Online PR News – 13-July-2012 – UK – Aesthetically pleasing, lightweight, and easy and quick to install, timber cladding is used extensively by specifiers, to protect and enhance the appearance of a property’s outer walls, in a practical, cost effective and sustainable manner.
Whether the cladding is made of hardwood, softwood or modified timber, the implementation of an appropriate maintenance and redecoration schedule using time-proven, decorative and protective coatings is the key to maximising its performance in all weathers and retaining the natural attractive appearance of the wood over the long term.
The premium woodcare brand Sadolin offers specifiers and the maintenance team an extensive range of woodcare products to protect and decorate exterior timber cladding, with solvent borne and waterborne options and a full range of finishes available.
Now, these off-the-shelf solutions, which all provide microporous protection that allows the wood to ‘breathe’, are explored in a new and informative video, ‘A Protective Overcoat for Cladding’, available to view at Sadolin’s YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/sadolinwoodcare
Presented by Sadolin Technical Consultant Sean Thompson, this is the sixth in a series of seven videos produced under the ‘This Is Sadolin’ series, to help Sadolin’s professional customers in all sectors of the market to specify and apply woodcare products effectively and deliver the very best results, whatever type of project they are working on.
The video starts by looking at the solvent borne woodcare range and reveals the versatility of Sadolin Classic, one of the most well established products in the Sadolin portfolio.
Used alone it delivers colour and a flat matt finish to wood, allowing the natural grain to show through, with up to four years’ weather protection. Used as basecoat with two coats of Sadolin Extra or with Sadolin Clearcoat, the translucency can be maintained and a higher sheen finish can be achieved whilst the redecoration schedule is extended further still.
The video then looks at Sadolin’s water borne range, starting with Quick Drying Woodstain, which will provide up to six years’ of protection.
When quick and easy maintenance is a priority, Sadolin Advanced Onecoat offers an ideal solution – a single coat is all that is required. This woodstain delivers a translucent finish and long-lasting colour, and also disguises imperfections and flaws in the substrates.
Completing the line-up of Sadolin products suitable for use on cladding are two very different types of woodcare system. For a rich opaque finish that will flex with wood and resist peeling and flaking, no matter how extreme the weather conditions and fluctuations in temperature, Sadolin Superdec is an alternative to traditional gloss paint that will give up to eight years’ protection.
At the other end of the spectrum is the Sadolin Ultra Highly Translucent Woodstain system, which shows off all the natural beauty of wood thanks to the exceptionally fine iron oxide pigments in the advanced formulation and the elimination of all pigments from the basecoat. Ultra’s UV light absorbers prevent radiation damage and fading, and when used as recommended on new wood or as a maintenance solution, this premium translucent system can deliver up to seven years’ protection.
