Friendly to humans and the protective eco impregnation of wood

The assignment of most wood impregnations is to hinder the development of break down organisms in the impregnated layer to prevent decay. The composition of the impregnations includes insecticides, biocidal additives, antiseptics necessary to protect the wood from fungi, mould, rot, insects. The highest concentration of hazardous substances in impregnations for outdoor application.

In addition, during outdoor using wooden surfaces are exposed to moisture penetration into the wood fibres, multiple temperature drops, and weathering. As a result of this affecting cracking and deformation of the material occurs.

When apply such impregnations during the painting surface these hazardous components adversely effect on human health and the environment. If during the coating recommended personal protective tools can be used against harmful substances but already impregnated wood adjoins with us for decades.

Decking board protected by CleverCOAT wood after rain

The Nanoformula factory has developed a two-component water-based protective impregnation for external application “CleverCOAT wood” without hazardous components.

The product has all the necessary protective functions of traditional impregnations listed above and additionally imparts water-repellent properties and decorative effects to surfaces. The compositions do not contain oils, petroleum products, organic substance — components that are destroyed by ultraviolet radiation. This protracts the longevity of the protection.

Protection is based on chemical processes with the formation of insoluble complex compounds of potassium and sodium with silicates and sulfates. Such compositions are known and already used for wood preservation. Potassium forms transparent insoluble compounds, sodium forms the same white compounds. These silicates precipitate on the surface of the wood and form a reliable protective layer.

Our task was to transfer this layer inside the wood. For this purpose, silicon was used with a particle size in the nano-dispersed range that it can penetrate into the wood and forming a barrier layer inside one instead on the surface. The transfer of the layer to the inside of the material retains its protective properties during conditions of abrasion: when covering terraces, patios, wooden flooring. In case if other impregnations, for example, based on an oil or acrylic deteriorate relatively quickly and lose their functional properties.

The second important property is vapour and air permeable between the wood material and the external environment. This becomes possible due to the small size of nanoparticles that form a barrier inside the material.

At the same time, the treated surfaces acquire a water-repellent property that prevents moisture penetration into the material and thus prevents the occurrence of defects, disruption of wooden uniformity under repeated exposure to weather conditions. For example, repeated heating and cooling, alternating freezing and thawing, and other influences can cause the material to crack or twist.

This is important for preserving the strength and durability of supporting elements made of wood: beams, columns, supports, arches, trusses, frames, shields, purlins and other wooden structures used in the construction of houses, baths and other constructions and structures.

The first stage of wooden surfaces protection

“CleverCOAT wood premier” is the first protective component of the impregnation. The composition contains nano particles and has hydrophilic property. It easily penetrates into wood. In order to first component can penetrate into the wood no film-forming paints and varnishes must be on the surface which prevent entering the “premier” into the material. In other words, the first component “works” only on unpainted wood.

The using CleverCOAT wood on autoclaved wood increases the last in 4-7 times compared with same wood without impregnation CleverCOAT. The impregnation can be used also on old wood surfaces after oil treatment in the past, if they are uniform and absorb moisture that CleverCOAT wood premier can forms a protective coating inside the material.

Second stage of wood protection

“CleverCOAT wood finish” is the second impregnation component. It forms a durable water-repellent coating o surface that protects the water-soluble “premier” into material against washed out when the protective layer has not formed yet during from two to four months.

The time of forming a protective layer inside a material by the “premier” depends on the type of wood, the season of application and external conditions. However, regardless of the degree of formation of the inner protective layer, the second hydrophobic component allows the using of the coated surface without limitation already after six to twelve hours after applying.

It may be tempting to use only the first or only the second component. In both cases, an acceptable result cannot be achieved. The first hydrophilic impregnation component is easily washed off with water from the surface, and the second “finish” component, which has a water-repellent protective composition, will not be absorbed by the material and will be rejected by the moisture into the wood. Thus, in both cases, no protective layer is formed.

Decorative effects after used CleverCOAT wood

Depending on the type of wood, the “CleverCOAT wood” impregnation can slightly change the original colour of the surface and create a decorative effect.

The soft wood boards impregnated in autoclaves after five to six months after protection with CleverCOAT wood acquire a silvery colour, popular in Scandinavian countries.

Untreated coniferous wood, after impregnation, acquires a yellowish tint, and then within one to two months the colour changes to slightly silvery.

Deciduous woods protection bring the results with various decorative effects. On dark woods (e.g. oak) it leads to a patina that emphasizes the structure of the wood. The surface of light-coloured deciduous woods also takes on a yellowish tint at first, but then within a month the appearance takes on its original state.

Decorative effects of using impregnation on tropical timber is not well understood. It is known that teak has got a cherry colour after treatment which brightens after 6 months.

The factory also produces non-hazardous, water-based neutral tinting additives for colouring protective coatings, which are added to the canister with colourless CleverCOAT wood premier before to applying.

Features of applying impregnation for protection of wooden surfaces

The application of both components of “CleverCOAT wood” doesn't differ from the applying of paint. We recommend using a roller or brush. It is necessary to shake the canisters with each component before application.

CleverCOAT WOOD is produced specifically in canisters and not in buckets. Both components are “sensitive” to each other. When one component enters into the other one, a chemical reaction occurs with little gassing and, unfortunately, with the loss of components as a result of the reaction. Therefore, it is recommended not to use the same tool for “premiere” and “finish”. Well, if there is no second tool, try to rinse it thoroughly with water after applying the premier before using the second component. Of course, mixing both components together will also result in their loss.

Impregnation application is shown in the video. We recommend shaking the canisters with product to obtain a homogeneous composition. Apply one or two coats of “premier” as desired. It is important that there are no missed area and that the layer is evenly distributed over the surface.

A three to five hours pause is required after applying the first component. During this time, the wood absorbs the composition to a depth of 1-3 mm as the surface is not uniform. It is important to avoid the moisture during the pause between the application of the first and second components.

The second component is applied by the same way as the first one. Already in 2 hours after its application, the surface is resistant to precipitation, and after 12 hours, the protected product can be used without limitation.

Both components are water based. It is not recommended freezing the compositions. It can be applied to the surface at temperatures more 5 C.
