Leegwater selects Sansin’s SDF finish
The characteristics of the façade are a coarse masonry substructure and a differentiated superstructure. The use of two different materials represent the formal nature of the clinic’s work and the informal nature of its setting in the forest.
Leegwater, a distributor of sustainable wood and wood products, has been an avid user of Sansin products for more than 18 years, and recommended Sansin for the clinic. Sansin’s low VOC Enviro Stain, SDF Precision Coat, is highly water-repellent and a natural choice for homes and structures in moisture-rich environments. Not only does SDF Precision Coat protect the outside of the wood, it also protects the inside by allowing the wood to “breathe” helping to prevent moisture from getting trapped in the wood.
SDF Precision Coat enhances Accoya
In addition to protecting the clinic’s stunning wood exterior, Sansin stain enhances the warm, natural beauty of the Radiata Pine treated siding. Radiata Pine, sourced from a variety of locations, typically in New Zealand, is a species mainly used to produce Accoya.
Rated by siding manufacturers as one of the best natural finishes available, SDF Precision Coat penetrates into the Accoya wood, providing outstanding weather and UV protection in a wide range of natural, semi-transparent and even solid colors. Its water-borne technology provides complete protection of Accoya.
