PLANT OIL TECHNOLOGY

BETTER TIMBER PROTECTION

Because Ecowoowoil's Plant Oil Technology goes in to your timber and not just on it's surface, it increases the lifespan of your timber by providing superior protection in three ways:

Protection from Dry Rot

Dry Rot is caused by micro-organisms living in the timber. Ecowoodoil not only protects against Dry Rot by the integrity of its barrier on the surface, but also from within the timber by using the traditional natural antiseptics found in Eucalypt Oil, Bees Wax, Gum Turpentine and Pinewood Oil.

Protection from Wet Rot

Wet Rot is caused by moisture becoming trapped in the timber. Ecowoodoil effectively restricts moisture from entering the substrate, yet still permits the timber to breathe. With most other Timber Finishes the moisture becomes trapped - and a broken or worn plastic film will let additional moisture in which then has difficulty evaporating (particularly around the end grain at edges and joins).

Protection from Splitting

When timber becomes excessively dry, it will tend to split and crack, enlarging the amount of surface area that is vulnerable to weathering. Ecowoodoil’s natural ingredients nourish and lubricate the timber from within, restricting cupping, checking and splitting.

Protection from UV Rays

As with all Timber Finishes, coloured pigments not only gives a choice in the final look of the finished timber, but its principal purpose is to absorb Ultra Violet Radiation at the surface. Ecowoodoil’s external finishes have three transparent woodtone colour options. The best option depends on a/ the type of timber and b/ the weathering it has previously been exposed to.

 

Plant Oil Technology not only provides better protection for your timber, but it is far simpler to maintain than using traditional synthetic Oil or Water based finishes. Its is also less harmful to your health and to the Environment.
