We begin with Radiata Pine from well managed and sustainable forests in Chile. Sawn lumber is carefully kiln dried, conditioned and manufactured into B&C Siding.
Treated Vascol Azure and Primed, available for Interior and Exterior applications.
All our B&C Siding are finger jointed, edge glued, sanded, molded and primed adding additional stability, ensuring profiles that lay true and flat. In our process, we start with clear # 1 finger-joint block that is free from defects. That enables us to offer 16’ and 20’ products that are fully reversible, surfaced in either S4S or S1S2E (Resawn textured) face.
Finger Jointing and Edge gluing Facts:
EPI are water borne dispersion based adhesives. The adhesives are based on special quality dispersions, which together with an isocyanate hardener provide high quality and performance bonding.
The adhesives have very high moisture, heat and solvent resistance. Examples of application areas besides small dimension laminated beams window frames, exterior doors and trim boards.
The glue joint fulfils the requirements according to SS-EN-204-D4 as well as the JIS K6806, type 1, for use in production according to JAS MAFF No. 1152, exposure class C. The joint also has good resistance against creep and constant load. 1972/1992 has fulfilled ASTM D5751 as well.
Neither the EPI Adhesive 1972 or 1989 nor the hardener 1992 contains any added formaldehyde.
B&C Sidings are available in 1" x 4" through 1"x 12" patterns, with length in 12’, 16’ and 20’, no trim-backs, and other length on request.
