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.

Application Guidance

Application tools

  • Brush, short mohair roller, spray gun


New wood surfaces

  • Sand (grit 180) to encourage and optimise the opening of the pores
  • Apply 2 coats of Vernis
  • Wait 24 hours between each coat
  • For a well crafted finish, lightly sand manually (grit 280) between each coat then dust off
  • For highly absorbent wood, apply 3 coats

Already stained wood

  • Meticulously roughen the entire surface to enable better adhesion.
  • Apply 1-2 coats of Vernis

Previously coated surfaces

  • Remove any previous coatings by using one of our strippers listed under ‘previously coated surfaces’
  • Apply a coat of Vernis
  • Allow to dry for 24 hours
  • Sand (grit 280) then clean meticulously
  • Apply a second coat


Minor regular maintenance

  • Apply 1-2 coats of Vernis depending on the condition of the surface after sanding.

Highly damaged surface maintenance

  • Make the wood bare by stripping and sanding, then apply 1-2 coats of Vernis. Apply 3 coats to porous wood.

Clean Up

Clean all tools and equipment with white Spirit

Tips from the professionals

  • Preferably use a short mohair roller
  • To fill small surface imperfections first apply a coat of dilute Linitop Vernis. Next apply a coat of Linitop Grain Filler and sand lightly after hardening and dust off. Finish with a coat of Linitop Vernis and repeat the process if necessary.
  • Apply Linitop Vernis in the direction of the wood grain, criss cross the passes and even them out
  • If you want a coloured finish, first apply 1 coat of Linitop Primer & Finish. Then after drying but without sanding, complete with 2 coats of Linitop Vernis (sanding between coats).
  • For an optimum finish, round the corners of the wood by manual sanding and then dust off
  • Pay particular attention to grooves and butts
  • When applying by spray, always back-brush or back-roll to avoid runs and aid the penetration of the finish
  • For the first coat, dilute with white spirit between 5 and 10% – do the same when applying with a spray gun
