- Cetol HLS plus (2010)
- Standard Acotint SB translucent
- Description Translucent, solvent borne alkyd – emulsion based, low build satin basecoat and wood stain for exterior use.
Main properties / U.S.P.’s Resists UV-light, surface mould and algae, peeling and cracking; The wood grain remains visible and beautifies the wood species; Micro porous, giving a moisture control system; Ensures protection of timber; Optimum coloring effect; Simple maintenance; VOC 2010 compliant.
Use As a primer and one – pot system in translucent systems for dimension stable constructions made from new softwood, hardwood, plywood, block board and particle board, such as claddings, fascias, architraves, timber frames, fences and sheds. Its properties make Cetol HLS plus eminently suitable for application to softwood.

- Outdoor durability Approximately 2 years for a 3-coat Cetol HLS plus system.
The lighter colors of translucent products are slightly less outdoor durable. This is why the low pigmented colors of Cetol HLS plus are based on Base TU, reinforced with UV absorber and HALS. This will result in approximate comparable durability with the other translucent colors of the product. Durability greatly depends on location, elevation and by the quality of wood, design, construction, glazing, condition of interior paint – work, method of application adopted, etc.
Timber moisture content
- Moisture content of timber to be coated should not exceed 16%
- New woodwork
- Where necessary, apply a single coat of Cetol Aktiva or Cetol BL Aktivaon new softwood timber that requires extra substrate protection against fungal attack
- Apply a priming coat of Cetol HLS plus for hardwood or softwood in selected color.
- Where necessary, repair with Componex WR Flex
- Apply 2 finishing coats of Cetol HLS plus.
- For best results, it is necessary to keep the interval between applications of these coats limited, not exceeding 1 month.
Depending on the condition of the finish, clean, degrease and sand thoroughly. Repair defects with Cetol HLS plus in the appropriate color and apply one full coat of Cetol HLS plus, overall. Transparency Maintain the translucent appearance of Cetol HLS plus over a longer period. It is recommended to use Cetol Clearcoat LB or alternatively use lighter colors, 077 or 006 for maintenance applications. Notes: Covering of horizontal surfaces.
During construction, it is recommended to cover horizontal surfaces with plastic or aluminum foil to prevent dirt pick-up by mortar and cement.
- Application conditions Temperature between : 5 – 30°C
- Relative humidity maximum : 85%
Ready for use after thorough stirring
Thinner : Do not thin
Percentage thinner : —
Viscosity : Ready for use Cleaning of equipment Clean the brushes and equipment immediately after use with White Spirit Advised layer thickness At 20°C/65% RH
Dry : Approx. 10 microns per coat
Wet : Approx. 36 microns
A Cetol HLS plus system should have a minimum dry film thickness of 20 microns. The first layer strongly penetrates into the wood, securing adhesion, but hardly adding to the total dry film thickness. Theoretical coverage
Dry layer thickness 10 microns, approx. 11–14m²/Liter. Practical coverage
Dry layer thickness 10 microns, approx. 10–14m²/Liter. Coverage greatly depends on the wood species under treatment, the surface condition, the method of application and conditions during application. On rough sawn timber the coverage is significantly lower (e.g. 7-10 m2/L).
