Sioo have extensive experience in protecting timber decking structures, on extended living and outdoor leisure spaces, on jetties and marine structures and on boat decks. The treatment has been proven in the most demanding environments and applications have been in the field for long time periods.
The SiOO:X attributes of being totally environmentally friendly using only naturally occurring elements complements the renewable and biodegradable benefits of using timber. SiOO:X is entirely free of harmful biocides and can be used with complete confidence to treat wooden surfaces which are touched by people, pets and wildlife. Sioo:x is used to protect wooden structures in conservation areas.
SiOO:X penetrates the wood and develops a light satin like lustrous surface that is pleasant to touch and walk on, even barefooted. Apart from the surface being beautiful, it also is a barrier to algae, mould and rot from gaining a hold in the wood. The surface is very easy to wipe down making maintenance simpler.
On decking surfaces that receive heavy wear, the SiOO:X treatment gives particular benefits in reinforcing and strengthening the wood surface reducing cracking and splinting. The durability of some of the softer timbers is enhanced making them candidates for use as decking material.
SiOO:X is very easy to apply - it is applied once as against the necessity of annual treatments with oils and gives a lower lifetime cost.
