The combination of various natural vegetable oils (and waxes) ensure deep penetration into the wood surface resulting in

A long durability of the finish

 

  • High moisture resistance of the finish

  • Special binders make the finish elastic (adjusting to the movement of the wood), at the same time having a high surface hardness

  • All solvents used by SAICOS are disaromatized white spirit (benzolefree and consequently low odour and odourless when dry), they conform with the purity demands of the European pharmacopoeia

  • No cracking, flaking, peeling or blistering of the finish, therefore easy renovation without prior sanding of the surface

  • High coverage - very good yield (= low price per sqm = very economical finish – saves working time)

  • Comparatively fast drying, compared with other oil based paints

  • Quick and easy to apply

  • No primer, both applications from the same pot

  • Professional users: all SAICOS products are sprayable

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Unprotected wood, exposed to sun and rain,

will in the course of time change its structure and colour
 

  • Sunlight (UV rays) will often lead to an uneven brownish or greyish discolouration of the wood surfaces. Lignin and other substances of the wood surface will be destroyed and decomposed.

  • Rain will wash out the decomposed substances of the lignin, and silver-gray cellulose fibres will be left on the surface:

  • Dirt and micro-organisms will additionally reinforce the graying process of the surface as they will find good growing conditions on the growth promoting rougher wood surface.

  • Changing degrees of humidity (moisture content) of the wood will cause cracking of the wood surface
