Interlux Clear Wood Sealer

Clear Wood Sealer

A fast drying wood sealer with excellent film builds. Suitable for priming wood prior to application of single pack varnishes or two component urethane finishes. Due to its grain-filling properties, the use of Clear Wood Sealer will cut down on the total number of coats required to achieve a traditional, premium Yacht finish - on both exterior and interior surfaces. The fast drying formulation allows applicators to apply multiple coats in one day, reducing the total turnaround time and resource requirements significantly. With exceptional impact, scratch and wear resistance, Clear Wood Sealer is suitable for use in new boat production environment and for restoration projects. Overcoat able with a number of clear and pigmented Interlux finishes, Clear Wood Sealer provides flexibility in choice and the ability to customize the final finish to customer or designer requirements.

In Good Condition: (Two-pack only). Clean with Special Thinner 216, Reducing Solvent 2316N or Reducing Solvent 2333N. Sand smooth with 240-320 grit paper. Remove sanding dust with thinners. (One-pack only). Remove all previous coatings.
In Poor Condition: Remove all previous coatings.
BARE WOOD: Sand with 180 grade (grit) paper. Lightly sand with 240 grade (grit) paper. Ensure sanding debris is removed prior to proceeding. If wiping with solvent then allow to dry completely before applying first coat of varnish.
Priming bare wood:: Thin first coat up to 50% with Reducing Solvent 2333N and apply by brush to achieve penetration. This will increase the drying time of the first coat.
OILY WOODS e.g. Teak: After sanding, clean the surface with Thinner 910. Apply the first coat of Clear Wood Sealer immediately after the evaporation of thinners as teak contains oily substances that can cause adhesion problems.

Method Apply 2-4 full coats, until a satisfactory finish is achieved. The number of coats is dependent upon application method and required finish. Sanding is not required, however if deemed necessary for improved aesthetics use 240-320 grit paper.

Hints Mixing Add curing agent to the base, stir and leave for 10 minutes to allow bubbles to disperse.
Thinner Spray Reducer 2316N or Brush Reducer 2333N
Thinning Brushing - Thin first coat by 50% with Reducing Solvent 2333N. Rollering - Thin each coat 10% with Reducing Solvent 2333N. Conventional Spraying - Thin each coat 10-15% with Reducing Solvent Spray 2316N.
Cleaner Spray Reducer 2316N or Brush Reducer 2333N
Ventilation and Humidity Control During application and drying in a confined spaces, continuous ventilation is required to extract solvent vapors for health and safety reasons and to assist the drying process. To achieve sufficient curing, the maximum relative air humidity should not exceed 80%.
Conventional Spray For conventional spray, thin 10-15% by volume with Reducing Solvent Spray 2316N. Pressure: 3.5-4.0 bar (50-60 psi). Tip Size: 1.0-1.4 mm/40-50 thou.
Brush Use a long-haired, wide, flat brush when brushing.

Some Important Points Ambient temperature should be minimum 5C/41F and maximum 35C/95F. Substrate temperature should be minimum 5C/40F and maximum 35C/95F. Substrate temperature should be 3C/5F above dew point to prevent condensation. Product temperature should be minimum 5C/41F and maximum 35C/95F. Relative humidity should be greater than 30% and should not exceed 80%. Avoid painting in direct sunlight. Do not use unless mixed thoroughly with the curing agent at specified ratio.

This product may get darker on exposure and is therefore not recommended for use on light-coloured wood such as ash or light-coloured oak. Do not apply over conventional paints or flexible constructions. Clear Wood Sealer should only be used as a primer/sealer and should always be used with a suitable finish.

Compatibility/Substrates Marine plywood and common tropical hardwood such as mahogany, teak and cherry. For aged Clear Wood Sealer, sand the surface with 240-320 girt paper and wipe clean.

Number of Coats Apply 2-4 coats. The number of coats required is dependent upon the porosity of the wood. More coats may be required to completely fill the wood grain
