1st COAT     Dilute EcoCer Varnish Exterior with 50% water, maximum 5 liters of water per one (1) 10-Liter bucket of EcoCer Varnish Exterior. Apply varnish with a high quality brush in an even and constant pattern, so that a perfect coverage is achieved. Allow to dry for at least 4 – 8 hours before applying 2nd coat. Wash paint brushes immediately with soap and water after completion of use. It is advised not to use rollers for high quality finishes. Allow EcoCer Varnish Exterior to dry naturally, do not use dryers, heat guns, or heat lamps to force dry product. EcoCer Varnish Exterior should be tinted a minimum 5% with natural oxide color pigments to increase UV protection. It is not recommended to apply EcoCer Varnish Exterior without tinting the varnish prior to application on wood.

2nd COAT     Dilute EcoCer Varnish Exterior with 20% water, maximum 2 liters of water to one (1) 10-Liter bucket. Apply varnish in an even and constant pattern, so that a perfect coverage is achieved.

3rd COAT     Dilute EcoCer Varnish Exterior with 10% water, maximum 1 liters of water to one (1) 10-Liter bucket. Apply varnish in an even and constant pattern, so that a perfect coverage is achieved.

Paint Sprayers

1ST COAT     To provide sufficient mil thickness and protection from oils and water, apply 2 coats with a brush on all wood surfaces (see brush instructions above), lightly sanding or steel wool to remove undesirable textures, before applying a spray finish. Spray 3rd coat application of EcoCer Varnish Exterior with a water dilution of 0 – 10% maximum. Remove all dust from surfaces carefully, using a tack cloth or soft rag prior to applying EcoCer Varnish Exterior with a sprayer. Spray at an even distance and in a consistent pattern to provide a professional finish.

2ND COAT     Application with a 2nd coat is not necessary except in the case to increase the level of the quality of the finish. Maintenance of spray equipment is a priority to create excellent finishes.

SPRAY TIP USAGE     Apply paint product with a # 0.011 – 0.013 mm size spray tip for airless sprayers and compressor spray guns. Always use new spray tips for starting a paint job for best results. Test spray capacity of spray tip before starting production work. This will also conserve the amount of paint necessary to complete the job.

Mixing Paint & Water

Most of our paint and varnish formulas are concentrated and require water to be added to them for proper use. This process means we can sell more coverage in an economic package that decreases the cost for transport, reduces the carbon footprint, helping the your pocket book and the environment.

Tools

Apply with a high quality brush or with an appropriate sprayer and sprayer tip. New sprayer tips should be used to prevent product waste and provided for a more perfect finish.

Drying Time

Allow a drying time between coats of at least 4 – 8 hours. For application on furniture and cabinets, drying time will depend on size of area painted, humidity, heat, cold; allow 4 hours minimum, test for dryness before applying a 2nd coat. Optimum time allowance is 8 hours between coats.

EcoCer Varnish Exterior is usually tack free in 2 – 4 hours depending on humidity and temperature. With lower temperature and humidity more time may be needed. If sanding is required between coats, allow 24 hours of drying prior to sanding. When possible, allow 72 hours to permit proper handling and transport after application of final coat. Allow 14 days to achieve maximum durability and strength. Avoid exposure to water and ice for at least 7 days, and great care must be given to avoid over extended exposure to water until 14 days has passed. Ideal temperature for application is between 18°C / 60°F – 29°C / 85°F.

Consumption/Coverage

Approximately 2,000 ft2 / 186 mt2 average per 10 liters bucket, 1 coat, diluted 20% – 50% when applying 3 coats. Approximately 200 ft2 / 18.7 mt2 average per 1 liter bucket, 1 coat, diluted 20% – 50% when applying 3 coats. Approximate US Gallon equivalent coverage 756 ft2 for 1 coat coverage. Determine exact consumption by performing a test on the surface to be treated.

Packaging

Plastic buckets of 1, 2.5, 5 and 10 liters.

Application Cycles on Different Types of Bases

Make sure base is solid, dry and well cleaned, prepared with skill. It is recommended to observe the rule VOB DIN 18 363, Part C, paragraph 3.

Virgin Wood

Exterior wood surfaces should be pre-sanded as required by a professional finisher. If a stain color is desired, for most light and medium/dark stain colors, EcoCer Varnish Exterior can be tinted and applied to virgin wood surfaces. For deeper/darker wood stains apply EcoCer Stain to wood according to instructions (see EcoCer Stain instructions). EcoCer Varnish Exterior can be used as a conditioner (see EcoCer Stain Instructions, Section; CONDITIONER FORMULA). Follow with 1st application of EcoCer Varnish Exterior diluted at 50% with water, and apply 2nd and 3rd coat according to instructions indicated above.

