SurfaPore W Description
SurfaPore W is a water based formulation, speciﬁcally designed to harness the
power of nanotechnology in order to preserve absorptive wooden surfaces. By
making wood water resistant, it assures dimensional stability and protection against
warping and decay. Additionally, it provides oil repellency in order to prevent oily
stains from penetrating wood surfaces. SurfaPore W can provide complete protec-
tion for decking, fences/posts, facade and roof shingles, garden furniture and sheds,
docks or any absorptive wood that needs combined protection and natural appear-
SurfaPore W has been successfully used as an additive (10% dilution ratio) in
pressure-treatment solutions to protect wood. The application of SurfaPore W does
not induce any visible change on the surface applied and does not block the pores
(no pore sealing like traditional varnishes or wood stains). Thus, the breathing
ability of the natural wood surface is preserved.
The formulation consists of three diﬀerent nanoparticles distributions, specially
designed to deeply penetrate into the wood mass. The ﬁnest nanoparticles
