Natural Color

Improved, two-layer finish in oil
Platowood introduces an improved finish Natural Color Oil. This finish requires less maintenance and provides a more intense color. New feature is a pretreatment with a water-based Sunprimer. The familiair oil is applied on top of that. This makes it a two-layer finish. As of September this becomes our new standard for the Natural Color Oil. More information can be found on our information page. The information below still concerns the one-layer information.


Would you like the wood from Platowood to retain its warm color as much as possible and not to age? The Natural Color finish ensures color retention of the wooden parts. There is a variant based on oil and there is a stain.

Natural Color Stain

Would you like the wood to retain its color? Platowood Natural Color is a semi-transparent stain, suitable for Platowood Fraké, which ensures the color retention of the laminated wood. Natural Color gives the wood a warm brown color that, for the sake of UV protection, is slightly darker than the natural wood color. The maintenance interval of the finish is 3 to 4 years. When following the maintenance instructions, Platowood offers a 10-year warranty on this finish. The stain must always be applied to a brushed surface at the factory.

Natural Color Oil

Platowood has developed an environmentally friendly color based on an oil. The Natural Color Oil gives the wood a natural look. This is completely non-toxic (0% VOC and solvents) and therefore extremely environmentally friendly. Because the color is oil-based and is degraded by weather, the wood will still discolor. If you want to keep this color, a maintenance interval of 9 to 12 months is required, depending on the exposure to UV radiation. If a second layer is applied after a number of (5-6) months, the discolouration will be delayed longer.
