tools can be cleaned with water
Special protective measure in case of spray application: avoid the formation of aerosols and risk to third parties. Do not breathe vapour (protective mask).
Ensure sealing of the reverse side and lateral surfaces of the wood, so that rising moisture cannot penetrate into the wood.
Impregnations do not offer sufficient protection against waterlogging.
If the treated area is cleaned, a drying time of 1 – 2 days (depending on the temperature) is necessary.
A treatment with Ferrolit wood water repellent prevents the wood from getting dirty again, respectively, the process will be delayed considerably. Should the surface become dirty again it can be cleaned much more easily.
Unsuited or aggressive cleaning agents, as well as pressure washers, may destroy the impregnation. We recommend using AKEMI Crystal Clean only for the regular cleaning.
Ferrolit wood water repellent is not suited for non‐absorbent surfaces.
A surplus of the product causes blooming and spotting.
Use AKEMI Liquid Glove to protect your hands during working.
Surfaces to be treated must be protected against direct solar radiation.
An evaluation of the impregnation according to its water repellent effect is not sufficient because this effect shows on the surface only.
The water repellent effect can be diminished or be invisible due to dust settings.
The colour of the wood surfaces will not or only slightly change. Therefore it is recommendable to test on a sample piece or an inconspicuous area.
For adequate waste disposal container must be completely emptied.
When applying the product correctly it is not hazardous for health.
2 years if stored in cool place free from frost in its tightly closed original container.
