Hydrophobic and oleophobic effects can be achieved on wood surfaces using fluoroalkyl silanes. Particularly effective is the product Dynasylan® SIVO 121. The product is UV-stable, water-borne and ideal for non-film forming surface treatment. The natural feel, touch, beauty, and smell of the wood remain unchanged, whereas water and oil are repelled by the treatment.
Dynasylan® SIVO 121 is normally applied to uncoated wood surfaces and generates a hydrophobic and easy-to-clean effect on the surface of the wood.
As it is not a coating, it is almost invisible and does not leave a layer on the surface. It penetrates into the material and is breathable (not impermeable to water) and avoid trapped moisture.
- UV stablility
- Lower sensitivity of the wood surface to the attack by microorganisms
- Significant reduction of mold growth
- Water and oil repellency
- Surface protection from the effects of weathering
- Easy application
