Do you care about making sure your building project uses eco-friendly materials? Did you know that there are environmentally sustainable building choices for moulding? Tile Importer Timber Merchant is proud to offer EZITrim Plus which is a natural product produced right here in Australia. In addition to being able to buy local timber, here is why you might want to consider EZI Trim Plus:
The timber used to create EZITrim Plus is grown at a sustainable plantation of Radiata Pine. After being harvested, the timber is dried in a kiln and then docked in order to remove all of the knots or other imperfections to create a defect-free natural wood trim that is ready to topcoat and pre-primed for a premium finish.
Radiata Pine goes through a comprehensive pruning process at a young age. This allows the trees to grow free of defects. Most plantations prune this type of pine to at least five metres high. The careful growing and pruning process creates clear wood ideal for different applications.
- The absence of typical timber defects makes its surface suitable for painting.
- Radiata Pine has an even texture throughout which gives it excellent machining properties.
In an effort to protect threatened ecosystems, Radiata Pine is grown on plantations. The result of the unobtrusive growing and harvesting method is a sustainable, beautiful type of timber. Choosing to use EZITrim Pine gives you high-quality building materials that come from renewable sources.
This type of pine has an average density rating of 450 to 500 kg/m3 for every 12 per cent of moisture content. Depending on its age, the timber will naturally shrink from 3.5 to 4.5 per cent tangentially. Radially, it can go from 1.5 to 2.5 per cent. These properties give it structural integrity and dimensional stability.
After it is cut down, Radiata Pine is transferred to the facility for processing. Using a specially developed solution, each piece of timber is treated to enhance its durability. Its highly permeable surface streamlines the process. Different levels of treatment are carried out in relation to the wood’s eventual purpose.
You don’t have to sacrifice choices when you choose this sustainable option. Available in a wide range of shapes, dimensions and profiles, you can get:
- Door Jambs
- Window reveals
The unique priming process creates a particularly smooth look. In fact, up to 3 different applications of primers are applied to get rid of raised grain and visible joints. Moreover, the adhesive used in the laminating and fingerjointing of EZITrim Plus gives it:
- Moisture resistance
- Excellent performance in kitchens and bathrooms
