South Africa: Plascon Launches New Woodcare Restoration Range

Plascon has launched a new Woodcare Restoration Range to help make restorations easier and eliminate damaging effects caused by the likes of mildew and mould, as well as greying and grime.

"Plascon has always manufactured the Woodcare range of products to protect interior and exterior wooden surface and, as more forests are being destroyed to create more of these goods, we realised the need for a product range to help specifically with wood-care restorations," said Melanie Anders, brand manager of the specialist category. "So we created a range that would allow people to restore their wooden furniture, decks and general household wooden surfaces from a number of damaging effects in a simple, step-by-step manner. The old adage 'Out with the old and in with the new' doesn't hold true."

Four unique water-based, biodegradable products

Plascon's Woodcare Restoration range consists of four unique water-based, biodegradable products: Woodcare Coatings Remover for Wood (WCR1), Woodcare Cleaner & Brightener (WCR2), Woodcare Weathered Wood Restorer (WCR3), and Woodcare Wax and Oil Remover for Wood (WCR4). Together, they make a do-it-yourself restoration team that gives that rich, lustrous look back to wooden surfaces.

So whether it's stripping paint or varnish off an antique armoire, revitalising an outside pool deck or bringing the shine back to a rather dull piece of furniture, Plascon's Woodcare Restoration Range is the solution. All products are also available in 1 litre and 3 litre packs for bigger projects.

Plascon has also ensured that the products in its Woodcare Restoration Range are "Eco-kind", in that they are free of Methylene Chloride and they are biodegradable. Most paint-stripping products contain a number of harmful chemicals including the solvent Methylene Chloride that puts exposed users at risk of developing health issues. With Plascon's Woodcare Restoration Range, there are no harmful side effects to the user's health, or the environment.
