Nanotechnology for Wood

Nanotechnology treated woodThe use of nanotechnology is a real innovation in the development of wood coatings, particularly in relation to UV absorbing and penetration. Although wood is naturally durable and strong, the effects of out-door exposure can degrade not only these physical properties, but its natural beauty as well. In meeting this challenge, Nanovations has introduced a new VOC-free technology for clear impregnating wood protection.

The only way to slow the UV degradation of the surface is to incorporate a pigment or a UV stabilizer into the formulation. The colorless, UV-resistant, water-repellent preservative represents the broadest category of clear natural finishes on the market.

Nanoscale UV absorbers offer unique benefits in protecting coatings and coated substrates from being degraded by UV radiation. The small size of the particles makes it possible to offer high protection without affecting the transparency of    the impregnation.
 The  water based nature of the products is a functional and environmentally friendly solution against rot and moos and algae build-up. Water absorption is significantly reduced.   

Utilizing this well-developed science of nanotechnology, the product absorbs the most damaging rays of the Sun’s spectrum, Nanovations Lignol® Wood coatings, protect wood for longer in the harsh solar radiation in Australia and around the world without the discoloring effect of these  rays.   

Nanoscale UV absorber will protect the wood substrate from degrading UV radiation and will increase the lifetime of the coating. These products are most interesting in harsh outdoor environments.




Wooden house -Nanovations 

Please notice:





Hardwood with low water absorption rates and with a density higher than 900 kg/m3 can be difficult to treat. Some of the hardwood in that range like Merbau, Ironwood, Jarrah, Belian for example are not absorbing finishes well , not even solvent based oils. If you select such a wood species for external use, please be aware that if you want to keep the natural look of such a hardwood, more regular maintenance will be necessary. 







Nanovations Lignol technology is now available for Western Red Cedar.

Canadian australian Chamber of commerceNanovations is a Member of the Canadian Australian Camber of Commerce, and is working already with a small number of Canadian      companies in several areas. We are looking for cooperating partners in Canada and Australia for the latest wood coatings technologies for Western Red Cedar.  Don’t protect today’s wood with yesterday’s technology.
