There are two basic types of wood finishes;
- Penetrating Oil-based finishes which penetrate the woods surface and do not form a hard film.
- Film finishes which create a coating on the surface of the wood and can be built up into layers like a varnish or lacquer.
Our preferred coating products include;
Sikkens Timber Coating
Sikkens is manufactured by AzkoNobel—an international producer of paint products.
Developed in response to high demand for a transparent and quality coating system to protect wood products while still allowing their natural beauty to be seen.
The result is a coating that meets the needs of manufacturers, architects, builders and tradespeople.
Intergrain Timber Coating
Intergrain products have been designed to protect the natural beauty of timber. They are recognized in Australia as being a quality product and to be an environmentally responsible timber finish.
Water based timber finishes have a very low solvent level. Using water based timber finishes is a far more environmentally responsible option than using a solvent-based equivalent.
Combined with being healthier to use, Intergrain water based timber finishes are much gentler on the environment.
Intergrain continually develop coatings that redefine performance expectations. All products are tested on timber species used in Australia at three registered testing sites across the country.
Cutek Timber Coating
An oil-based wood protection system that penetrates deeply into the timber where it works to control moisture from within.
Cutek oils do not peel off or crack, and impart exceptional dimensional stability to the timber. Cutek enhances the natural beauty of timber without obscuring the grain while being safe and easy to apply.
- Can be used on any species of timber
- A clear coating can allows the timber to grey off but remain nourished and stable
- Provides a very natural look and won’t hide the timber grain
