Thermally treated pine cladding


Thermopine® is a timber with enhanced stability and durability, produced by thermally modifying Scandinavian grown Scots Pine using only heat and steam. 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.

Scots Pine


Northern Scandinavia

Modified timber

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


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.


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


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.


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


Ideal substrate for factory coating. Commonly painted black, or choose from Russwood’s Standard Colour Guide for more options, it is also suitable also for coating with Woca oil.


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.


Low - classified by BS EN 350-2 as approximately 420 Kg/m³ at a moisture content of approximately 6-8%.

Fire retardant coating

Can be treated with fire retardant.


Suits a variety of project types. Ideal for factory coating due to enhanced dimensional 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, wire-brushed or Microtex® finish.
