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.
All five SILVACLAD colours are fully opaque, so they offer maximum protection against UV and thus much longer intervals between maintenance (than clear or semi-transparent finishes).
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.
Please note that though the boards are coated and protected on all sides, the back of the boards will not be coated to the same visual standard as the face. Marks caused from contact with the drying rack and other irregularities may be visible on the rear of the boards. This will have no negative impact on the performance of the cladding; however, it may be visually undesirable if it is intended for use in applications where it may be visible on both sides e.g. fences / screens.
