Waterbased External 1K and 2K Lacquers


The VERNITES waterbased preservatives are coatings that combine aesthetic and protective factors; they contain resins specifically developed to penetrate and protect the lignin and the wood fibres. Moreover, in our formulations there is a special  substance that protects the wood from fungi, molds, bacteria and xylophages. The preservatives are coloured with pigments suitable for outdoor use that reflect the sun's rays. The importance of choosing the right preservative in function of the wood essence and the destiny of the artefact is fundamental for a long lasting application and a guaranteed cycle.
They are divided into two main categories:

  • Preservative primer
  • Preservatives all in one

These can be furtherly divided into:

  • Conifers preservative
  • Hardwood preservative 
The colours available are numerous and are summarized in the preservative stain colour chart. This colour chart consistis of 16 colours, 3 pigmented topcoats and one metallized effect.

Base Coats

The basecoats for exterior are developed for the right balance between aesthetic and functionality. They have to be applied between the preservative and the finishing paint.
They have an excellent filling power and better sanding properties than the finishing topcoat.
The products contain specific substances developed to block the wood extractives (tannins, oils and resins).
They are available in two versions: transparent, enriched with UV filters and antifungal additives capable of increasing the weathering resistance, or pigmented.
They are also available with low viscosity or high thixotropy, for an easier vertical application.
The following series are available:

  • Transparent base coat for dip
  • Transparent base coat tixo mono/bi-component
  • White base coat for dip
