The effect is due to the properties of the mineral silica. In effect the the method imitates how nature itself protects wood by petrifaction or creation of fossils. The SiOO:X system only contains natural ingredients which are biocide and emission free.
SiOO:X penetrates the wood and gives a light surface that is pleasant to touch and walk on in the case of decking. Apart from the surface being beautiful, it also is a barrier to algae, mould and rot from penetrating the wood. The surface is very easy to wipe down making maintenance simpler. The SiOO:X treatment reinforces and strengthens the wood surface and is very easy to apply. It is applied once as against the necessity of annual treatments with oils.
The system gives major advantages in: providing long life protection, minimising life time cost, providing all round UV protection with even colouration, toughening the wood surface and developing a beautiful natural silver grey nuance as the timber matures.
The system carries EN 113 classification against fungi and the EN 46 classification against vermin.
The chemical process is described as a mechanical effect without the use of biocides. It is a passive protection mechanism.
