Super Hydrophobic

ProPERLA Wood Impregnator creates a super hydrophobic surface which keeps the exterior wood dry.

A surface is considered super hydrophobic if a water droplet beads up (with a contact angle greater than 150⁰)  and the droplets can slide away from the surface readily.  Super hydrophobic surfaces repel water, causing it to form beads because it is more attracted to itself than the surface. This means water will run off the surface making it extremely difficult to wet.

This is known as the ‘lotus effect’ due to its similarity to the lotus leaf but is also seen on duck feathers and butterfly wings.

Wooden surfaces which have been treated with the timber treatment will respond in the same way – water will form droplets and won’t penetrate the timber.
