As many of you know, Kuiken Brothers has been a big fan of the complete line of WindsorOne trim boards (in fact, this is the only primed pine trim board that we stock at our locations, so if you order “primed pine” you know that we are always going to deliver a quality product. We have found that not everyone is aware that these boards are actually protected to prevent all of the inherent issues with an exposes piece of wood. This protection process is known as WindsorONE+ TRU-CORE Protection. Below are some of the facts about the process, and when installed properly, we are certain that you will see that these boards withstand the test of time.
WindsorONE+ TRU-CORE® Protected trim does not require preservative end re-treatment in the field, while LOSP treated wood requires end preservative re-treatment in the field.
Actives Delivered Deep into the Core
- The Tru-Core penetration technology takes five EPA registered decay and insect control preservatives and transports them to the core of the board, binding them to the wood fibers.
Tru-Core Penetrates Heartwood
- Tru-Core fully penetrates the heartwood of the board (unlike other outdated technologies). Heartwood typically makes up 30% of a board.
WindsorONE+Protected Trim & Pattern Boards feature a Gold IAQ rating which makes it suitable for interior use. Other generic trim boards may feature an outdated treatment done overseas to try to reduce expenses, resulting in off gassing of solvents, raising concerns for interior use safety and environmental protection.
