JSC has a selection of thermally modified timbers available. The JSC TMT Taxon range is a selection of clearer grade thermally modified timber options that have minimal natural rustic characteristics. Due to the thermally modified process that the timbers undergo, they come in a variety of rich brown tones and are suitable for a variety of interior and exterior applications such as exterior claddings, interior linings, battens and more depending on the type you choose.
JSC TMT Taxon takes a full range of oil and water-based coatings well and can accept darker coatings with a significant reduction in dimensional movement. Like any natural timber, this range of products will eventually weather to shades of grey when subjected to the environmental elements of temperature, moisture, and UV rays. Therefore, to help maintain your fresh, new colour, the use of a premium grade oil stain with a UV protectant is recommended, with a factory applied envelope coat as the first step to a long and beautiful life.
