Thermally treated pine cladding

Thermopine®

Thermopine® is a timber with enhanced stability and durability, produced by thermally modifying Scandinavian grown Scots Pine using only heat, steam and pressure. Less substrate movement means a paint coating can last up to three times longer than when applied to non-modified timbers, substantially reducing the maintenance requirement and in turn, the lifetime cost of the product. The advanced, highly controlled modification process results in a reduction of the wood’s tendency to shrink and swell whilst reducing its vulnerability to wood destroying organisms.

At a glance

Species

Scots Pine

Origin

Northern Scandinavia

Modified timber

Yes. Scots Pine is modified using only heat, steam and pressure. No chemicals or hazardous substances are used.

Grade

Heartwood of Scandinavian Scots Pine, thermally modified to create a dimensionally stable timber free from resin. Re-graded in-house to our own exacting standards.

Weathering

Uncoated boards have a uniform chocolate-brown colour which will quickly weather to grey, however due to its superior coating performance, boards are most commonly supplied painted.

Sustainability

Sustainably sourced from well managed forests. PEFC certified.

SiOO:X coating

Can be factory coated in SiOO:X original or pigmented versions, to achieve a weathered look at an accelerated rate.

Durability

Exceptional durability (Class 2 - 3 BS EN 350-2) due to thermal modification.

Paint coating

Ideal substrate for factory coating. Commonly painted black, or choose from Russwood’s Standard Colour Guide for more options.

Appearance

Prominent figuring with an abundance of structurally sound live round and splay knots, some of which display cracks and chipped-off edges after machining. An occasional dead knot cannot be ruled out.

Density

Low - classified by BS EN 350-2 as approximately 450 Kg/m³ at a moisture content of approximately 6-8%.

Fire retardant coating

Can be treated with fire retardant.

Application

Suits a variety of project types. Ideal for factory coating due to enhanced dimensional stability.

Stability

Thermal treatment results in substantially reduced swelling and shrinking of the timber, reducing dimensional movement by up to 50% making Thermopine® a very stable timber.

Surface finishes

Can be produced in a planed or wire brushed finish.

Expert view

Very few timber cladding products can compete with Thermopine® on its performance characteristics. Thanks to the thermal treatment, Thermopine® boasts excellent dimensional stability, enhanced durability and absence of resin pockets. It’s the ultimate timber substrate for low maintenance factory-coated Teknos paint finish in dark colours.
