... with TeknosIndustry products
Log Cabins Scotland, which builds bespoke log cabins, offices, studios, workshops and garden rooms, protect wooden buildings with TeknosIndustry products. The Teknos products are made to withstand extreme Scottish weather conditions. Keith Garry from Log Cabins Scotland used Teknoseal 4000, Teknofill 5001, Antistain Aqua 5210, Antistain Aqua 2901 and Aquatop 2600 on a recent project.
Keith and his team used the end grain sealer, Teknoseal 4000, on the sanded down wood of the log cabins. The aqueous product is designed to seal the end of grain on new wood in exterior settings which made it ideal for the log cabins. The acrylate filler, Teknofill 5001, was used to fill the knots of the wood. This product worked perfectly in conjunction with Antistain Aqua 5210, a knot inhibiting primer. The waterborne industrial primer is designed to reduce staining from knots and softwood and was used by Log Cabins Scotland on top of Teknofill 5001. To create a barrier effect against extreme weather and to minimise staining, two coats of Antistain Aqua 5201 primer were then applied to the wood and left to dry to reveal an antique white finish. The final Teknos product used on this project was the Aquatop 2600. Two coatings of the joinery topcoat were applied to the wood to create the finished look. Aquatop 2600 has a microporous protective film and is resistant to bacteria, mould and UV attack ensuring the log cabin remains strong and sturdy even in the harsh Scottish weather.
On this particular project, a fashionable, pale grey shade was used. However TeknosIndustry colour range also includes a variety of shades such as blues, reds, neutrals, darks, yellows and greens. Proving popular across the market, Teknos’ colour range remains on-trend offering shades that are loved by contractors and end-users.
