What is water-based impregnation, what is wood impregnation?
Impregnation is the process of impregnating the sapwood of wood with various chemicals using special methods. Preservatives are divided into two according to their content. Water-based and synthetic impregnation.
Water-based preservatives are odorless and safe for health.
Water-based preservatives protect against worms, fungi, and mold in wood for up to 15 years. Impregnation protects the wood from the inside and prevents it from rotting. While it allows it to breathe, it allows it to expel the moisture inside and extend its life.
Soft texture woods such as pine can be impregnated. Hardwoods such as Iroko and teak have both natural durability due to their dense texture and the product can't penetrate due to this dense texture. For this reason, hardwoods do not need to be impregnated.
