Can Scyon ™ Trim be stained?
Stains containing linseed oil are specifically designed for wood and may not be suitable for James Hardie cladding products, primed or unprimed.
Semi-transparent stains can vary in uniformity of appearance depending on method of application and conditions and will require a high level of skill and craftsmanship to achieve a uniform appearance.
Clear coats have not proven durable in exterior exposure and James Hardie considers them a maintenance item that may require application of a refurbishing sealer at regular intervals. James Hardie does not warrant the appearance or durability of semi-transparent stains and clear coats.
Does Scyon ™ Trim act as a weather tightness around windows and door openings?
No, appropriate flashing must be installed. Please refer to the appropriate external cladding technical documentation, building codes and standards for requirements.
