for normal to heavy stress
IRSA Aqua Cork, mat, is a highly elastic, ready-to-use polyurethane dispersion with high filling power and very good durability, especially developed for cork coverings. The swelling of some cork types is largely avoided with Aqua Kork Extra. This light-fast water-based varnish is also ideal for light-coloured cork.
The colouring can easily be carried out with IRSA Platinum 2C Öl-Grundierung (IRSA Platinum 2C Oil Primer).
IRSA Aqua Cork Extra, mat, is applied to the cork in 3 layers (per layer approx. 120g/m2). The total consumption of IRSA Aqua Cork Extra is about 360 g/m2. Interim sanding is usually carried out before the last top layer.
The final hardness is achieved after 5 days (at 20°C and 55% humidity).

Cork colouring with new IRSA colours of IRSA Platinum 2C Öl-Grundierung (IRSA Platinum 2C Oil Primer) and new Cork Water Varnish IRSA Aqua Cork, extra mat!
IRSA Platinum 2C Öl-Grundierung (IRSA Platinum 2C Oil Primer) is not only suitable for wood, but also for the coloured design of cork. IRSA Platinum 2C Öl-Grundierung (IRSA Platinum 2C Oil Primer) is a 2-component high-solid oil combination with natural oils, cross-linking and oxidative drying, by adding IRSA 2C Oil Hardener (mixing ratio 10:1).
IRSA Platinum 2C Öl-Grundierung (IRSA Platinum 2C Oil Primer) is available in the colours white, black, light grey, teak, anthracite, wenge, oak, mud, colourless. Brand new in the program are amber, wild green, porcelain blue, green-grey, cashmere white. And of course we also offer special tones on request.
The cork, which is very easily dyed with IRSA Platinum 2C Öl-Grundierung can then be over-sealed just as easily. Even large areas can be dyed quickly and easily.
The new IRSA Aqua Cork Extra, mat, but also the IRSA Platinum 2C Water-based Varnishes (IRSA Platinum 2C Water-based Varnish 3010, silky-mat, Platinum 2K Water-based Varnish 3030, ultra-mat) are perfectly suited for this purpose. These varnish systems are matched to the highest level of elasticity of the cork and do not only promise a long lifetime but also give visually attractive qualities.
And so the IRSA Platinum 2C Öl-Grundierung (IRSA Platinum 2C Oil Primer) and new cork water varnish IRSA Aqua Cork extra (mat) is applied as follows:
IRSA Platinum 2C Öl-Grundierung (IRSA Platinum 2C Oil Primer) is applied evenly to the substrate in cross-coats with IRSA Rapid Spatula (consumption: approx. 30 - 80g/m2 per application). The pot life is 2 hours! After 10 - 30 minutes, polish the excess completely and evenly into the cork with a white pad, allow to dry for at least 24 hours and the surface is ready for over-sealing!
Check that the oil is sufficiently dry before sealing. Rub the coloured cork surface with a paper towel. If no abrasion can be detected, then the surface is dry (it is best to use dark cloths for light surfaces and light cloths for dark surfaces).
The over-sealing is as usual: Apply 2-3 coats of 120g/m2 per coat with the new cork Water-Based IRSA Aqua Kork, extra (or with IRSA Platinum 2C Water-based Varnish 3010, silky-mat, Platinum 2C Water-based Varnish 3030, ultra-mat). If a layer has a drying time of more than 12 hours, interim sanding with a grain size of 150 must be carried out. The hardening time is about 5 days.
Care and maintenance for a long product life and optimized appearance: The subsequent care and maintenance after the hardening time of the overcoat is carried out with IRSA Aqua Star R9 (for mat surfaces), so that the beautiful mat surface remains mat for a long time. Please follow our IRSA Aqua Star R9 Care Instructions (for request or download see www.irsa.de/download).
