Treatex Eco colours is the first in what we hope will be a growing collection of finishes designed to comply with increasingly stringent criteria relating to solvents and harmful VOC’s in wood finishes. Treatex Eco Colours is a high quality, environmentally friendly and weather resistant water based paint containing refined natural oils and resins extracted from renewable sources. This microporous, water repellent finish offers long term protection against UV rays from the sun and has undergone extensive testing in some of the most extreme climates around the world.
We continually strive to improve all aspects of the products we sell, not only from a performance perspective, but ecologically as well. Working closely with our chemists, we have been able to develop a solvent free (max. 5g/L VOC) product capable of dealing with the particular quirks our British weather likes to throw at us! Eco Colours are suitable to use with professional and DIY painters alike as well as being compatible with industrial coating machines.
Using a high quality binder that is capable of combining oil and water based ingredients together, we have produced a finish that achieves excellent adhesion to most timber surfaces whilst still delivering a easy to use, fast drying and exceptionally durable surface.
Being odourless, this product is suitable for both interior and exterior use and is suitable for many purposes including children’s toys, pet houses, beehives , pet cages and hutches, doors, windows, sheds, cladding, kitchen cabinets and furniture as well as any other internal or external joinery.
