Water Repellent & Nano Self-Cleaning Coating

HYDRAWOOD Water repellent and nano self-cleaning coating . It applies to the surface of softwood and hardwood through simple coating process, and it is commonly known as nano coating.

» Water contained in wood is a precondition allowing wood-destroying fungi and insects to prosper inside which leds to decay.The water synergistically interacts with solar radiation and causes atmospheric degradation of the wood surface, as well as dimensional changes and crack formation.

» Nano Coatings increases the natural durability of wood against biotic and abiotic damages on its exterior and provides self cleaning ability to wood surface.

FEATURES OF HydraWood

Super HYDRAWOOD

Hydra Wood Impregnator creates a super hydrophobic surface which keeps the wood dry.

A surface is considered super hydrophobic if a water droplet beads up (with a contact angle greater than 150⁰) and the droplets can slide away from the surface readily. Super hydrophobic surfaces repel water, causing it to form beads because it is more attracted to itself than the surface. This means water will run off the surface making it extremely difficult to wet.

This is known as the ‘lotus effect’ due to its similarity to the lotus leaf but is also seen on duck feathers and butterfly wings.

Wooden surfaces which have been coated with Hydra Wood Impregnator will respond in the same way – water will form droplets and won’t penetrate the timber.
