These days, we are surrounded by the Green Movement, global warming and what we, as consumers, can do about protecting our planet. We all have a responsibility to make informed choices about the products we buy, the companies we support, and the impact of our decisions.

Sikkens is a global brand, which makes the highest quality wood coatings available. Log homes and wood structures are a beautiful, natural, and renewable form of building that require superior coatings to protect and preserve. Some waterborne coatings are promoted as more environmentally friendly than their solvent based counterparts; however, there are other factors to consider. The environmental impact of a coating should be looked at as a whole, sometimes termed life cycle approach. A life cycle approach gives you the entire picture needed to make an accurate assessment of a coating. There can be raw materials used in waterborne coatings that are considered dangerous and non-renewable. VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) is not the only issue. If a latex coating is made with petroleum by products, which require intensive energy to produce, then just comparing VOC’s does not give the full story.

Here at Sikkens, we provide alkyd/oil high solids coatings for log homes and wood structures that meet stringent VOC requirements. In addition, alkyds are made from renewable plant based oils such as linseed and soy, and provide the highest level of protection for wood structures. We believe that a superior quality product that requires fewer coats and less maintenance will minimize the total environmental impact.
