Protection From UV Light and Harsh Weather

With Mathys Fassitek, you can make sure your woodwork is protected.

Mathys Fassitek is a wood stain, coming in various tones, which is transparent and easy to use. It works by impregnating the wood and protecting it from weathering and UV rays, whether it’s new woodwork or has been previously treated.

Because it’s transparent, it allows the wood to show through beautifully, no matter which colour you pick. It won’t peel or blister either and will allow your woodwork to breathe! As it really penetrates the wood, it’ll offer you deep protection throughout the changing seasons. This means you’ll be protected from the harsh weather and UV rays.


In order to get the best protection this autumn or winter, you should prime your woodwork first with Mathys Fassitek UV Wood Primer. This primer is colourless, leaving you with an invisible protective layer. This protective layer delays signs of UV damage as it reduces the effects, meaning that your wood stain (or varnish) will look better for longer. It binds with the woodgrain on bare or stripped wood, so you don’t have to worry about it affecting the natural look of your woodwork. If you want maximum protection, you can use two coats to make sure you’re well primed and ready to go.

There you have it, two simple products to keep you protected from the elements this Autumn and Winter!
