2K PU - Solvent based, Clear
Finish for Wood
Wood plays a very important role in every home, office, shop and
factory. It is widely used for doors, windows, furniture, paneling,
flooring, partitions, ceilings, etc. Wood, however, is easily
scratched and is highly susceptible to damage by water, oil, heat,
termites and climatic changes. Protecto-WoodKare is a revolutionary two
component polyurethane system (solvent based) that has been developed and perfected
by our R & D department to give total protection to wood. It gives
the wooden surface a superb, rich finish that will last for years
► Salient Features
Protecto-WoodKare gives an
extremely hard, tough, scratch and wear resistant layer which
protects the wood surface.
Protecto-WoodKare is extremely
fast drying and dries within 10 to 15 minutes. This prevents dust
from settling down on it and spoiling the finish.
Protecto-WoodKare enhances the
beauty of the grains and texture of the wood and gives a rich look
WATER AND CHEMICAL RESISTANCE
Protecto-WoodKare prevents the
wood from being damaged due to exposure to water. It also shows good
resistance to many dilute acids, alkalies and oils.
Protecto-WoodKare is unaffected
by spillage of tea, coffee, gravy, etc. and retains its gloss for
WEATHER & UV RESISTANCE
Contact with hot objects
and liquids have no-effect on Protecto-WoodKare. It has excellent resistance
to humidity and is not affected by changes
in weather conditions.
Exterior grade of Protecto-WoodKare has unmatched UV resistance.
Protecto-WoodKare preserves the
wood and keeps it looking unchanged for several years.
Sand the surface along the
grains with emery paper no. 180 followed by no. 320. Clean surface
free of dust and grease.
If the natural look of the wood is to
be retained then skip this step. If a stained finish is desired,
apply a ready-to-use wood stainer with a brush or muslin cloth.
Alternatively, you can prepare and apply your own stainer by mixing
pigment powder in ‘ProtectoCoat
- Woodgard Sealer’ and thinning it down with water (1
part Woodgard Sealer is mixed with 3 parts water).
If you do not wish to seal the pores
in the wood, then skip this step. If the pores in the wood are
required to be filled, apply
liberally using a brush,
spray gun (requires dilution with water) or a muslin cloth. If a
muslin cloth is used apply the Woodgard-Sealer using a circular
motion. Allow it to hard dry for 3-4 hours. Rainy days may require
Repeat filling operations, if
necessary, till all the pores are completely sealed. Smooth the
surface using emery paper no. 320.
Sealing of pores is essential if a high gloss, mirror like finish is
► TOP COAT:
Protecto-WoodKare is a two pack
system in which both components are mixed thoroughly before
applying. Use Protecto-WoodKare Glossy to obtain a high gloss finish and
Protecto-WoodKare Matt to obtain a matt finish. Mixing ratio for both cases
is 1:4 by volume. You can mix the Glossy and Matt topcoats in any
proportions for different levels of gloss.
Apply two coats of
Protecto-WoodKare by spraying (at 1.8 kg/sq. cm. pressure) or by brushing.
Lightly sand with emery paper no. 400 after drying first coat for
4-5 hours. Allow second coat to dry thoroughly. Full scratch
hardness is achieved after 4 days.
Spirit or alcoholic
solvents should not be used as thinners for Protecto-WoodKare. We recommend
- Thinner 102’
if you wish to thin Protecto-WoodKare.
To avoid whiteness and dull appearance of coatings, ensure that the
compressor is drained completely and the compressed air is free of
moisture. Similarly for brush applications the brush should be

► Storage and Precautions
Protecto-WoodKare should be stored in a cool, dry and spark free area. It
can be stored for 6 months in its original, unopened container. As
far as possible, all the material from the container should be used
up once the container is opened. To store unused Protecto-WoodKare, transfer
it to a small airtight container leaving no air gap on top. While
handling, all contact with eyes, skin, and clothes should be
avoided. Implements used for application of Protecto-WoodKare should be
- Thinner 102’.
