Thermopine® Cladding

Thermopine® Cladding

Russwood's Thermopine® is suitable for use on a wide-range of projects, often utilised to create both modern and natural looking facades. In its sawn state, Russwood's Thermopine® has a uniform chocolate-brown colour tone which will quickly weather to grey if left uncoated, however due to the superior coating performance over species such as Larch, boards are most commonly supplied pre-treated using our Teknos® factory coating system with black being the most popular colour choice.

The appearance after factory coating is largely determined by which surface finish is opted for. When coated in a translucent Teknos® coating the knots and figuring become attractive features, particularly when a brushed surface is opted for. In contrast, an opaque Teknos® RAL coating will largely disguise the knots and figuring to create a more plain vernacular.

Sawn from slow grown, small diameter logs, Thermopine® boards display attractive, tight grain figuring with an abundance of live (structurally sound) round and splay knots, some of which may display small cracks or chipped off edges after machining.
