CATAS QUALITY AWARD
AND CATAS QUALITY AWARD PLUS

Coating systems for exterior wood.

The coating systems undergo various tests that include both natural weathering and tests that serve to assess certain inherent properties of the coatings (elasticity, effectiveness against biological attack, applicability, etc.). The main test is natural weathering and lasts one year, though this can be extended to two years to achieve the next level up, the PLUS award.

CATAS WKI PREMIUM
AND CATAS WKI PREMIUM PLUS

Coating systems for exterior wood.

The coating systems undergo various tests that include, above all, natural weathering, which is carried out at both the CATAS site (Italy) and the WKI-Fraunhofer Institute for Wood Research facility (Germany). Other tests are also carried out that serve to assess certain inherent properties of the coatings (elasticity, effectiveness against biological attack, applicability, etc.). The main test is natural weathering (carried out simultaneously in Italy and German) and lasts one year, though this can be extended to two years to achieve the next level up, the PLUS award.
