Sioo:x are developers and suppliers of wood protection products using silicon technology. Sioo:x is an environmentally-friendly, water-based system to protect wood.
Sioo Wood Protection AB are headquartered in Gothenburg. We have produced a significant breakthrough in wood protection technology which solves the traditional problems of caring for wood. Sioo:x natural ingredients centred around the mineral silicon combine to quickly protect many species of wood enhancing both appearance and performance.
Sioo:x has been specified in Scandinavia by world leading architects and end users for over a decade because of its unique combination of advantages, particularly its sustainability and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
The strength of the SiOO:X products in giving long life protection against: uneven weathering and discolouration; the impact of algae, fungus, spore and surface rot; splintering of the timber surface; poor ultimate protection of people, animals and the environment; is being seen and sought after. SiOO:X treated timber is beautiful to look at and it gets brighter, not darker, with age.
