Abstract

The aim of this study was to assess the long term performance of the coating systems on Scots pine, Norway spruce and Thermowood after 15 years outdoor exposure in Southern Finland. Two different coatings systems were used: 1) joinery paints, with all surfaces coated, 2) the paint systems for claddings and fence, with only back side uncoated. Coating system has great influence on the performance of wood. With a two or three layer system the best performance was obtained and wood species has minor effect on the performance, especially when well performing coating system is used. Wood species has a greater importance in case of "low performing" coating.
