Wood protection primers – good protection against fungi, blue stain and pests
Wood is frequently afflicted by typical wood pests such as xylophaga and fungi. In order to increase the durability of garden houses, cladding and other structural elements made of wood, they should be painted with a wood protection primer. In addition, there are wood protection products for treating already weathered wood surfaces in order to provide these with a protective layer too.
Wood is easily afflicted by pests such as the woodworm or the wood tick outdoors. In addition, a blue stain can be caused by fungi. This blue stain occurs mainly in softwoods such as spruce or pinewood. In order to prevent all this damage from the outset, there are primers which act as a protective layer. They form the basis for further coating with a transparent wood finish or a wood protection paint.
Primers protect the wood outdoors
Wood protection primers are made in solvent-based or water-based form. They are thin and thus penetrate into the deeper layers of the wood. At the same time, they ensure a uniform surface, so that a uniform colour image is created after painting with a paint or a transparent wood finish. The natural grain of the wood is preserved when applying a primer and is also visible after further treatment with a wood protection finish. If you want to protect wood in this way, you can buy the necessary wood protection primer in various finishes from our shop ADLER-Farbenmeister.
Wood primers for protection against fungi and wood pests are mainly used for windows, doors, wood cladding, balconies, carports and garden houses. Inside the house, however, they are also used for load-bearing structural elements made of wood, such as roof trusses. In this area, a good wood preservative serves above all to ensure the safety of the people who live or work in the building.
Renovating weathered wood
Also wood, whose surface is already weathered, can get a fresh appearance again with the appropriate means. For this purpose, our Pullex Renovier-Grund is suitable for brightening up old and greyed wood. At the same time, the coating protects against blue stain, fungi and damaging insects. With the Pullex Renovier-Grund you can treat varnished and opaque painted wood. Then brush the wood again with a transparent wood finish or a wood protection paint to make the surface weather-resistant and to design according to your wishes. For this purpose, for example, the Pullex transparent wood finishes are suitable for different species of wood or our product Pullex Color, which you can order from our shop ADLER-Farbenmeister in many different colours. Both the transparent wood finishes and the wood paints offer additional protection against blue stain and attacks of mould.
