MicroShades® is a unique coloured pigment system designed to enhance the natural beauty of treated timber.
Koppers MicroShades® is a pigmented colour product that is an “in-solution” system and has been specifically developed for timber treatment.
The MicroShades® colour system uses micronized iron oxide pigments. Iron oxide colour pigments are also used in commercial exterior grade paints and stains. The MicroShades® pigment is applied during the pressure treatment process giving the timber deep colour penetration which cannot be matched with a brush-on product.
Unlike dye-based colour systems, the MicroShades® colour pigment system provides superior colour fastness. The MicroShades system exhibits a longer lasting colour.
The MicroShades® system gives an attractive and consistent copper brown colour to timber in external applications.
