Many of you may know about the Tower of London Superbloom that took place in the summer of last year. It was installed to mark the platinum jubilee of the late Queen Elizabeth II.
The beautiful, curved pine wood deck was designed by Karl Harrison – a long standing friend of Owatrol. We were very excited to learn that he decided to use Owatrol Solid Colour Stain (S.C.S) in the colour Grey on the upstand of the curved pine deck!
Design and use of S.C.S
Using S.C.S for a project like this is a great honour, especially as we know that it will look amazing for years to come. This is because S.C.S contains Emulsa-Bond, our bonding primer, which gives it excellent adherence without the need for lengthy preparation and priming. This is something that is unrivalled by other available products.
We are so sure of our quality that S.C.S is guaranteed* against peeling and flaking for 15 years on vertical surfaces and 5 years on horizontal surfaces. So not only will it make your wood surfaces look good, but it will have long-lasting protection against weathering, pollution and UV rays.
S.C.S is highly versatile and is perfect for use on sidings, cladding, fencing, decks, garden furniture, docks and many other wooden surfaces. You can also use S.C.S on softwood, hardwood, tropical wood and even thermo-heated wood surfaces. You can even use it on weathered vertical masonry including stucco, painted block and EIFS.
Available in 1, 2.5, 10 & 20 litre containers and 35 different shades, S.C.S is perfect for any colour palette. We also supply free colour cards to help you narrow down your choice, as well as 100ml sample pots (which are also on a buy 1 get the rest half price offer) to help you to decide on the perfect colour.
