Surface treatment of thermally modified wood
Thermally modified wood is suitable for window-joinery, doors, garden furniture and terraces. A thermally modifi ed wood surface should always be given a high quality protective coating to preserve its beautiful colour and prevent surface cracking caused by weathering. In interiors, the dimensional stability of thermally modified wood makes it excellent for ceilings, fittings and furniture; treated surfaces are easier to keep clean.
Tikkurila has developed wood fi nishes together with the producers of thermally modified wood to achieve best performance. The warm colour of thermally modified wood is retained when the surface is treated with a wood finish/oil tinted to match the original colour. For this purpose Tikkurila has developed a specific colour (TVT 318R). We recommend making a test application.
