Tar lazure contains at least 70% pine tar, processed linseed oil, and pine turpentine. Tar lazure is absorbed into the wood, where it inhibits the effects of rot, mould, and blue stain fungi. Tar lazure gives the wood an attractive dark brown, transparent, and water-repellent surface. Consumption for sawn wood is between three and five litres per square metre and for planed wood and logs it is between five and ten litres per square metre.
Areas of application: Wooden buildings, log houses, wooden roofs that are made using shingles, chips, shakes, etc, eaves, boats, and harbour quays. Tar lazure is perfect for a final finish for wooden products and objects, since it contains a large percentage of pine tar and leaves a thin protective layer on the surface of the wood. As a base before applying tar lazure use Ecobase and a light or dark tar oil.
Ingredients: Pine tar, linseed oil, pine turpentine
Colour: Dark brown (at least 70% pine tar)
Pre-treatment: It is important that the wood material that is to be treated is dry, with a maximum wood moisture level that is below 21% and a relative air humidity that is below 80%. Clean any old treatable surfaces of any dirt, mould, and removable materials.
Instructions for use: Pine turpentine may be used as the solvent. Mix carefully before and during application. Apply the material in thin layers with a brush and allow it to be absorbed. Excess material that is no longer being absorbed can be wiped off if necessary. Between one and three finishing layers will be required, depending on the quality of the wooden surface and its purpose of use. Finish end cuts of wood with special care. A new finish should be applied after a year, if necessary. Tar lazure is not recommended for varnished or painted surfaces. Its use for any other purpose and contrary to the advice given here is not recommended.
Drying time: Thinly brushed, between three to seven days, depending on the substrate and weather conditions.
Cleaning equipment: Pine turpentine
