IN MOST CASES, FIND AN ANSWER TO YOUR QUESTION IN OUR FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)?
1/ What is Composite Premium?
Composite Premium is made from a mix of 2/3 wood (recycled, wood chips and sawdust) and one third polymers (polyethylene for good resistance to U.V).
2/ How does the color of composite PREMIUM behave?
The PREMIUM composite does not gray like solid wood. Hue variations are low.
Exposure to UV and the presence of wood flour as a raw material are the cause of a temporary and natural phenomenon. This phenomenon is called tanning and occurs from the first days after UV exposure of the Composite PREMIUM® wood boards. During this phase, the board is charged with UV, then a yellowing of the hue can be observed. This phase lasts a few weeks and the colors also stabilize near their original color. Thus, it is possible, by ordering an additional blade to find a difference in color with the boards already laid. This difference will disappear.
3/ What tools for assembly or installation of composite PREMIUM required?
It requires no special tools. The composite wood can be processed like solid wood (saw, planer, drill). For fastening neither glue nor nails may be used. *
4/ What care require decking and fencing Composite PREMIUM®?
The boards of composite wood “Composite Premium®” do not require special protection. With a little care, but you can keep your deckig long time as a new. For this reason, we recommend to clean the deck once a year as follows:
- Clean the decking with water and mild detergent (. Eg the cleaning agent for laminated wood flooring composite Premium) longitudinally
- Clean the joints between the boards using a metal blade, so that water can drain away still good.
Mold on the surface can generate stains. To clean, use a product containing diluted bleach. To remove grease or oil stains, use a regular dishwashing detergent.
For persistent scratches or stains, use a brass brush to wet the boards to prevent them from turning on. Brush gently in the longitudinal direction of the boards. In general, fat stains disappear under the action of UV in a few weeks. Brushing or sanding may cause slight discoloration that will disappear over time.
Moisture stains may appear in exposed areas, such as around furniture or under the gutter. These spots disappear over time under the action of UV and bad weather. It is possible to accelerate this process by watering and cleaning the area concerned with a brush (act in the longitudinal direction of the boards).
Vertical use of fencing bards results in less intensive natural leaching than for decking.
This is why you can spot patches on the boards. The appearance of stains depends on the climate and actual conditions of use. To preserve the beauty of your fecing over the years, a maintenance twice a year is advised.

In order to accelerate the phenomenon, the boards can be cleaned by means of a jet of water and a brush broom acting in the longitudinal direction of the blades.|
|Moisture rings||Temporary phenomenon if the blades are exposed to UV and bad weather||Evaporating water may occasionally pull moisture rings to be. This type of stain is especially after the first rain and often found in protected||Although this phenomenon is temporary and disappears under the action of UV and bad weather, the process can be accelerated by cleaning the blades with a water jet and a brush by acting in the longitudinal direction of the blades. blades.|
|Stain of dirt||Long lasting if untreated||Generated by air pollution. Dirt is deposited on the surface.||This type of stains can be removed by mechanical action.
Material: scratch sponge or scrubbing brush.
Procedure:always act in the longitudinal direction of the planks. Do not use a pressure washer .
5/ Is a Composite PREMIUM decking sustainable?
Yes. The combination of wood and polymer gives the Composite PREMIUM decking exceptional resistance properties. A Composite PREMIUM decking is warranteed for 20 years against termites and fungi.
