        Surface refinement centre

        Even multi-layered setups with intermediate sanding are no problem for the surface refinement centre at the cross-laminated timber production site in Stall, Austria.

        • A fully automatic scanner recognises the geometry of plates. Components are recognised automatically and processing is implemented digitally from the customer orders without any detours.
        • Two CNC-controlled robotic arms, each with four spray nozzles, can manage up to seven colour cycles, ensuring an excellent coating of the surface.
        • Subsequent drying is carried out using hot air that is dehumidified beforehand.
        • The fully automatic intermediate polishing machine smooths out fibres and prepares surfaces for a second layering.

        Only water-based materials are processed

        • All-purpose coating for internal and external using standard white finishes (for indoor use only) and grey colours. On request, special colours for specific projects are also available.
        • Coating finishes for residential property: colourless wax glazing based on natural resin and linseed oil varnish for indoor use.
        • Water-based, colourless coating including blue stain protection for external use. On request, special colours for specific projects are also available.
        • Water-based intermediate and final coating for oiled surface finishes, especially suitable for wood surfaces made of oak, birch and larch.
        • Transparent UV and yellowing protection, especially suitable for light wood surfaces such as spruce, fir and birch.
        • Water-based impregnation to protect against blue-staining fungi, decay, insects and termites.
        • Temporary, transparent moisture and dirt repellent building site and assembly protection for interior and exterior application on surfaces.
        • End-grain protection to prevent the absorption of moisture during assembly, especially recommended for large construction sites.
        • Fire protection impregnation to achieve B-s2, d0 for internal and external areas that are not exposed to weather; additional chromophoric coatings is available on request.
