Perfect sanding is a must for a clean and attractive surface finish. Imperfect, loose coating must be completely removed. Intact coating should be completely sanded. We recommend a medium grit (100 to 150 grit) sandpaper which makes a good starting point for most projects, from sanding unfinished wood to removing old varnish. Finer grit (180 - 240 grit) sandpaper is great for removing the scratches left by coarser grits on unfinished wood and for lightly sanding between coats of paint. We have a range of handy D.I.Y. friendly packs exclusive to Allfinishes of abrasives at great prices from industry leading abrasive manufacturer Klingspor to help you with your project.
If you are sanding by hand we recommend using Klingspor PL 31 B Sandpaper Roll or Klingspor PL 31 B Sandpaper Sheets. If you are sanding using an orbital sander Klingspor PS 22 K Velcro Discs, a delta sander Klingspor PS 22 K Triangle 96mm, a belt sander Klingspor LS 309 XH Sanding Belts or a hand held sander Klingspor PL 31 B Sandpaper Strips.
The wood moisture content for the application of impra coating systems should be between 12–15%.
If you are prepping exterior surfaces before painting, we recommend Tesa 4440 Precision Outdoor Masking Tape which is suitable for almost all outdoor paint works and all common kinds of paints, stains and lacquers.
Stir well before use. Do not dilute. Intermediate rubbing down with a Scotchbrite pad or finer grit sand paper is recommended. Do not use steel wool.
Always consult the technical data sheet before use. Before use, read the technical data and product information. Even when working with low emission products one should take care of the customary protection measures.
impra Profilan Top can be applied by Brushing, Roller or Spraying. We recommend the use of a brush with a combination of synthetic and natural bristles. The ideal designed brush for applying stains is the Purdy Syntox Flat Brush, which is made with fine filaments and will leave a beautiful mirror like finish. Also suitable brushes for applying stains are the Purdy Monarch Elite or if you require a brush with a larger pickup the Purdy Pro-Extra Monarch. Please note that applying the product too generously and with insufficient ventilation will lead to delays in drying.
For untreated wood used outdoors and exposed to insect or fungal attack we recommend a pre-treatment with impra Profilan Prevent. Restrictions If applied on oak, idigbo or other wood species with high tannin content and used outdoors, the tannin may bleed through the paint and cause discolouration and damage even on adjacent elements. Impregnated wood on which the preservative salt has not fixed or which has absorbed too much preservative salt is not suitable to be treated with impra Profilan Top. A trial coat is recommended.
Allow to dry for approximately 1–2 hours with good ventilation in between coats. Lower temperatures and/or higher air humidity can increase the drying time..
You can overcoat with subsequent coats of impra Profilan Top as well as with normally available commercial waterborne paints. If you are using other paints we advise a trial coat as mixing paint brands may invalidate the integrity of the system.
