The main degradation factors for pain are weatherrelated, in most cases to the combined action of water and sun which might cause even serious damage to wooden doors or windows.
These are the main issues:
To resolve these issues, Remmers has developed the Longprotection Plus cycle which acts through:
The Remmers cycle has been awarded the most prestigious European certification on long-life, CATAS WKI PREMIUM PLUS, as well as a number of other certifications in many European countries. Also compliance with environmental and human health standards are certified.
A correct painting cycle for windows always starts by applying one impregnating coat which serves the following purposes:
■ Ensure protection against xylophage fungi
■ Stabilise and reinforce the bonds of lignin which keep the wood fibres together
■ Reduce the capillary absorption of water
■ Insulate from extractives in clear-coloured varnishing cycles
■ Paint the wood in etched cycles
■ Facilitate fixing of the subsequent base coating
After the impregnator coat, if you wish to make the paining cycle outcome as long-lasting as possible, you will need a base paint coating.
BASE APPLIED WITH FLOW-COATING FOR OPTIMAL
The laminar resins in Remmers base coating are very flexible and adjust perfectly to the support; this results in optimal wetting of the pores and maximum waterproofing even if just one coat is applied. This is a particularly important feature in broadleaf wood types, for example oak, which have deep pores.
INSULATING TREATMENT FOR CLEAR-COLOURED VARNISH
The addition of zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to Remmers laminar resinns has allowed for outstanding insulation performance levels against coloured substances in wood. Remmers, therefore, “allows for something which was unthinkable in the past”: white varnishing with a completely water-based cycle on oak wood without any tannin stains; white
varnishing is also possible on resin-rich wood, which prevents yellow stains around the nodes as can be seen in the pictures on the left.
The Remmers finishing paint is the best protection
screen for underlying layers against the weather.
Its features are:
OPTIMAL WATER RESISTANCE
The new Remers Aqua-Stopp molecules allow for water resistance in a very short time, as well as to solve the issue of bubble formation and damage caused by ice. Because they are so compact, they have such numerous and reactive bonds and
contain waterproofing additives, already 72 hours after application a protection barrier against water infiltrations is created, which in traditional paints takes about six weeks to form.
OPTIMA UV-RAY RESISTANCE
The state-of-the-art UV screens (Prismolux: see left) used by Remmers for finishing paints behave like very small prisms which decompose UV rays into broader radiations but with less energy; this prevents the issue of loss of effectiveness over time and thus provides extremely long-lasting protection. This means that the film does not harden, does not age and no cracks are formed.
Another important component for protection against sun rays consists in the special coneshaped
pigments used by Remmers, large amounts of which can be added to the paint, thus providing high protection and ensuring optimal transparency in the process.
Our company has always been attentive to issues related to environmental protection and user safety; for this reason we have decided to conduct research on painting products which are extremely pure and technologically advanced, as well as meeting the highest indoor safety standards. This objective has been achieved thanks to Remmers, the most prestigious and important manufacturer of door and window paints, which guarantees:
■ No chemical hazardous to human health
■ Indoor air quality
■ The same health standards used for paints on children’s toys, certified according to the EN-71/3 (heavy metal migration) standards
Thanks to this technology, our products have been made healthier and safer, using
substances which have been awarded the most prestigious voluntary certifications in
