SiOO:X is a patented Silicon technology, which is applied in two parts – SiOO:X Part 1: Wood Protector & SiOO:X Part 2: Surface Protector. In addition to the protective benefits of the treatment, SiOO:X to develops a beautiful silver grey colour as it cures, similar to the natural weathered look, over a period of several months.
Please note: Two coats of Wood Protector (Part 1) and one coat of Surface Protector (Part 2) of the SiOO:X treatment MUST be applied as per the application instructions.
For use in external above ground conditions; timber cladding or decking should be selected for its natural durability with minimum durability Class 3 (according to BSEN 503-2).
How a façade weathers is dependent on the location, design and the species of timber used. Facades which have not weathered evenly may be deemed unsightly due to inconsistent colouration. A common example of this is when boards protected by the building’s eaves maintain their natural colour whilst more exposed areas of the building weather down to a grey colour. SiOO:X is a solution to this problem. In the months following application all boards will turn the same tone regardless of their colour and exposure to the elements prior to application, resulting in a desirable, uniform silver grey appearance.
