Posted November 02, 2019 15:02:27The process of using a fence stain is a key component of a stardock fence product, with the cost of this type of stain applied to the fence typically in the range of $1,000 to $2,000 per piece of fence.
The process for using the stardocker fence stain in Australia has evolved over the years to a point where the cost has come down considerably, with prices in some cases dropping by as much as 70 per cent.
In fact, a large majority of Australian manufacturers now use a stain process called fence stain treatment, with companies such as AUSTRAC and Fence and Fences International using the technology to manufacture fence stains for both the home and commercial market.
Stardock’s fences product was developed as a direct response to the growing demand for a high-quality product that was more affordable and environmentally friendly than traditional dye-based solutions, said CEO and founder of Stardock, Darren Woodcock.
“Stardocks fences are a natural fit for our global clientele as they are a durable, high-performing, and highly adaptable solution that allows you to maintain your fence without sacrificing quality,” Mr Woodcock said.
“In the UK, where stardocks products have proven their effectiveness in securing and maintaining fences, the UK Government has taken the initiative to create a ‘stardocks’ scheme for the fencing industry, enabling stardos to sell their products through local dealers and suppliers.”
Mr Woodcock described stardocking as a cross between the old and the new.
“With a traditional dye process, you have to apply the dye, wash it, and then apply it again,” he said.
“But with stardocked, the dye is applied directly to the substrate, which is the main part of the fence, and is applied in an instant.”
This is a huge advantage when you’re working on a project like fencing, where it’s a lot easier to achieve a good quality product with the use of a dye process.
“Mr Woodscock said the technology could be used to achieve even better results than dye-dyeing the fence in the future.”
We’ve been working with a few companies for quite some time now, but we have to keep an eye on the technology and see if we can come up with a solution that can compete with the existing dye process,” he explained.”
If we can achieve the same results as a traditional process, then we’ll be able to go on with our life.
“Stardocker is currently looking at how it can increase its supply chain in the UK and in the US, and how to expand to other parts of the world.”
So it’s an exciting time, we’re really looking forward to continuing to develop this technology.””
If we want to go and grow in the world, it’s not just about making money, it has to be about the environment as well.”
