    Anker Stuy Coatings work in partnership with Accsys Technologies to offer the best coating performance on Accoya and Tricoya® wood with coatings formulated to provide optimum adhesion, giving outstanding long-term durability.

    Accoya offers a combination of stability, durability, and versatility. The wood does not have any shrinkage and swelling behaviour, which means it's incredibly durable. However, it is very important to seal the end grain of Accoya and to apply a good coating system that offers low water absorption in the wood, because the wood is still able to absorb water and moisture. The less water uptake in wood the longer the outdoor durability will be.

    Anker Stuy offers a Wood coating system that is easy to apply, has quick-drying and curing behaviour, and will make sure that the water and moisture uptake will be very low. The Anker Stuy Hydrolux system for Accoya is a primer – primer – topcoat system available in opaque and translucent colours.

    Accsys Technologies is the inventor of Tricoya as well, which is supplied through Medite Smart Ply. Accoya extreme is a fibreboard that also has the great advantage of no shrinkage and swelling behaviour. However, a correct seal of the end grain is very important, as well as a good coating system for the surface. Tricoya is often used in exterior doors. Our Hydrolux woodcoatings have great adhesion on Tricoya and will also minimalize the moisture content in the Tricoya. This will lead to a long outdoor durability. Besides that, our primer will fill the fibreboard and will leave a beautiful smooth surface behind.

    Our wood coatings have been tested by both Accsys Technologies and Medite Smart Ply. Our system recommendations and warranty can be found on their website. For more information about Tricoya Extreme click here.

    Modified wood species

    Besides Accoya, there are more modified wood species on the market. The principle of thermal modification (changing the cell structure) of the wood consists of controlled heating to approximately 212 ˚C. After heating, the wood is carefully (evenly) cooled. The wood receives changed properties as a result of the heating process or chemical organic treatment with acids, such as increased durability and improved dimensional stability.

    Fraké Noir® - Thermally preserved African Limba (Terminalia superba). Due to the thermal treatment of the African hardwood species Limba, the durability class of the wood can be increased to durability class I. After the heat treatment, the wood acquires a beautiful colour that is comparable to the colour of walnut, thus giving it a luxurious appearance. Its characteristics are the black lines and "pinholes" that occasionally occur in the wood.

    Thermowood® - Thermally modified Finnish spruce (Picea abies). Careful sorting and thermal modification results in a beautiful softwood product with a high durability (II).
