At Brookridge Timber, we are committed to offering our customers not just timber cladding but an experience that transcends the ordinary. Our journey into timber has led us to discover innovations that enhance the longevity, beauty, and sustainability of timber products. One such innovation is the MicroShades Light-Brown Colour System, a game-changer in the world of timber cladding.

The Art of Colour Evolution

MicroShades Light-Brown is a revolutionary colour system designed for use in micronized preservative systems. It’s a blend of micronised pigments and an azo-dye, and here’s where the magic begins. The azo-dye ensures that your timber cladding boards have a consistent, uniform colour immediately after treatment. However, it doesn’t stop there. This dye is designed to fade gradually when exposed to weathering, making way for something extraordinary.

The micronised pigments in the MicroShades Light-Brown system for timber cladding are the true heroes of the story. These pigments have a unique property: they react with UV light. When your timber cladding is exposed to the sun, something beautiful happens. Within just a few weeks, that once dull orange hue transforms into a vibrant golden brown. This is not just a change in colour; it’s a metamorphosis that adds character and depth to your cladding.

A Palette of Possibilities

Imagine freshly treated MicroShades Light-Brown boards varying from medium to dark brown, depending on the substrate. These boards gradually become lighter as they dry. Before installation, they can sport an almost matt medium-brown appearance, showcasing the characteristics of azo-dyes. However, this is just the beginning.

Once installed and exposed to UV light, the azo-dye begins to fade, allowing the micronized pigments to shine. The transformation is astounding. After a few weeks, that once-matt light-brown hue evolves into a vibrant golden brown, creating a timber cladding that’s not only aesthetically pleasing but also uniquely yours.

Uniformity in Diversity

It’s important to note that the rate of colour change may vary depending on UV exposure. This means that immediately after installation, cladding on different parts of your building might appear slightly different. However, fret not. Nature has its ways. Over time, these differences will naturally even out, resulting in a harmonious, uniform, and long-lasting appearance across your site.

The Promise of Longevity

What truly sets MicroShades Light-Brown apart is its incredible staying power. Traditional dyed colour systems often fade quickly, leaving your cladding looking tired and dull. In contrast, the vibrant golden brown of MicroShades Light-Brown has been scientifically proven to last significantly longer. The exact duration depends on factors like timber species, usage rate, and external exposure conditions, but one thing is certain: your timber cladding will retain its beauty for years to come.

At Brookridge Timber, we believe in offering our customers more than just timber products. We offer innovation, sustainability, and a touch of artistry. Our commitment to sourcing timber from well-managed forests and embracing cutting-edge technologies like the MicroShades Light-Brown Colour System sets us apart as a leading timber cladding supplier in the South West.
