Description

Powdertech Wood Finish (PWF™) was formulated by Powdertech to match the natural variations in colour, grain density and grain pattern of wood. Some of the finishes also have texture. Wood has an instinctive appeal as a building material, associated with the natural world and its warmth and texture.


Features and benefits:

  • Combines the strength and longevity of metal with the look of natural wood.
  • No pattern repeat - no two coated pieces ever look exactly the same.
  • Can be applied to most metallic substrates including aluminium, galvanized steel, cast metals and stainless steel.
  • Good weather resistance and colour stability.
  • Conforms to Reaction to Fire classification A2,s1-d0
  • Low maintenance - unlike wood.
  • Adapts to curved surfaces such as columns and posts.
  • Can be cut and drilled for fabrication.
  • There are 35 standard colours in smooth or texture finishes.
  • PWF Roughwood introduces the textured feel of wood.
  • Applied worldwide since 2000.
  • Resistance to boiling water, no blistering and no loss of adhesion.
  • Cylindrical mandrel bending, tested to ISO 1519, 5 mm mandrel, no cracking or detachment.
