BBA approval proves Ronseal Trade range ‘does exactly what it says on the tin’

The Ronseal Trade range has been developed to include the most popular exterior and interior woodcare products used by the trade – in a range of colours their customers demand. With BBA Approval also adding that extra level of reassurance, the brand says it provides the “ultimate trade offer”.

Stocking the core products that tradespeople regularly purchase is vital to optimising shelf space in store – and its value. The Ronseal Trade product mix is based on intelligent category management and sales and trends data, to ensure that it includes all of the core products tradespeople are after.

In addition, the Ronseal Trade range also provides customers with added quality reassurance. When surrounded by like-for-like products all with very similar performance claims, it can be tricky to know what one to choose. That is why Ronseal Trade has chosen to put its product range through the British Board of Agrément’s (BBA) testing process.

The BBA is the UK’s leading certification body for construction products and if a manufacturer chooses to send its products to the BBA, they will undergo rigorous testing to make sure that any product claims made by the manufacturer are accurate, and that products can deliver the benefits and results promised.

The BBA test technicians tested over 400 panels of Ronseal-coated substrate (including steel, hard wood and soft wood). For accuracy, each product was applied to the substrate in line with the manufacturer’s instructions. This included precisely measuring the grammes of product being applied – to the right thicknesses and at the right temperature.

Next, the performance of each product was tested, and the tests conducted were relevant to each product and its usage. The technicians looked into factors such as UV ageing to assess fading and colour changes, resistance against peeling and scratches, water vapour permeability, slip resistance and ease of coating.

Every BBA Approved Ronseal Trade product has a BBA logo and reference clearly printed on the front of the tin. It is quick and easy to spot, so your customers can see at a glance that the woodcare they are purchasing will be up to the task.
