Untreated timber cladding will naturally weather over time, developing a silver or grey hue. While this can be a beautiful aesthetic, it is not always desired. At Russwood, we offer a range of coated timber cladding options to give you the flexibility to choose the finish that best suits your project vision and preferences. Read on to find out more about our SiOO:X, Woca Oil and Teknos paint systems.
SiOO:X – a weathered look without the wait
SiOO:X is a unique silicate-based surface modification treatment that virtually eliminates differential weathering, meaning you can achieve a consistently weathered look without the wait. Available in Light Grey and Mid Grey pigmented versions for a more immediate colour, or a clear Original option. SiOO:X is best suited for use with Scotlarch®, Thermopine®, Abodo® and Grandis Select® cladding.
Oil – translucent colour that highlights the natural beauty of the timber
Our Woca oil system is an advanced water-based protective sealer specifically designed to protect and beautify timber cladding. Works best on modified timbers such as Abodo® and Thermopine®. Choose from translucent oils in a contemporary Black or traditional Teak which highlights the natural beauty of the timber.
Fire retardant – where improved reaction to fire performance is required
While timber elements may not always require fire treatment, certain situations demand improved fire performance. Russwood’s preferred solution is Burnblock® fire retardant. Burnblock stands out for its non-toxic composition, comprising 100% natural ingredients, and holds a GOLD-level Cradle-to-Cradle Certificationᵀᴹ, setting it apart in the market.
Whatever your design objective, our team of cladding experts can advise you on the most suitable choice of coating system for your project, taking into account your species choice, aesthetic preferences, and maintenance requirements. We can also provide guidance on how to best maintain your coated timber cladding to ensure it remains looking its best for many years to come.
