WOODEX® - PROTECTION FOR WOOD

Painting protects wooden surfaces from the weather and reduces the life caused by the moisture variation of the wood and prolongs the life of the wood structure. The WOODEX® series covers a range of durable, water-borne solutions providing translucent coatings for all wooden surfaces outdoors. The series includes suitable products for protecting and finishing all exterior wood surfaces — houses, cottages, log villas, jetties, terraces, fences, and garden furniture.

COATING WOODEN FACADES

For untreated wood it is important to prime the surface first with wood preservative. Wood preservatives absorb into the wood and give effective protection against mould, rot and blue stain. With WOODEX AQUA CLASSIC you will get protection against weather stress and against UV-radiation as well as achieve the desired colour from Translucent colours 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 suns UV radiation. The wooden terrace lasts longer and looks representative when it is regularly maintaned with wood oil. Wood oil prevents the moisture 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.

CHOOSE THE COLOUR

As tinted wood stain gives protection against UV radiation. If there is no pigment, suns 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, soft wood needs to be sanded out untill solid wood appears.
