Metsä Wood Spruce WeatherGuard is softwood plywood with hydrophobic surface.
During construction the weather conditions vary and the building materials can be exposed to reasonable amounts of rain water. Good construction site planning takes protection from the weather into account, and protects all moisture-sensitive building materials.
Spruce WeatherGuard is an ideal product to minimise absorption of free water during construction work.
The surface repels rainwater and therefore reduces the amount of water absorbed by the panel during construction work. At the same time, the surface allows the panel to breathe and water vapour to move freely. WeatherGuard treatment does not affect the strength properties, slip resistance, reaction to fire or corrosion of the fasteners compared to untreated spruce plywood. Use of Spruce WeatherGuard ensures faster building time and energy savings over any untreated alternatives.
