Awlgrip Launches Awlwood MA

A revolutionary new exterior Brightwork system

Brisbane, Australia: AkzoNobel’s Awlgrip business today announces the launch of Awlwood MA, an innovative new product for exterior wooden surfaces.

Awlwood MA is a high building, fast curing system that allows multiple applications per day reducing work time for the applicator. Coupled with being applicable over a wide range of temperatures and humidity’s, suitable for nearly all wood types and applicable by various methods, Awlwood MA is an outstanding choice for any applicator looking for a long-lasting robust exterior clear. 

Awlwood MA has the convenience of single component products with performance associated with multi-pack systems. The unique and proprietary resin chemistry of the Awlwood MA Primer bonds directly to the wood cellular structure and the industry-unique incorporation of UV absorbers with polymer backbone in the Finish means that Awlwood MA performs and protects the substrate over a greater time period whilst retaining the same gloss, DOI and natural appearance as first application.

“It’s not often that something like Awlwood MA comes along. Outstanding performance from a one pack product, easily comparable to the multi-pack products in use in the market today, is not something that is easily achieved but with the unique, and proprietary, resin technology of Awlwood MA we have been able to give our customers the convenience of a single pack with the performance of a two-pack,” says Chris Toole, Global Brand Manager, Awlgrip. “Being able to apply multiple coats in one day, machine sandable within 24 hours and a vastly reduced number of coats all combine to give a system that is faster and more convenient for our customers, reducing overall work time and effort.”

Awlwood MA is currently only being launched in the Asia Pacific region but will soon be rolled out globally.
