It Water based Environmentally friendly actively repels water, blocking natural decay and warping. Oily threats, such as food or grease, cannot penetrate and cannot stain the natural looking wood. It does not affect the mechanical properties of wooden surfaces. Its water based formulation makes it easy to apply. Water and oil repellency are combined with active ingredients against wood-boaring insects (e.g. termites).

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 What is Nanotechnology?
