Design Pine is a range of structural and decorative timber products coated with a genuine primer. Impregnated with a preservative to prevent the onset of decay and resist insect attack in all above ground applications, Design Pine is a finger jointed and or laminated for increased dimensional stability to give a reliable product for years to come.
Prior to priming, Design Pine is impregnated with an organic preservation system (H3) which increases its durability for all above ground exterior applications. The preservative is designed to prevent the onset of rot and decay as well as protect the timber from insect attack.
- What colour paint should I select?
Timber is a natural material; which is affected by temperature and moisture. Therefore the selection of correct top coat colour is essential for the long term performance on the Design Pine product and the paint system. Light colours with a light reflective value (LRV) of >30 are recommended as dark colours absorb light and heat.
- Does my timber need to be re-treated if I cut it?
Yes, all Treated Timbers MUST BE re-treated to ensure longevity of your timber. At Master Woodturning we recommend that you use an Enseal Clear to bring your timber back to a treated level.
- How should I store my Design Pine?
Design Pine should be kept as dry as possible in a covered, well ventilated area.
