GREENBUILD 2011: Ready-to-Use Wood Primer Unveiled
The Sansin Corp. announced a ready-to-use formulation of Foundation, a water-borne primer for both interior and exterior wood surfaces.
Architects and homeowners often decide against light or natural tones for an exterior wood finish because they traditionally do not provide as much protection against UV rays as darker finishes.
The primer, which applies invisibly, creates UV protection deep within the wood, allowing for the lightest of finishes to bring out the natural beauty and distinctiveness of wood while maintaining clarity.
Foundation is a low VOC base coat that applies easily and evenly, and protects the wood for up to one year, simply needing only a wash with soap and water before finishing. It can be used on the most popular wood species including fir, pine, spruce and cedar. BD+C
