Symphony Coatings, the UK’s premier independent supplier of professional and technically advanced wood finishes and metal coatings, has been chosen by impra® to be their exclusive partner for the professional impra®lan range.

impra® is the German brand of high quality surface coating systems and timber impregnation protection from RÜTGERS Organics GmbH. Established over 140 years ago they have become market leaders through continual research and innovation. impra®lan is their professional range of water based coatings for external timber.

Manfred Oberreiter, impra® European Sales Director, said, "Following our great success with the range in Germany and Europe we are very pleased to be in partnership with Symphony Coatings to supply our impra®lan range in the UK.

impra®lan – the professional industrial surface coating system for timber

The impra®lan range is a water based system for industrial surface coating of timber designed to give a long lasting and attractive finish, whatever the species, colour or application method. The impra®lan range is able to offer high protection against UV damage and wood rot, providing a higher quality finish over a longer lifetime. Symphony Coatings rapid colour matching service is available across the UK, meaning you can get any colour your project requires, from internationally recognized colour standards to a bespoke colour match.

impra®’s Translucent systems accentuate the woods properties whilst giving it an attractive natural look and protection from the elements. Where this finish is required we recommend the impra®lan-Grund G100 Primer and impra®lan-Lasur S100 Topcoat systems. Excellent results have been achieved with the impra® translucent system and their range has been certified in accordance with DIN EN 927-2 guidelines.


impra®lan-Grund G100 transparent wood stain enhances the natural grain of timber. The stain can deluged by dipping or spraying and is tintable to nearly any colour required. G100 doesn’t contain biocides and protects against mould and algae. It’s low grain raising, provides excellent adhesion and is suitable for dimensionally stable and unstable wooden elements such as windows and exterior cladding. The film is moisture regulating, breathable, dries evenly and is weather resistant soon after application.

impra®lan-Lasur S100 is the high solids, transparent, water-based, film-forming intermediate and top coat. It has a very high level of transparency and a silk gloss finish.

In woods rich in ingredients, impra®’s Opaque systems offer good protection against discolouration in conjunction with their isolating primers. Wood has to be protected against the non-stop effect of the elements so problems don’t arise. Should moisture ever penetrate, the isolating primer and intermediate coating impra®lan-Füller F350 offers a dependable protection against discolouration and wood extractives. Wood protection and priming are reached in one step saving you time and money!

Primers are the link between wooden surfaces and coating. impra®lan-Vorlack V100 is the white intermediate coat with very good isolating properties against soluble timber ingredients in a one-coat application. impra®lan-Vorlack V100 is ideal for hard and soft wood, doors and window frames.

The Opaque topcoats are particularly tough and give wooden windows and doors a significantly greater durability. impra®lan-Decklack D100 is the Top coat with extremely high covering properties and extended resistance to weathering. It’s highly elastic, block resistant and very good at covering edges. Symphony Coatings can tint to any colour you desire from RAL, NCS, Pantone and much more.
