Permanent penetrating wood undercoating.
Dramatically improves topcoat performance for timbers, dimensional laminated lumber and engineered wood, while also protecting wood during construction. KP-12 is an outstanding penetrating protective undercoat for timbers, dimensional laminated lumber and engineered wood components like CLT that enhances dimensional stability and protects wood from UV degradation and moisture absorption. Using KP-12 dramatically improves topcoat performance, while also protecting wood during the manufacturing and construction process and reducing in situ preparation and top coat application costs. Because KP-12 is near-invisible, it is ideal for projects where beautiful clear or light wood tones are desired.
KP-12 is aqueous, low-VOC and available in a range of formulas to reduce swelling, wood rot, moisture absorption and protect against UV degradation.
KP-12: recommended as a base coat to protect timbers and engineered lumber against wood rot.
KP-12W: provides enhanced water repellence and excellent hold-out against water absorption that conforms to ASTM 4446. Protects timbers and engineered lumber against wood rot; protects end grain and exposed wood joinery and surfaces that are exposed to weathering and moisture.
KP-12UV: provides long term UV protection; ideal for timbers and engineered lumber where a clear or light wood finish is desired. Protects wood against wood rot and weathering during construction.
KP-12UVW: combines long-term UV protection with enhanced water repellence and excellent hold-out against water absorption for timbers and engineered lumber. Conforms to ASTM 4446. Protects wood against wood rot and weathering during construction.
The protection you need – the color you want.
Sansin KP-12 water-borne alkyd formulas are designed to penetrate wood and provide dimensional stabilization, providing effective water hold-out and allowing the wood to breathe. In addition, KP-12 prevents wood discoloration, decay and UV degradation. And depending on the requirements of your project, KP-12 can be formulated either to remain neutral or to enhance wood tones or color. Consult your Sansin technical representative to determine which formula meets your needs best.
