Linitop Acryl Vernis is a colourless, protective and decorative water-based varnish designed especially for use on interior wood surfaces. It’s perfect for furniture and panelling and it’s enriched with polyurethane resins giving it excellent resistance to abrasion, scratches and water.

This highly flexible varnish decorates and waterproofs the wood whilst also enhancing its natural beauty and it is available in deep matt, satin and gloss finishes. It can also be used with a wood stain underneath to produce a coloured finish, for example you can pre-treat your wood with coloured woodstain Linitop Acryl Prim and then use 2 coats of Linitop Acryl Vernis on top. The hard-wearing but flexible finish makes it perfect for use in difficult environments such as bathrooms and wet rooms – it’s washable too.

Linitop Acryl Vernis is a water-based varnish which is easy to apply and has excellent flow. It can be applied to old, clean, well-adhered and roughened varnish and can be applied with a brush or roller. It is fast-drying and can be re-coated after just 6 hours and it’s completely odourless too so no unpleasant smells when working inside.

Recommendations before application

  • Ready for use, do not dilute.
  • Shake well before application
  • Do not apply at an ambient air and wood temperature of less than 10°C and greater than 25°C. The relative humidity will be of the order of 50% for optimum drying
  • Protect everything that does not have to be treated
  • The moisture of the wood must not be greater than 12%
  • When using indoors, use in well ventilated areas

Surface Preparation

Use on wood whole usage, nature, quality, treatments and preparation comply with the applicable standards and DTU (DTU 59.1). The inspection and preparation of the surface are the responsibility of the user.

The wood must be dry, clean, sound and prepared (degreased, sanded, dusted according to the standard practises for this type of work).

New wood surfaces

  • Prepare the surface (sand with coarse and medium grade according tot he condition of the surface). Then finish by fine sanding (grit 180) according to standard practices. This will encourage and optimise the opening of the pores.

Already stained wood

  • Meticulously roughen the entire surface to enable better adhesion (grit 280).

Previously coated surfaces

All previous coatings must be completely and thoroughly removed.

  • Oils and sealers: Strip with Aquanett or Prepdeck then neutralise with Net-Trol
  • Solvent (oil or alkyd based finishes): Strip with Dilunett then neutralise with Net-Trol
  • Acrylic finishes (Water-based): Strip with Prepdeck then neutralise with Net-Trol
  • Other finishes i.e. 2 pack epoxies, urethanes etc: Strip with DSP 800 then clean the surface to remove residual paraffin

Note: Hardwoods and woods rich in tannins e.g. Oak, Chestnut, Douglas Fir, Cedar, etc. may darken with Aquanett, Prepdeck and Dilunett, neutralising with Net-Trol immediately after rinsing will lighten and restore the woods colour.

Tips from the Professionals

  1. Preferably use a microfibre roller
  2. Apply Linitop Acryl Vernis in the direction of the wood grain, criss cross the passes and even them out
  3. For an optimum finish, round the corners of the wood by manual sanding and then dust off
  4. Pay particular attention to grooves and butts
  5. On bare wood, dilute the first coat with 10% water
  6. If you want a coloured finish, first apply 1 coat of Linitop Acryl Prim. Then after drying but without sanding, complete with 2 coats of Linitop Acryl Vernis (sanding between coats).
