Recommended coating system
Anker Stuy Coatings work in partnership with Accsys Technologies to offer the best coating performance on Accoya® with coatings formulated to provide optimum adhesion, giving outstanding long-term durability
The unique properties of Accoya® include its inherent stability which results in very limited dimensional movement. This translates to a higher resistance to the shrinkage and swelling exhibited by even the most stable of other timbers. The greatly reduced movement combined with the highly moisture resistant and durable nature of Anker Stuy coatings affords years of outdoor durability with virtually no tendency to crack or flake in service. Even with very dark shades such as black or dark grey, the solar heat gain that can result in rapid changes in the dimensions of many commonly used joinery timbers is negated.
Both opaque and translucent coating systems are being field tested by both Accsys Technologies and Anker Stuy at their respective facilities in the Netherlands. Anker Stuy’s new Hydrolux coating system with unique Tri-Cryl technology ensures outstanding coating performance with paint durability comfortably exceeding 10 years. More information about this coating and the application recommendations on Accoya® are detailed on the following pages.
