WOOD FACADES: NATURAL OR COATED?

A QUESTION OF AESTHETICS?

Greyed wood facades have a special charm. However, under certain circumstances it can take decades for a uniform silver-grey patina to develop, like those seen on mountain huts in the Alps. Untreated wood facades change their colour and surface structure depending on environmental influences. Determining when the effect may be achieved is difficult, as many factors have an influence on various building surfaces.

With KEIM Lignosil-Verano, a silicate-based surface treatment has been developed that simulates a naturally beautiful, silver-grey patinised wood appearance from the very first day. As a result of consciously leaving out the protective function which is usually desirable in coatings, the applied Lignosil-Verano coat increasingly changes to natural grey over the course of time.

OVERVIEW OF THE KEIM LIGNOSIL®-VERANO SYSTEM

KEIM Lignosil®-Verano

KEIM Lignosil-Verano is a silicate greying glaze for non-dimensionally stable and limited dimensionally stable wooden building components outside. It simulates a greyed, patinated surface like it occurs on natural wood after years of weathering. KEIM Lignosil-Verano is subject to a natural ageing process and equalises in this way the visual differences which can appear by uneven weathering of exposed and protected surfaces of uncoated wood.

Colour shade
12 Classic colour shades and 12 metallic colour shades available

Application
Brush, roller, airless, industrial application

Consumption
For one coat: approx.0.1 - 0.2 l/m² KEIM Lignosil-Verano

KEIM Lignosil®-Verano-DL/-DLM

KEIM Lignosil-Verano-DL is used for the desired degree of translucency of the silicate greying wood glaze KEIM Lignosil-Verano and enhances the beauty of the wood grain to shine through when using the classic colour shades (e.g. colour shade No. 4863). A higher transparency of the KEIM Lignosil-Verano metallic colour shades (e.g. colour shade No 4880M) is preferably achieved with KEIM Lignosil-Verano-DLM. Using KEIM Lignosil-Verano-DLM keeps the gloss pigment concentration constant, however, increases the silvery appearance because the ratio of colour pigment and gloss pigment changes.
