Basis for the best protection: high-quality impregnation and waterproof primer
Wood as a building material has to be protected against the continuous effect of moisture so that problems don't crop up. The construction is primarily responsible for this. Should moisture ever penetrate the unit, our impregnations and impregnating primers offer reliable protection and therefore prevent bluing and discolouration.
Sikkens Wood Coatings impregnations
Our impregnations offer you the greatest level of safety and improve the 'natural durability' of all softwoods and leaf woods. In the impregnation of individual parts, increased protection of bluing and rotting is achieved, particularly in the corner joint area (tongue-and-groove).
Sikkens Wood Coatings waterproof primers
Thanks to an innovative concept, you can benefit from two advantages at once. Wood protection and priming function are achieved in just one step with our 2-in-1 product.
This means: minimum effort, maximum profit. Up to 50% of your material costs and 25% of your processing time can be saved by using our impregnating base coat. The recommended application amount is a practical 120–160 g/m2 for sapwood.
The wood is specially protected using our phase transfer technology developed in-house with our impregnating base coat as the ingredients are transported especially deeply into the wood. Thus the wood receives the necessary protection against blue stains and rotting fungi.
Phase transfer technology in Sikkens Wood Coatings impregnating base coats
The phase-transfer additive causes the fungicide to penetrate from the watery phase (impregnating primer) into the solid phase (wood). There they take effect, all the way deep down into the wood.
