Strathroy, Ontario, Canada – April 17, 2024 – The Sansin Corporation, a global leader in environmentally friendly, high-performance wood protection, is pleased to announce the completion of the first-ever Kappe Architects-designed home outside North America. The home is in Kleinmachnow, Germany, near Berlin. Sansin was the exclusive provider of interior and exterior wood protection and finishes for massive amount of wood on the structure.

The residence was designed by renowned Southern California firm Kappe Architects and features quintessential design elements made famous by founder Ray Kappe. The home utilizes redwood imported from California, Douglas Fir beams, Iroko molding and Red Oak flooring. All the wood inside and outside the residence is protected with a comprehensive system of Sansin’s high-performance, low-VOC finishes.

  • Precision Coat SDF (on the Iroko, Douglas Fir and Red Oak): Specially formulated for factory finishing with oils and resins that penetrate the wood, Precision Coat SDF provides outstanding weather and UV protection. It creates a monolithic bond with wood for long-term durability that won’t crack, peel or blister.
  • Precision Coat SDF Topcoat (on the Douglas Fir and Iroko): Highly resistant to wear, Precision Coat SDF Topcoat doesn’t discolor over time, and enhances the UV protection – and beauty – of Precision Coat SDF. Because of its high solids content, Precision Coat SDF Topcoat enhances the look of the base coat with beautiful, saturated color and a full, rich finish.
  • Precision Coat WoodForce (on the Redwood siding): This high-performing factory finish provides exceptional protection and won’t break down with exposure to sunlight, retaining its water-repellency and protecting against weathering and wood rot. Because it erodes gently over time, long-term maintenance is easy with a fresh coat of WoodForce, as needed.

“We selected Sansin initially for its experience working with redwood – that’s knowledge that is hard to find in Germany. But as we learned more about Sansin’s products, we knew we wanted to use them for all the wood on the house,” said Lars Triesch, homeowner. “Sansin’s consulting service was excellent. The company supported us in finding the right combination of products for the protection and aesthetic we were looking for.”

Sansin’s Managing Director Sjoerd Bos says this home is an excellent example of what Sansin excels at. “We have a lot of experience collaborating with architects, contractors and builders to recommend a complete wood protection system that protects the investment in wood and brings out the beauty of the wood grain without the harsh chemicals found in other finishes,” he said. “It’s a magnificent project, and we were proud to partner with Lars to bring this one-of-a-kind residence to life.”

Sansin’s architectural consulting program, Sansin IRIS, helps architects achieve coating quality and maintenance goals. Completed projects are then eligible for Sansin Care, which offers guidance to ensure projects are proactively maintained.

The Sansin Corporation Announces Its 2024 Color of the Year: Onyx

Strathroy, Ontario, Canada – November 7, 2023 – The Sansin Corporation, a global leader in environmentally friendly, high-performance wood protection, released Onyx as its 2024 Color of the Year. Onyx is a bold, primary or complementary color with an inky hue and powerful presence. Onyx is a unique dark tone that is offered in range of transparencies and Sansin exterior products, including SDF, Dec, and ENS. No matter the substrate used, Onyx performs boldly with every coat.

“Sansin is known for manufacturing finishes that are aesthetically pleasing, highly protective, and easy to maintain, but our real talent is doing all of that without covering up the beauty of the wood,” explains Sjoerd Bos, Sansin’s Managing Director. “Even the deep charcoal color of Onyx doesn’t sacrifice what we all love most about building with wood – the beauty, personality, and color impact of your specific wood type.”

Onyx is a confident and courageous choice for those who want to make a striking statement that never goes out of style. “The selection of Onyx as our 2024 Color of the Year reflects the rising trend for bolder color choices,” says Sabina Scott, Sansin’s Color Specialist. “With increased universal popularity in the US, Canada, and Europe, we project this dusky color will gain steam in the year ahead.”

Onyx is available for formulation in many of Sansin’s exterior products, including SDF, Dec, and ENS. Onyx can also be formulated for use in Sansin’s Precision Coat line, which is designed for use in a factory finish setting to achieve standardized production quality and cost efficiencies. Not only do Sansin’s exterior products protect the outside of the wood, they also prevent rot and decay by allowing the wood to “breathe,” which helps avoid moisture from getting trapped in the wood. Like all of Sansin’s products, these formulas have low toxicity and are low in VOCs.

“Onyx pairs well with most of the other colors in Sansin’s line – from transparent finishes to a collection of solid hide colors,” notes Bos. “Chesapeake, Driftwood, Pickled White, Crimson, Aztec, and even Clear are a few of our favorite tones that perfectly complement Onyx.”

McPhillips Street Paint in North Winnipeg Offers Sansin’s Low-VOC, High-Performance Wood Finishes to Manitobans

Strathroy, Ontario, Canada – September 7, 2022 – The Sansin Corporation, a global leader in environmentally friendly, high-performance wood protection, has welcomed another store to its dealer network – McPhillips Street Paint. Located at 2401 McPhillips St., Building 7 in Winnipeg, the store has started carrying the full line of Sansin’s interior and exterior low-VOC wood finishes.

Kenneth Tough, Outside Sales Representative at McPhillips Street Paint, had previously worked with Sansin products and lobbied for McPhillips’ management to bring in Sansin when he started working at the store. “Our clients expect us to have the highest-quality paint and finishes in the industry, and Sansin’s water-borne technology is simply the best in class,” said Tough. “For our area, the biggest problem is traditional oil finishes that start peeling within a year, but since Sansin penetrates into the wood it doesn’t chip or peel, which makes it much more durable and easier to maintain.”

Tough said that McPhillips is conveniently located for homeowners and contractors in North Winnipeg and also for cottage owners in outlying areas of northern Manitoba. “People come in on their way up to their cottages and ask for water-borne stain, and it just makes sense to take care of that market with a premium product like Sansin,” Tough added. 

McPhillips Street Paint offers Sansin’s full line of exterior (SDF, DEC, ENS, Classic 1-2-3) and interior (Purity Stain, Purity Glacier, Purity Clear, and Purity Floor) finishes in a range of rich color options.

“We’re pleased to see that our reputation and Ken’s confidence in our products led to this collaboration,” said Caroline March-Long, Sansin’s Director of Sales & Marketing. “McPhillips’ customers expect only the best service and products, and Sansin delivers with wood finishes that offer superior wood protection that is durable, beautiful and easy to maintain.”
