Did you know that Lanotec, the Australian-made leader in sustainable multi-purpose lubricants and protectants, has an extended specialist offering, with a product line dedicated directly for use on wood products?
Introducing Lanotec Timber Seal, the ideal all-natural sealer for wooden decking, furniture and more, which works by penetrating into wood, including exposed decking and furniture, to prevent drying, splitting, cracking and wood rot.
The product also weatherproofs and highlights natural timber grains, all while protecting any metal fastenings and fittings from corrosion.
Available in various pack sizes, Lanotec Timber Seal can be used straight from the container, and does not require thinning or mixing.
Additionally, Timber Seal PLUS is available for use as a sealant for rough-sawn timber.
Case Study: Port Coogee
Welcome to Port Coogee, located just to the south of Perth, Western Australia, an area that is exposed to the full gamut of Indian Ocean weather conditions over the course of a year, from wild winters to scorching summers.
Owned and managed by the City of Cockburn, the Coogee Bay Marina has seen significant recent expansion, providing berthing for hundreds of vessels, as well as associated public and private walkways.
Due to the location of this timber over waterways, the City of Cockburn sought an effective long-term timber treatment, which was cost-effective and safe to use in the environmentally sensitive location, with the obvious choice being Timber Seal Plus.
The marina’s latest timber jetty was produced by Jarrah and installed just over a year ago, with the timber treated with Timber Seal Plus prior to construction.
The first re-coat of the product was recently applied, with the contractor noting that Timber Seal Plus was the easiest product that they have used to date, with the next coat set to be applied May next year, ahead of the worst of the Winter weather.
The City of Cockburn is now seeking to remove the paint treatment from its original boardwalk so that it can be treated with Timber Seal and brought in line with the newer areas of the facility.
The results stand for themselves, with the timber well protected while being able to age naturally.
