Oxid Vernis

Oxid Vernis is a single pack clear varnish, for use on new or oxidised metals

Oxid Vernis packaging
  • Decorates, Protects, Weatherproofs – High UV resistance
  • Long lasting and with high resistance – Optimal protection in harsh climates
  • Ideal for highly humid interior environments
  • Expands and contracts with the structure – no peeling
  • Maintains the natural appearance of the substrate.

Oxid Vernis is a single pack clear varnish, enriched with polyurethane-modified alkyd resins for use on new or oxidised metals that have previously been treated with Owatrol Oil and where the natural look of the surface is to be maintained. Combining performance with ease of application, Oxid Vernis is long-lasting, has high UV resistance and is especially adapted for harsh climates.

Oxid Vernis is perfect for use on interior and exterior metals such as gates, furniture, fences, ornaments etc and can be used on horizontal or vertical surfaces with ease, whilst maintaining the natural appearance of the substrate.

Ideal uses for Oxid Vernis

  • Decorates, Protects, Weatherproofs – High UV resistance.
  • Great for use on new or oxidised surfaces – Ferrous and non-ferrous metals.
  • Ideal for highly humid interior environments.
  • Expands and contracts with the structure – No peeling.

Surface Preparation

Surfaces must be clean, dry and free of all grease, oil, salt and other surface contamination. Use an appropriate solvent depending on the substrate and contamination e.g. Acetone or Owaclean, to clean the surface prior to any of the following preparation processes. Round off any sharp edges to allow better film build.

Ferrous Metals (New or Rusted):

Remove all traces of mill scale, rust, rust scale and other foreign matter by blasting, grinding or mechanical abrasion. Remove all blast or manual preparation residue by vacuum cleaner, air blower or stiff clean brush.

If required and desired wipe over surface with a cloth soaked in a fast flash off solvent e.g. Acetone (NOT White Spirit) to remove any remaining dust residue.

Allow surface to dry.

Apply an application of Owatrol Oil and allow to dry.

Non-ferrous Metals (New or Oxidised)

Sand surface using appropriate grade abrasive or a passivating solution. For Aluminium surfaces ensure abrasive is compatible. If required thoroughly dust off and wipe surface with a cloth soaked in a fast flash off solvent e.g. Acetone (NOT White Spirit) to remove any remaining dust residue.

Allow to dry.

Apply an application of Owatrol Oil and allow to dry.

Galvanised/Zinc Surfaces

New Surfaces (12 months and under): Pickle with a phosphoric solution. Weathered Surfaces (12 months+): Clean with a suitable solvent e.g. Acetone, Owaclean etc. Apply an application of Owatrol Oil and allow to dry.

Note: Depending on the preparation process used some discolouration of the surface may be experienced.

Rusted Surfaces (To maintain the rust appearance)

Remove all loose and flaking rust back to a sound surface and edge by wire brush or scraping. Thoroughly dust off.

Apply an application of Owatrol Oil and allow to dry.

Previously Coated Surfaces

Remove all previous coatings by suitable means – blasting, grinding, mechanical abrasion or chemically stripping with DSP 800 or Dilunett to restore the surface to its original condition. If required sand surface with appropriate grade abrasive. Thoroughly dust off.

Apply an application of Owatrol Oil and allow to dry.

Note: Where the surface is rinsed with water allow to dry 24 to 72 hours before applying Owatrol Oil.

Dilutions

1 part Owayell to 5 parts water.
Leave to work 5-10 minutes.
Rinse thoroughly and allow to dry

Application

  • Use as is.
  • Do not thin.
  • Stir well before and during use.
  • Apply 1st coat of Oxid Vernis and allow to dry 24 hours.
  • Sand surface with 280 grit abrasive and thoroughly dust off.
  • Apply 2nd coat of Oxid Vernis.

Note: Adding Owatrol Oil to Oxid Vernis, makes brushing easier and gives Oxid Vernis even greater flexibility, further reducing the risk of peeling and cracking.

Maintenance & Cleaning

Cleaning

  • Clean surface regularly with a brush, vacuum cleaner or with fresh water.
  • For the first 14 days do not clean Oxid Vernis with water.
  • Do not use aggressive chemical cleaners to remove grease or any other type of dirt that has accumulated on the surface (Contact us).

Maintenance

Oxid Vernis in good condition:

  • Sand surface with 280 grit abrasive and thoroughly dust off.
  • Apply 1st coat Oxid Vernis with 25% Owatrol Oil added.
  • Allow to dry 24 to 48 hours.
  • Apply 2nd coat of Oxid Vernis.

Oxid Vernis in poor condition:

  • See “Previously Coated Surfaces” in “Surface Preparation” above.
  • Apply Oxid Vernis as directed in “Application” above.

Clean up

Clean all tools and equipment with White Spirits while still wet. If allowed to dry, remove with paint stripper.

Things to remember

  • Cover everything you do not wish to paint.
  • Apply between 5˚C and 35˚C.
  • Do not apply in direct sunlight or on to hot surfaces.
  • Ensure the room is well ventilated when using inside.
