Intergrain products have been designed to protect the natural beauty of timber. They are recognised as a high performance, environmentally responsible timber finishes.
Traditional solvent based timber finishes contain high levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) which are greenhouse gas carbon emissions that evaporate into the atmosphere as the coating dries. These compounds are usually petro-chemical solvents which are characterised by strong chemical fumes that contribute to air pollution. For every four litre can of traditional decking oil, usually at least two litres of VOCs go straight into the atmosphere.
Water based timber finishes have a very low solvent level. Therefore, using water based timber finishes is a far more environmentally responsible option than using a solvent based coating. Intergrain water based timber finishes are much gentler on the environment.
Researched, Developed, and Tested
With world-class research and development resources, along with access to the latest technological developments from around the globe, Intergrain is continually innovating coatings that redefine performance expectations. All products are tested on a range of timber species at three registered testing sites across Australia and New Zealand which provide various weather conditions, so you can be confident that Intergrain products will perform at the highest standard.
Inspired by Professionals, Chosen by Professionals
Intergrain products are designed for the demands of Architects and Landscape Architects. Because of the attractive finishes which are environmentally responsible and give long-lasting performance, Intergrain timber finishes have been selected throughout New Zealand for use on homes, commercial developments and prestigious projects. Examples of recent projects that have specified Intergrain coatings are the Fleming's and Trailfinders Australian Garden at the Chelsea Flower Show in London.
As the organisation behind the Intergrain Timber Vision Awards, Intergrain celebrates the innovative use of timber in modern architecture and landscape design.
