What is Sioo:x?
Sioo:x is a premium wood and surface protection, that results in durable, beautiful wooden surfaces. It uses nature to form a hard silicon based shell on exterior timber, which weathers to a beautiful silver-grey patina.
Sioo:x provides a long-term weathered look without leaving your wood unprotected – and can last up to 10+ years. It’s durable protection for a long time, so you don’t have to repeat the job year after year.
This unrivaled long-lasting wood protection keeps the wood healthy and creates an attractive and easy-care surface.
How does it work?
Based on a technique that was originally developed in Germany in the nineteenth century, Sioo:x is inspired by how nature protects itself using its own natural technology.
This means wood surfaces will not only become more attractive over time – they’ll resist wear, wind and weather in even the most demanding conditions.
Sioo:x is not a coating, but a silicate based wood protection envelope.
The protection system has two components:
Using Sioo:x results in the wood having an even silvery weathered appearance once the protection system cures. This means that the unsightly patchy weathering of exterior wood cladding is no longer a problem.
The resultant cladding or decking looks is almost bleached – a great Scandinavian look.
Inspired by nature and carefully crafted by timber specialists Abodo and Sioo, this technology brings another dimension to lifetime beauty for exterior timbers.
Innovative design is showcased in this timber A-frame summer house, using Sioo:x Natural Wood Coating.
