Falu Rödfärg Träfasad is a modern linseed oil-based house paint with similar properties and appearance to our Original residue pigment paint. It’s an alternative for anyone who wants the feeling of Falu Rödfärg Original, but is limited by the colour of their building was previously painted in. The paint is easy-to-work and is available in nine timeless colours, and which gives a beautifully matt surface that allows the wood to breathe and move in a natural and healthy way.
The linseed oil base in Träfasad means that the paint – unlike residue pigment paint – can be applied on more types of substrate, for example on wooden surfaces with aged alkyd, linseed oil paint or on old residue paint that is ready for repainting. Träfasad also adheres to unpainted surfaces of both unplaned and planed wood.

Falu Rödfärg Träfasad is a modern house paint that provides the right matte surface in colors that interact with the Swedish landscape. The paint is intended for all types of wooden facades and is just as easy to work with as Falu Rödfärg Original. It is a waterborne dispersion paint based on linseed oil.
Normally, approximately 10-12 years should pass between repaintings. Much also depends, of course, on how exposed the facade is and direction; one side of the house can do well for 15 years and a very exposed facade may need new paint after 6 years.
Falu Rödfärg Träfasad is a modern way of painting with tradition. Falu Rödfärg Träfasad is a waterborne diffuse open paint based on linseed oil. It is very simple and can be used to paint with both new and previously painted facades. 1 litre of paint is enough for approximately 6-7 m². It can be applied to both unplaned and planed wood.
The paint has properties of linseed oil paint and an appearance reminiscent of our residue pigment paint. For example, the finished paint layer does not form a dense film but allows the wood to breathe naturally, which means that moisture is not trapped inside and helps avoid rot. Unlike pure linseed oil paint, Falu Rödfärg Träfasad has higher breathability, which removes the risk of so-called linseed oil blisters.
The linseed oil base in Träfasad means that the colour can be painted on more types of substrate, for example on wooden surfaces with aged alkyd, linseed oil paint or residue pigment paint, as well as on unpainted surfaces of both unplaned and planed wood. However, it is not recommended that it be used on surfaces previously painted with so-called acrylate paint. Acrylate is “thermoplastic”, which means that it moves at different temperatures and thus gives rise to cracks and flaking.
Träfasad comes in nine colours that are carefully selected. The colour is designed to interact with the landscape in a balanced and natural way. These timeless colours reflect a centuries-old tradition. And with its unique character, it helps create new, classic architecture.
If other colours are desired, the different colours can be mixed together to achieve the desired shade. Falu Rödfärg does not provide mixing recipes.
New untreated or factory primed wood is brushed clean of dirt and dust. On previously painted surfaces, all loose paint and wood must be removed with a scraper or wire brush. In the presence of, or risk of, mold spores, it is very important that the surfaces are first treated with a mold-inhibiting agent before brushing away any loose dust. The surfaces are washed with the appropriate type of facade wash. Stir the paint thoroughly. On new, untreated wood, the paint is diluted with 10% water for the first coat. Allow to dry for 48 hours. Then apply once with undiluted paint. Previously painted surfaces are normally painted once with undiluted paint. On heavily exposed surfaces, for example surfaces with a south or west orientation, it is advantageous to apply an additional coat for greater durability. For different batch numbers, change the can at the corner of the facade to avoid shade differences. After painting, as much paint as possible is wiped off the tools before being cleaned in water with a little detergent.
