Hauser’s Enviroshield Finishing Systems have been developed over decades of outdoor experience in diverse environments and operating conditions. We leverage both in-house and external testing, and capitalize on technical innovations to continually improve our process to satisfy our customers’ changing requirements.
We employ a comprehensive 6-stage pre-treatment process, material-specific anti-corrosive plating and coating, and optimized application of UV-stable, TGIC-free HauserKote powder coating on each of our products.
Why TGIC Free?
TGIC is toxic! Although many manufacturers still use TGIC (triglycidyl isocyanurate) powder coating, TGIC is a Category 2 mutagen. As a result, it is now classified as a toxin and cannot be used in certain regions. TGIC is known to cause skin sensitization in some people, which can lead to severe skin rashes. Respiratory sensitization is also a concern. Exposure occurs by breathing in dust containing TGIC, by skin contact and by ingestion. Ingestion can be caused by contamination of hands, food and drink, and following inhalation. As a result many companies in the European Union have stopped applying this material, and this practice will propagate to other regions as well.

Hauser uses Brazilian Ipe hardwood sourced from environmentally managed, sustained-yield forests. Ipe is highly durable, resistant to insects and weathers all environments (Ipe was used for the boardwalk along the beach of New York City’s Coney Island, and was said to have lasted 25 years before it need to be replaced: an amazing lifespan given the amount of traffic and environmental stresses put upon the wood). Ipe adapts to the humidity of the installed environment and weathers naturally to a grey patina. Click here to download the Janka Hardwood Rating Scale (PDF) from our Hauser Resource Library.
All our teak originates from sustainable plantations. Hauser uses raw grade A teak giving the option to either let the wood naturally turn grey over time with exposure to the elements or seal/stain it a color of your choosing. Grade A teak is dense with a high resin content that allows it to withstand extreme temperature changes without cracking.
Bamboo is one of the fastest growing, renewable resources in the world. With properties comparable to hardwood, it is an ideal alternative to tropical hardwoods. Why use Bamboo on Hauser Site Furniture? Because Bamboo provides sustainable forestry as the Bamboo plant does not die after harvesting. Bamboo has been included in the FSC system since 2008, and certification can be provided, if requested. Production of our Bamboo product complies with the most stringent quality, and health & safety procedures (ISO 9001, FSC, ISO14001). The longer the lifetime of a product, the lower the environmental impact will be. Bamboo products score very high on durability factors (hardness, density, stability, etc). At the end of its life cycle, bamboo is easily recycled as a resource to make chipboard, or it can be burnt in a biomass energy plant to create green electricity (reducing fossil fuel consumption). The use of Bamboo products on Hauser Site Furniture can contribute to LEED credits for your project!
