Saves on time and money.
Protecting timber panelling from exposure to the weather and wind at an early stage will extend its service life. A simple and cost-effective way is to use undercoated or primed panelling.
The outermost cells of an untreated timber surface are quickly broken down by the sun's UV rays, weather, wind, algae and mould spores. If you do not paint a timber surface until the cells on the surface have started to break down, adhesion of the paint will be much weaker than on a completely new surface. If spores have also attached themselves to the timber surface, the risk of microbial growth increases.
The industrial priming of panelling has a number of advantages. Between planing and painting, the timber is dry-stored away from direct sunlight. Derome's timber panelling is primed in premises where conditions, such as moisture levels, temperature and application quantities, are carefully controlled. An 80-100 µm thick layer of dry film is applied to the sawn surface.
The panelling is primed and undercoated in the factory and, for best protection, is finished off with an overcoat paint of your choice. Undercoated panelling can be left up to five years before overpainting with an overcoat paint. For best results, apply the overcoat paint by spray or brush.
Derome's range of painted panelling consists of approximately 80 items. The range includes finely sawn cladding boards with grooved edges in widths of 45-195 mm, as well as panelling and battens with different seaming and profiles. Our products are dry-stored with other timber products at our central storage facility.
Maintaining a wide range in stock is the key to fast and cost-effective deliveries. Timber products from our sawmills are distributed from the Derome Group's central storage facility to customers on the Swedish market.
Undercoated panelling is included in our custom products range, as well as acrylic primed panelling in colours other than white.
You can be absolutely confident in your decision to use Derome's painted products. The prerequisite for good durability and a long service life is a combination of good timber, primer, undercoat, overcoat and proper maintenance. Expected maintenance interval: Ultra Pro 30 (two coats in the factory) + painting in situ with recommended overcoat results in a service life of 15 years. This applies provided that recommended overcoat paints are used for the final finish and that the painting instructions have been followed.
