Abstract: Various surface treatments are applied in order to protect exterior building wooden claddings towards degradation from natural outdoor climate exposure. Development of new surface treatments, e.g. by applying nanotechnology, may increase the durability of the stain and paint systems themselves, hence offering a better protection and thus a longer lifetime of the wooden claddings.
In this study several surface treatments for wooden claddings like stain, opaque stain, paint and paints with nanoparticle modifications have been investigated when subjected to both natural outdoor climate ageing and accelerated climate ageing. The objective of the study was twofold, i.e. to investigate if the nanoparticle modified paints performed better with respect to durability versus their traditional counterparts, and furthermore to evaluate to what extent Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy may be utilized for assessing any degradation during elapsed ageing time.
