Design Pine is a range of structural and decorative timber products coated with a genuine primer. Impregnated with a preservative to prevent the onset of decay and resist insect attack in all above ground applications, Design Pine is finger jointed and or laminated for increased dimensional stability to give a reliable product for years to come.
All finger jointed primed products are made up of four key components, these being the timber, the preservative, the glue system, and the primer system. Each one of the defined components can vary in quality and performance, each should be evaluated on their own merit prior to selecting a product. Design Pine does not jeopardized its quality as only the finest quality components are used to create the ultimate outdoor timber solution.
Design Pine is manufactured from environmentally friendly sustainable plantation grown Radiata pine. Through the manufacturing process all the natural features and defects which may induce the timber to bow or twist are removed. The pine shook is then finger jointed back together to produce a clear defect free straight board. The removal of the all visible natural defects reduces the risk of resin bleed and other impurities coming to the surface for the life of the product. Lamination may also be used to increase the product range by creating larger Design Pine profiles e.g. 185x185 posts or 320x65 beams. The lamination also assists in the structural and dimensional integrity as the finished products are longer, stronger and straighter than conventional solid Radiata boards.
The primer system
Design Pine's revolutionary blue primer has greater flexibility and UV resistance to give a more durable undercoat for the life of the painting system. The technology in the Design Pine primer was a world first the time of release as it includes a moisture management system to slow moisture ingress and durability second to none as it can remain exposed on a building site for 12 weeks before it will start to deteriorate, thus aiding to the dimensional stability long term performance of the product range. Developed over three years, the Design Pine primer is specifically designed to coat solvent based timber preservation systems. The result is a genuine primer coating that is ready to directly topcoat with any quality exterior paint.
All blue primer systems are not the same - ask for Design Pine by name.
