Coatings and Finishes

Accoya cladding can be left to weather naturally and will eventually turn a grey colour over time. For more information see, our technical weathering document. If you prefer, you can choose to stain or paint Accoya to achieve the look you require. If you wish to avoid natural weathering there are many coatings options available please contact us for further information on coatings.

James Latham offers Accoya cladding with coatings and stains tested by leading manufacturers. These coating manufacturers include:

  • Teknos
  • Sikkens
  • Morrells
  • Sansin
  • Drywood

Sansin Finish line Coatings

A low VoC, non-film coating in 12 exclusive, contemporary colours. The penetrating, matt finish allows the beauty of the grain to show through. The Accoya’s uniquely sanded and brushed surface allows the non-film based Sansin coating to penetrate beneath the surface of the timber, allowing the paint to bind to the cells preventing peeling and cracking.
