SIOO Wood

Ceramic Materials

How can we protect wood against attack by mould, fungus and insects in a sustainable way? Silicon dioxide (SiO2) is one of the most common substances found on earth and silica-based material has now grown on the market as a durable and natural protection of wood outdoors. One of the mechanisms behind this is that mould and fungus only see “rock”, they find nothing to eat.

Together with SiOO Wood Protection and RISE, we have a long collaboration where we have developed new products and patents for sustainable protection of deckings and facades. Through various innovation projects, we have developed protection of various types of wood based on silicon-based materials with the support of regional (FoU-kort), national (Vinnova) and EU grants (EUROSTARS).
