Sikkens Cetol WF 960 is a translucent, semi-matt, mid and top coat for exterior joinery
Sikkens CETOL WF 960 is the perfect semi-matt top coat to suit any transparent Sikkens system. CETOL® top coats give the natural appearance of the wood a fresh, attractive look and also ensure surface protection against weather issues. Improved varnish film properties make the coating less sensitive to mechanical stresses and give your wooden structures a beautiful aesthetic appearance.
Sikkens Cetol WF 960 is a 1K sprayable, semi-matt, translucent waterbourne acrylic pigmented midcoat and topcoat for exterior joinery constructions. After many years of continuing research, development and innovation Sikkens has reached a significant milestone. Through careful blending of the finest raw materials and specialist resins, have launched Cetol WF 960. As well as the usual premium performance characteristics that have been synonymous with previous Sikkens topcoat products like Cetol Duraflex WF 952, Cetol WF 960 offers users real and significant reductions in the ‘blushing/milky’ effect, so troublesome when freshly coated joinery is installed in wet conditions.
This coating is for exterior wooden components and can be tinted to any colour from the Joinery Color Classics collection with lightfast, weather resistant translucent pigments. It easy to apply and tested according to DIN EN 71 Part 3 "Safety of Toys".
It can be sprayed using a Airless or Airmix spraying system onto a variety of stable interior and exterior wooden components like Windows, Outer Doors, Conservatories and semi-stable wooden components like Rafters, Gates, Shutters and Posts.
