Research has shown that the general consumer is looking for superior timbercoatings that stand up to the forces of nature and wear and tear. They expect long lasting value for money.

Rystix Sales cc, a Port Elizabeth based company, which had been supplying superior exterior-grade adhesives to the laminating and finger jointing industries since 1990, recognised this need and in 1992 cornmenced the development of the Rystix Timbacare range, an ultra long-life, deep penetrating, UV resistant, exterior weatherproof sealer, a top quality interior polyurethane and quite the best quality interior polyurethane floor coating.

To verify its superiority Rystix submitted the exterior sealer to the Council for Scientific & Industrial Research (CSIR) and contracted them to run an accelerated weathering test comparing it to four of the leading locally made competitive products plus the leading imported product. The test results confirmed that Rystix Timbacare out-performed all its competitors including the imported product.

Flowing from this positive test result, Rystix Timbacare has been successfully marketed to many of the leading timber log home and deck builders in South Africa since late 1993.

Field tests using selected manufacturers’ products, including Timbacare, were conducted by the Tsitsikamma National Park on log chalets at the Storms River Mouth Coastal Park, resulting in Rystix Timbacare being accepted on superior performance.

On the strength of Timbacare’s performance at the Tsitsikamma National Park it is now being specified for use throughout South Africa’s National Parks as well as on all the outdoor timber on the Cape Town Waterfront.

Rystix Timbacare is now available through selected retail outlets across a large part of South Africa. The Timbacare range is also being successfully exported to countries such as Zimbabwe, Malawi, Namibia, the Seychelles and the Comores.

Rystix Sales is privileged in having close and mutually respected working relationships with organisations like the South African Bureau of Standards (SABS), the CSIR, the Hans Merensky Foundation and the South African Wood Preservative Association (SAWPA).

Through on-going laboratory research and field testing Rystix Sales has developed a reputation for providing the highest quality products backed by strong technical service and professional advice.
