Superior Coating Performance
Accoya® wood’s outstanding dimensional stability primarily contributes to its superior coatings performance. Thus any major coating systems can be applied on Accoya® with significantly improved performance.
Dimensional Stability & Coatings
Less swelling and shrinkage (by 70%-80%) of Accoya® wood, better coating adherence to its more stable surface. Dimensionally stable wood improves coatings life as paints and other film-forming coatings are not subjected to severe stretch and shrink cycles. The final result is decreased maintenance frequency, causing to:
- Less time to maintain the wood
- Less money spent on coatings
- Less coating used during the overall service life of the wood
- Less impact on the environment
Accoya® works well with all known coatings systems. Extensive testing with positive results has been performed with opaque hybrid, opaque acrylic and transparent alkyd emulsions coating systems.
Accoya® should be specified in conjunction with the large number of companies manufacturing cladding, decking and joinery using Accoya® wood.
