The Organowood system is a new eniromentaly friendly wood protection system which mimics the natural fossilisation process to give you flame and rot protection without the use of biocides or heavy metals. This eco friendly wood treatment is inspired by nature but with its simple two part system it is easy and simple to apply and maintain.
Organowood are a Swedish company founded in 2010 that specialise in offering environmentally friendly wood products. The products they offer are based around used silicon based compounds that are bound to wood fibres using organic catalysts. Using this technology allows Organowood to offer a product that not only gives effective fire protection but also has good resistance to rot and fungus. The products are developed in collaboration with the Swedish University of Agricultural Science, Stockholm University and Mid-Sweden University in Sundsvall.
The treated wood is 10% fossil and 90% wood, the resultant encapsulated wood has a physical barrier preventing any rot or fungus from attacking the wood, whilst the material is also non combustible giving the timber flame retardant properties.
