Sansin Enviro Stains are fast becoming the world-wide choice for customers who demand the absolute best in performance and beauty for their homes.
Benefits of SDF Precision Coat
SDF Precision Coat is a tough, effective penetrating stain for wood cladding. It allows the texture of the wood surface to show through, giving it a more ‘natural’ look than traditional film-forming finishes which tend to look ‘plasticky’.
SDF Precision Coat has another major advantage over film-forming finishes. When the time comes to apply a maintenance coat, minimal preparation is required. Normally the surface simply requires cleaning before a single top-up coat is applied. Wood surfaces coated with a failed film-forming finish usually require stripping and sanding before a fresh coating can be applied.
This special surface texture has two benefits:
1. Wood scientists have proved that a textured surface will accept and retain finish significantly better than a smooth planed surface, thus improving the appearance and minimising future maintenance. The SAWTEX™ surface enables the coating to penetrate deep into the wood, rather than it just sitting on the surface as it would with a smooth surface. The result is deeper, richer and more consistent colour because more stain is in the wood and the overall level of penetration is more even.
2. The SAWTEX™ surface gives this cladding a beautiful natural appearance that makes the wood grain more visible and exudes a feeling of warmth, adding an extra layer to its appeal.
Western Red Cedar is synonymous with beauty and durability; however, it has a number of natural attributes that make it the ultimate outdoor wood.
