Introduction & Use:

Distributed by PEA (Kenya) Ltd

Robustness and endurance have always been the main concern of the main concern of exterior wood coatings. With  this waterborne for exterior, the life of coated wood has substatially increased.

This product is designed for the protection from the sun radiation and for the reduction of water absorption, as well as the protection against fungi and mould.

Waterborne coating will maintain its elasticity for a long period of time, allowing the coated film to follow the wood movement without cracking.

Our product an eco-friendly one with negligible VOC emission, and it is a none flamable product that can be thinned with water. It is also suitable for all inside and outside timber used in: (wood houses, matchboards, under roof coatings, window/door, frames, shutters, fences, gates etc.) made of coniferous timber or timber without tannis or inhibitors as these could compromise flow leveling, color uniformity and damage the appearance of handcrafts.

Joinery Design

The edges must be rounded rather than angled at 45 degrees, the profiles must be inclined at 15 degrees, and the technical solution must be devised to minimize wood movement, water stagnation and absorption and joints or horizontal components.
