Bamboo Shield Thermo is used for the basic treatment and maintenance of all Thermo products, such as decking and cladding. With Bamboo Shield Thermo you can refresh the original color.
The composition of the oil ensures that the product is water soluble. The oil provides a strong water and dirt repellent surface. In the process, it also slows down the formation of fungi and algae. Finally, Bamboo Shield Thermo has excellent UV protection.
|Yield per liter:||8-12 m²|
Open the can and stir the oil carefully before use. Apply the oil with a brush in an even thin layer and treat the front sides first. The oil has a dark color. Treat the entire surface at once and spread the oil thoroughly. Remove excess oil with a clean cloth within 5 minutes or less. Pay special attention to the joints and grooves, as the oil often remains thicker there.
It takes 24 to 48 hours for the oil to fully cure; the exact time will depend on weather conditions and temperature. During this time, the bamboo surface should not come in contact with water (rain). Once dry, the bamboo can be rubbed down for an extra durable surface. This can be done with a hand pad or a single disc machine.
Store Bamboo Shield Thermo in a dark, dry place and out of the reach of children. To protect your bamboo products from aging in the long term, treat them annually with Bamboo Shield Thermo.

With photosynthesis, bamboo extracts CO2 from the air and releases oxygen. Bamboo produces about 40% more oxygen than wood and absorbs up to 35% more CO2 than wood. That makes bamboo better for CO2 offsetting than wood.
Bamboo & Environment
The use of bamboo greatly reduces the greenhouse effect and climate change. Bamboo absorbs greenhouse gases and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent species of hardwood. This is due to its high growth rate and photosynthesis. Climate change has been an issue for several years, which is why bamboo could be included as a certified hardwood. Bamboo is also suitable for biomass production because it gives the second highest biomass on earth.
Bamboo & Cracks
A natural characteristic of bamboo is that cracks may appear vertically, this cannot be prevented. These are caused by differences in climate and humidity.
If you treat the bamboo poles with an oil or lacquer, the number of cracks will be less than if you do not apply a protective layer. But unfortunately this cannot be prevented 100%. The cracks can expand and shrink depending on the climate.
Protect the forest: build with bamboo
Every year more than 13 million hectares of forest are cut down.That's 1140 soccer fields every hour. Of course forests are planted, but the annual net loss of forest is over 7 million hectares, which is more than twice the area of Belgium. If those forests were not cut down, up to a quarter less CO2 would be released into the air.
