Treatments by Latham Timber


Teknos has been providing high quality, water-based and environmentally friendly surface treatments to the industrial wood industry for over 70 years.

Teknos coatings are designed to keep your cladding looking its best year after year.  They carefully select the best and most appropriate products from their extensive group portfolio to ensure their coatings offer optimum performance for the UK market. Teknos’ high quality products have been developed to help timber withstand the harshest climates and protect it from UV-light, rain, humidity and extreme temperatures.  
Their coatings help you to control the inherent properties of different timbers. Teknos coatings help to minimise discolouration, maximise durability and protect against problems such as blue stain and surface mold. State of the art technology enables Teknos to significantly reduce particle sizes of pigments and binders, resulting in improved flow, penetration and saturation and a better overall finish.
All Teknos products are water-based and do not contain lead, chrome or other heavy metal additives. They comply fully with European VOC emission Standards and REACH regulations, and our manufacturing facilities hold ISO 9001 quality and ISO 14001 environmental certificates.
