Vulcan Primed Cladding (for paint finish) is created from thermally modified New Zealand plantation timber and factory pre-primed for optimal coating performance.
The thermal modification process means Vulcan Primed Cladding has enhanced stability, reduced resin content so is good for dark colours, and is naturally durable so does not require any added chemical preservatives.
Modern, clean lines.
Primed (Paint Finish)
Vulcan timbers are treated with heat and steam rather than chemicals, which means the product is ‘pre-shrunk’ and will be more stable in service.
Grown trees experience resistance (like wind for example) perpendicular to the grain, so it makes sense to produce wood products which are also cut perpendicular to the grain. Abodo Vulcan Cladding is vertical grain, which means weatherboards have greater stability and less surface cracking.
This product is naturally durable, and contains no wood preservatives. Just as nature intended.

Yes. For most profiles, we offer various corner, flashing, fascia and finishing profiles to match the cladding boards. Using these accessories will ensure optimal performance of the cladding system in service.
Cladding is bit more technical than decking, so always consult with a professional before starting your project. A Licenced Building Practitioner is required for install.
Abodo cladding may be face fixed or secret fixed depending on the profile shape. Stainless steel ring shank nails or self-drilling stainless steel countersunk screws should be used in all cases. Generally we recommend to fix boards onto a drained cavity system to allow good airflow and optimum weather protection.
All profiles requires a minimum 2mm expansion gap to be left between boards, you need to ensure all cut ends must are resealed with penetrating oil or sealer. Boards should be coated all sides and re-coated regularly as required thereafter.
