High-performance finishes for wooden vertical facades
Houses in the mountains and by the sea
The first strategy to protect the wood from solar radiation is the creation of a physical barrier by applying surface finishes or in-depth treatments containing shielding pigments. 
High elasticity
A high protection and barrier capacity can be achieved by using a formula with high solid content and with high flexible polymers.
High solid
The strategy of applying several treatments with an impregnating agent or a generic low polymer content primer is not recommended: the huge amount of water evaporates leaving voids or porosity critical for water absorption.
The application of the right amount of polymer is obtained by applying a gel coating (thixotropic) with a high solid content, which inhibits dripping phenomena.
A gel (thixotropic fluid) is a flowing liquid with low viscosity during application under the action of the brush (dynamic conditions) and becomes a thick or viscous gel after application (static conditions), to avoid dripping.
