The natural wood preservative specialist, OrganoWood?, has launched OrganoWood? Protection 01, a unique and environmentally friendly wood protection system that offers rot and flame protection. Suitable for use on solid wood, particleboard, MDF board, plywood and Masonite board, the product is ideal for environments where external wood protection needs to be strengthened.
As well as enhancing the timber?s resistance to rot and fire, the treatment offers a natural bleaching effect, giving the wood a silvery hue over time. A tried and tested ecological alternative to pressure treated finishes, OrganoWood? Protection 01 is both aesthetically pleasing and sustainable, and is suitable for domestic and commercial use.
Made from silicon minerals and natural plant compounds, OrganoWood? Protection 01 is a water-based wood treatment product that is completely free from organic solvents and heavy metals, such as copper, chromium and arsenic (CCA).The finish creates a physical barrier, to prevent fungus from attacking the wood and provide timber flame retardant properties.
Available in 1l, 5l and 10l bottles, OrganoWood offers an approximate coverage of 8-10m? per litre, and is available to be stocked in garden centre.
Before application, the surface should be cleaned with a wood cleaning product. To apply OrganoWood? Protection 01, simply brush the finish in the direction of the fibres of the wood. This ensures the wood absorbs the finish.? By leaving it to dry for 6-10 hours, the finish hardens on the surface. OrganoWood? Protection 01 is fixed inside the wooden material thanks to its unique formulation which changes its properties during the drying process and binds it to the fibres. When the drying process is complete, a physical barrier of silicon molecules is formed around the fibres, protecting the surface from fungus and fire.? It is recommended to complete the process by applying OrganoWood? Repellent 02 for protection against dirt and water.
Steve Grimwood, managing director at OrganoWood UK, explained: ?Now available to the UK wood finishing market, OrganoWood? Protection 01 provides an unrivalled natural protection against fire and rot decay.
