Il legno per esterni è un elemento vivo e come tale va trattato, protetto e mantenuto nel pieno rispetto dell’ambiente e dell’utilizzatore finale. L’azione degli agenti atmosferici, unita alle caratteristiche tipiche del legno da verniciare, possono causare difetti e compromettere la qualità e la durata dei prodotti applicati.
Waterborne impregnating agents
The impregnating agents are stains used to colour the wood intended for the exterior. Formulated with latest generation resins and pigments and enriched with UV absorbers, they colour the wood uniformly without hiding the distinctive features of the type of wood to be painted.
The impregnating agents belonging to the same series can be mixed together to match an infinity of customized shades to satisfy any creative spirit.
The impregnating agents of the IM30, IA35 and IC55 series must be applied on suitably sanded wood, with 150 paper grit, if it is hardwood, or 180 paper grit, if it is softwood.
Because the wood must be prepared for painting by removing all impurities, any stains and surface imperfections such as scratches or abrasions.
Waterborne clear topcoats
The topcoats are the last step of a painting of wooden windows and doors, which gives the coated element optimal aesthetic qualities and durability.
Formulated with latest generation resins and powered by highly shielding UV absorbers, they protect the window and door efficiently from the natural elements, preserving its beauty and functionality.
The topcoats of the IF4 series must be applied on wood treated with a tinted impregnating agent from the IM30 series or alternatively from the IA35 series.
Because the wood must be protected as much as possible from the attack of ultraviolet rays, which degrade the wood quickly if not properly protected, changing its natural colour.
Coloured enamels are an alternative to the clear topcoats of the IF4 series. They are also used as the last step of a painting of wooden windows and doors, personalize them and make them last over time.
Formulated with the latest generation of resins and pigments, they are reinforced with highly shielding UV absorbers that effectively protect the window or the door from the weather, preserving its beauty and functionality. The enamels of the IO15 and IL17 series can be mixed together to match infinite shades and personalized gloss levels, to satisfy any fantasy.
The enamels of the IO15 and IL17 series must be applied on wood treated with a colourless impregnating agent IM3000 or alternatively IA3500.
Because the wood must be prepared for painting and the presence of the impregnating agent allows the enamel to anchor properly to the wood, as well as allowing optimal uniformity of colour.
