Basic terms


Thin pieces (0.5-3mm) of quality trees which are used mainly to stick to furniture boards. This way they form a surface which imitates solid wood. Veneers can be preserved by using products for wood protection and decoration.

Biocidal agent

A chemical agent containing biocides which eliminate fungi. Such a product penetrates deep wood structures as well as eliminates and prevents from fungus reoccurrence.


Chemical substances which protect wood against influence of fungi, insects, blue stain or mould. Penetrate wood and prevent from the aforementioned threats. It’s compulsory to follow the safety recommendations while using the agents which contain biocidal substances.

Blue stain

A type of fungus which causes blue stain on wood. Mainly, it affects coniferous wood and develops at 20% humidity. It can be found in two versions: secondary blue stain (affecting the painting coat) and wood blue stain (developing in wood).

Carnauba Wax

One of the most durable natural waxes. It’s far more durable than beeswax. It is derived from leaves of Copernicia prunifera tree.


Very dangerous type of fungus which destroys the wood cells non-recoverably, e.g. mould, bracket fungus.


A varnish product intended for providing uniform painting coats. Enamel covers the natural texture of wood grains. It contains resins and pigments. They do not protect wood against biological hazards.


Valued for its strength. Easy to take care of, resistant to pests and weather conditions. We can distinguish domestic wood (oak, elm, spruce) and exotic one (teak, meranti, cedar, mahogany).


Products which penetrate wood and does not provide any coat on its surface. They fully protect wood against weather conditions. They are recommended for hardwood species such as exotic one and protection of garden furniture and terraces.

Painting coat

Protective-decorative coat on wood surface obtained as a result of varnish, lacquer or stain application. It is often called ‘protective film’. Perform aesthetic ( the texture, gloss degree) and protective functions (protective against water, moisture and UV).

Pigments and colorants

Superfine components which impart colour to stains, varnishes etc. High quality iron pigments are characterized by high resistance to UV radiation.


Wood saturation by various chemical substances. The purpose of preservation is to protect wood against destructive influence of weather or biological conditions. An essential feature of preservatives is the fact that they penetrate the deep wood structures and additionally emphasize the wood texture. Colourless preservatives are free from any pigments which results in poor resistance to UV radiation.

Pressure preservation

The most efficient preservation method, which can be performed in industrial conditions by taking advantage of special equipment. Within this method wood is saturated under high pressure in specially designed chambers.


Substances which enable to dilute resins without changing their chemical parameters. Solvents volatilize during the dry time of a painting coat.


Is intended for colouring unprotected wood. Stain does not provide a coat and penetrates wood. The surface where stain was applied must be protected by relevant colourless varnish. It colours wood and emphasizes its grains.


Ultraviolet radiation containing destructive UV which destroy wood-wool (the main wood structure) resulting in its fragility and final decay.

Varnish (lasure)

A product for wood protection and decoration emphasising wood grains. It often contains pigments which colour the wood. Varnish stain protects against weather conditions.

Varnish and Stain

A mix of lacquer and stain. Intended for protective and decorative painting of external and internal objects. It provides transparent lacquer coats which emphasise wood grains. The obtained coat is resistant to weather conditions.


Products which after application upon wood provide a sealed and colourless coat, oftentimes called ‘protective film’. They ensure protective and decorative properties, emphasize wood grains and protection against UV radiation and water.


The brand of high-quality products for wood protection and decoration. The brand offers a wide range of solutions in the form of products which protect wood efficiently and permanently.

Wood moisture

Each wood contains particles of water. Also seasoned wood contains slight amount of water. The amount of water in wood is expressed in percentage by a ratio of dry wood weight.

Wood priming

A primer penetrates the deep wood structures and delivers biocides and other protective components. Suitably selected primer decreases wood absorptiveness and ensures an ideal surface for subsequent paint coats.

Wood seasoning

A process of drying wood whose purpose is to level up its moisture with the air moisture. The process should be conducted in ventilated and covered area.

Wood turning grey

A phenomena triggered by UV radiation. It appears on wood in the form of flat and grey surface (wood-wool destruction effect). The wood in such a condition is not protected against weather conditions which consequently leads to occurrence of fungi and insects.
