Tanatone® is a dye base colour additive that is incorporated with Tanalith® preservative into a standard, single stage, high pressure treatment process.
Tanatone® colour and TANALITH Extra water repellent additives can provide a range of added value TANALITH treated timber options.
Timbers treated with TANALITH wood preservatives have a long term protection against decay and insect attack that provides real confidence in their use in a wide range of markets.
The initial colour of these TANALITH treated timbers is a pale green which blends well into many environments. However, consumers increasingly want more colour options for their treated garden and construction timbers.
We have developed a portfolio of colour additive options to offer a variety of in-vogue brown or grey alternative choices to the treated timbers.
This leaflet explains the colour options available for TANALITH.
Tanatone is a brown colour additive that can be used with TANALITH wood preservative within the treatment process to add a built-in colour alternative. TANATONE treated timbers have all the same preservative protection properties as TANALITH treated timbers.
Over time the brown colour of Tanatone will gradually fade. If required the colour can be refreshed with a brush-on colour product. Always follow the manufacturer’s full recommendations.
Tanatone treatment is perfect for rough sawn fencing and landscaping timbers but can also be used on planed decking or cladding timbers. TANATONE treatment eliminates the need for brush applied colour at the point of installation.
