This means that the application film at the point where two coated surfaces meet cannot be separated without causing damage. We recommend our favorites for windows and doors, our anti-blocking SAICOS House & Garden Colour.

6: The colour result depends on a range of factors. Aside from the wood type and quality,
for example, the wood sanding is also important.
We recommend a trial application on the original wood, in order to get the most
precise idea possible of the later colour tone.
