Three-steps to applying the K-Kron II exterior finish system
  1. Before assembly, wood pieces of the window or door are immersed in a preservative with both an insecticide and a fungicide -- helping the exterior wood surfaces resist decay. This preservative meets standards set by WDMA I.S.4-2000.
  2. The windows or doors are assembled. Before installing the glass, two coats of a specially-formulated urethane primer by Akzo Nobel is applied -- helping to seal the wood and provide a bonding surface for the final topcoat. The primer is applied using a controlled-spray process which follows WDMA T.M. 11-2000 guidelines.
  3. Finally, a high performance urethane topcoat is applied. An airless, multi-step, controlled-spray system ensures complete, consistent coverage of the exterior wood surfaces. The result? Beautifully protected windows and doors.

The K-Kron II three-step exterior finishing system follows WDMA T.M. 12-2000 guidelines.
