What is Wood Paint?
  • The main purpose of this kind of paint is to protect the wood.
    As we all know, wood is vastly used for architectural structures in Japan.
    While there are advantages of using them, such as the aesthetics and the relatively low difficulty in processing them.
    Wood has its weak points because of its natural property, such as sesceptible to batural cases such as sunlight, wind, rain, mold and fungi.
    Wood protection paint is a paint that can be maintained regularly to protect wood from natural enemies and maintain their beauty.
  • What is Natural Paint?
  • Generally, it refers to paints made from natural materials (vegetable fats and oils, natural resins, etc.) as the main raw materials.
    Colors close to white color have the highest reflectance, while colors close to black color have lower reflectance.
    It can be said that a bright color such as white generally tends to provide a heat shielding effect.
  • How long does the effect of wood paint last?
    The effect varies depending on the condition of the coated object (the applied wood parts), but applying it regularly will increase the durability and the resistant to weather changes over time.
    Recently, we have a line-up of products that are resistant to insects, mildew, mold and also some with antiseptic properties, so we can provide paints according to the condition.
    Can I do the painting process by myself?
    Yes, you can.
    There are some undiluted wood paint products available, so there is no need to dilute them with thinner or anything. For the process, you don't even need scaffolding; you can do a DIY painting on a simple wooden deck in your yards.
