A Fantastic Finish from Dulux

With it’s aesthetic appeal, timber remains a key material used in creating outdoor entertaining areas. Whether it is being used for decking, furniture, screening or a feature wall, the natural beauty and character of timber creates a relaxing and inviting atmosphere, perfect for the outdoor room.

Having created your outdoor entertaining area, the next step is to extend the life of your timber by protecting it with a high performance timber finish. All timber, including treated pine, will weather if not protected from the elements. Transparent and semi-transparent timber finishes heighten the beauty of timber and maintain the natural characteristics of the grain while minimising environmental damage that can appear over time, such as splitting, rotting and colour loss.

Intergrain UltraDeck is a high-performance, water-based finish for outdoor timber decking and all exterior timber that delivers an exceptionally durable, long-lasting finish. UltraDeck enhances the characteristics of the timber grain and weathers naturally without cracking, blistering or peeling.

If transformation in timber colour is required, Intergrain NaturalStain is recommended. NaturalStain is a semi-transparent water-based stain with outstanding durability and is ideal for lighter timbers such as treated pine.

UltraDeck and NaturalStain significantly outperform conventional decking oils and stains in durability and resistance to UV. Unlike traditional oil-based exterior timber finishes, UltraDeck and NaturalStain have extremely low odour, are easy to wash-up in water and are fast drying, allowing two coats to be applied in one day.

Intergrain products are designed for the demands of architects and landscape designers. The Intergrain range is a favourite among professionals and homeowners due to its attractive finishes that give long-lasting performance.

Another deciding factor that makes Intergrain a popular choice for residential and commercial applications is its environmental features. Traditional timber finishes contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs). These VOCs are greenhouse gas carbon emissions that evaporate into the atmosphere as the coating dries. These compounds are usually petrochemical solvents that are characterised by strong chemical fumes that contribute to air pollution. Intergrain’s water-based products emit substantially less VOCs, meaning that they are the environmentally responsible option that never compromises on performance.

A range of 250 ml sample pots is available. These handy pre-tinted pots are ideal for testing out a look before completing an entire deck or exterior timber job. They show what the final colour will be like on unique timber species, and are a cheap and effective way of ensuring colour satisfaction. 

Intergrain products have been designed to protect the natural beauty of timber and are recognised as New Zealand’s premium high-performance, environmentally responsible timber finishes. All Integrain products are supported by a full backup service of technical assistance and advice provided by trained timber finish consultants.
