Title: Paintability of two Hawaii-grown woods...first progress report

Author: Boone, R. Sidney

Date: 1966

Source: Res. Note PSW-RN-116. Berkeley, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station. 6 p

Station ID: RN-PSW-116

Description: In a test of simulated vertical house siding, robusta eucalyptus and Australian toon panels appear to hold paint as adequately as redwood and Douglas-fir panels after 1-year exposure. The addition of anti-mildew agents to paints seems advisable-particularly in higher rainfall areas. Of the four systems of paint being tested, the self-primed latex appears to be the best to date.
