Vulcan Charred is a unique, heavily textured cladding, inspired by the Japanese technique of yakisugi or shou sugi ban. A long lasting char layer is created on the surface Vulcan Cladding, resulting in a deep “alligator skin” effect that provides a sacrificial layer for weathering.
Vulcan Charred is factory sealed after charring with Abodo’s Char Oil, a high solids natural oil design to strengthen the char layer.
Available in shiplap and rainscreen profiles.
Vulcan Charred is a charred finish, which can be coated with Abodo Char Oil for ongoing maintenance.
Available in horizontal and vertical cladding.

Yes. For most profiles, we offer various corner, flashing, fascia and finishing profiles to match the cladding boards. Using these accessories will ensure optimal performance of the cladding system in service.
Cladding is bit more technical than decking, so always consult with a professional before starting your project. A Licenced Building Practitioner is required for install.
Abodo cladding may be face fixed or secret fixed depending on the profile shape. Stainless steel ring shank nails or self-drilling stainless steel countersunk screws should be used in all cases. Generally we recommend to fix boards onto a drained cavity system to allow good airflow and optimum weather protection.
All profiles requires a minimum 2mm expansion gap to be left between boards, you need to ensure all cut ends must are resealed with penetrating oil or sealer. Boards should be coated all sides and re-coated regularly as required thereafter.
