COATING FOR WOODEN FACADES

For untreated wood, it is important to prime the surface first with wood preservatives. Wood preservatives absorb into the wood and give effective protection against mould, rot and blue stain. With WOODEX AQUA CLASSIC and WOODEX PREMIUM, you will get protection against weather stress and against UV-radiation as well as achieve the desired colour from Translucent colours -colour card.

Any translucent finishes that are used outdoors should be tinted. The pigment (that is, the colour particles) stops the UV radiation that attempts to break down the wood's surface cells and the lignin that binds them together. The more colour particles there are the slower the wood's surface ages. In other words, the stronger and more opaque a wood stain's colour is, the better the protection it offers from the sun. A completely colourless wood stain or varnish does not provide any kind of UV protection, and the treated surface will therefore grey as fast as an untreated surface.

TERRACES, JETTIES AND GARDEN FURNITURE

The outdoor decking is constantly exposed to high stress. It is walked on, it gets wet, freezes and is exposed to the sun's UV radiation. The wooden terrace lasts longer and looks representative when it is regularly maintained with wood oil. Wood oil prevents moisture from absorbing into the wood, keeping the wood from cracking. Wood oils can also be tinted to Translucent colours. As tinted, wood oils give better protection against UV radiation.

WOODEX® AQUA WOOD OIL

A water-borne wood oil with good absorption properties. Gives durable protection against humidity, dirt, and the sun's UV rays when tinted.

WOODEX®  BIOLEUM

A bio-based, waterborne wood oil for deckings and garden furniture. 60% of the total carbon content is bio-based. Due to the high content of solids, one thin coat is enough.

What to pay attention to when choosing transparent colours

A tinted wood stain gives protection against UV radiation. If there is no pigment, the sun's UV radiation turns the wood grey over the years. The natural grey colour might be something highly desired, but when maintenance painting all the grey, softwood needs to be sanded out until solid wood appears. Choose the colour from the Translucent colours card.

1. SURFACE

Colour, texture and different types of wood influence the final result. Planed wood appears lighter in colour than sawn wood. If the wood has darkened or yellowed over the years, lighter colours may look a little dirty due to the colour of the substrate.

2. NUMBER OF LAYERS

There is a clear difference between one or two layers. Lighter shades will appear lighter in the final result after the second application, while darker shades will appear darker.

3. PAINT QUANTITY

We all have our way of writing, even when it comes to painting. Test painting in the desired colour, in consultation with the designer and the painter, is always the best way to get the desired result.
