During construction, it is common for building materials to get wet because of rain, and reasonable amounts of wetness can be expected during a typical construction. This causes a lot of extra costs such as; covering materials and waiting for materials to dry.
Through a refined production process Metsä Wood has developed a technology for an improved Spruce Plywood panel – Metsä Wood Spruce WeatherGuard™.
Metsä Wood WeatherGuard is a spruce plywood panel with a hydrophobic surface. The surface rejects rainwater and therefor reduces the amount of water absorbed by the panel, by up to 60%. Reduced water absorption causes the panel to be more dimensional stable which means you will not spend time on twisted and warped panels and that the panel dries up quicker, causing faster building time and less risk of mould growth later.
Now you do not have to stop work and spend time covering up your building site and materials just because of some rainy weather.
