Sioo:x Wood Protector is the first component - Step 1 - in the system and is applied twice.
Sioo:x Wood Protector contains silicon, potassium and natural particles of wood and plants. it is strongly alkaline with a pH value of 10.8. By means of the specifically prepared components Sioo:x Wood Protector penetrates wood very easily. It opens up the wood structure and penetrates the microstructure of the wood fibres. It does it so well that it can be used on practically all types of wood.
When Sioo:x Wood Protector dries silica crystals are formed in a network. That is when the effect of Sioo shows - the silver grey lustrous appearance develops over time.
When Sioo:x crystallises within or at the wood fibre, it is reinforced and cemented. It is an effortless and unique process that does not damage the fibres. Thus a layer of silica is created in the wood reinforcing it and making it more durable. At the same time, without tightening the wood, this layer creates a barrier.
The silica layer also reflects heat.