Existing Varnished/Painted Wood

EcoCer Varnish Exterior cannot be applied over previously varnished or painted wood, except in the case where EcoCer Varnish Exterior has been applied previously. For re-coats, it is suggested to clean surfaces with water and a mild dish detergent (diluted with water) or all purpose cleaner (see AVOID USING THESE CLEANING PRODUCTS Section below), to remove all dirt, dust and debris, remove any cracked or damaged varnish, and re-apply 1 coat of EcoCer Varnish Exterior diluted with water at 10%. For more aged surfaces re-apply 2 coats of EcoCer Varnish Exterior, 1st coat diluted with water at 20%, and the 2nd coat diluted with water at 10%. Any applications should be done with a brush.

New Wood Cabinets & Furniture

Solid wood cabinets and furniture should be pre-sanded as required by a professional finisher. If a stain color is desired, apply EcoCer Stain to wood according to instructions, and any additional applications as may be required such as lime wash or consolidator. Ceruse finishes using BioCalce Classico and TerraMare Velatura must be sealed with a 1st coat application of EcoCer Varnish Matte or Satin diluted with water at 50% (see EcoCer Stain Technical Data Sheet, Section: FLOORS; STAIN & LIME WASH). Allow all pre-varnish finishes to dry 8 hours before application of any varnish. After 1st coat of interior varnish on ceruse finish, apply 3 coats of EcoCer Varnish Exterior as indicated in instructions above. Brush application is recommended. Cabinet and furniture finishes require at least two (2)-coats of EcoCer Varnish Exterior be applied by brush to provide sufficient mil thickness for protection against oils and water. A 3rd coat may be sprayed to create a smooth luster finish.

Veneered Wood

EcoCer Varnish Exterior is ideal for solid wood but depending on the type of veneer, what type of glues and or veneer system used, the type of base the veneer was attached to, may be problematic for the penetration of EcoCer Varnishes into veneered wood surfaces. To facilitate proper penetration on wood veneers, dilute EcoCer Varnish Exterior with water 100%, and allow drying. Then follow instructions applying EcoCer Varnish diluted 50% with water, 2nd coat, and then 20% diluted for the 3rd coat, and finally 10% dilution for the 4th coat. Perform several tests to verify adherence and durability prior to beginning commencement of the application of your finishes. Some wood veneer systems will not permit penetration of varnish. It is highly recommend to not use veneered wood finishes for any exterior environments where such wood types are directly exposed to sun or inclimate weather conditions.

Concrete Floors, Sidewalks or Driveway

BioCalce Antico cannot be used on Portland Cement based floors, sidewalk or driveways.

Painted Finishes

EcoCer Varnish Exterior can be applied to new water-based paints, providing that careful tests have been preformed to assure adherence to such materials. All pre-painted finishes on wood require that they be lightly sanded so as permit penetration of EcoCer Varnish Exterior into the surface pours of the paint. These types of applications do not guarantee that sufficient adherence will provide proper resistance to sun and inclimate weather, and no guarantees implied or non-implied can be provided when applying varnish over any type of water based or solvent based paint.

Slaked Lime Plaster & Stuccos

EcoCer Varnish Exterior should not be applied to slaked lime plasters and stuccos like BioCement GF, BioMarmorino Satin exposed to the environment.

Decaying or Crumbling Stuccos or Powdery Surfaces

EcoCer Varnish Exterior should not be applied to any type of stucco product exposed to the environment.

Storage

Store in a cool, dry and protected from frost. Close the open containers with care. Store liquids only in plastic buckets.

Warning!

Do not apply any products in direct exposure to strong/hot sunlight, rain, high humidity (mist) or in the presence of strong wind. Beware of the danger of frost overnight. If applied by roller or sprayer, protect surrounding surfaces as necessary. Protect eyes and skin from splashes of paint. Cover glass, ceramic, natural stone, brick, metal, wood, painted surfaces and glazed tiles. Clean affected areas immediately with water. Prominent elements of the building (cornices, parapets, etc.,) should be treated with skill, covering flashings, gutters, copper coatings, etc. …

Do not work in air temperature lower than 10°C / 50°F. Clean work tools with water immediately after use. Keep out of reach of children. In case of contact with eyes and skin, wash immediately with plenty of water. In cases of consumption, consult a Doctor or call the CDC Poison Center (see Safety Data Sheet).

Avoid Using These Cleaning Products!

Aggressive cleaners can damage Acryl-polyurethane Waterborne Varnishes. Do not use vinegar, lemon, or orange based degreaser cleaning products, chemical or commercial degreaser, such as Clorox brand Formula 409 products, or Clorox brand toilet bowl cleaners, or any similar type products, which also contain degreaser capabilities, as these types of products will permanently damage or remove waterborne floor finishes, stains and varnishes. Commercial finishers and floor applicators have requested that most commercial or industrial cleaning products not be used as most of their cleaning products will damage Acryl-Polyurethane Varnishes. For further information about these products it is advised to research on the internet about how these products can affect your wood product finishes and their environmental impact in general.

Professional floor finishers recommend to clean water based varnishes, with non citric, plant based cleaning products such as Method brand All Purpose Cleaner or Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner for best results.
