Wood protection - you have to take care of it every few years
You know the problem for sure: you have to protect wood outdoors from environmental influences such as high humidity, rain and snow again and again and use brushes and wood protection glaze, oil or wood protection paint. Sometimes you have to paint several times in order to have peace for a few years - until the paint slowly flakes off again!
In exposed locations in the mountains, directly on the water and especially on the sea, you usually have to repaint more or less often. Depending on the area, it can take a few hours or even days to make everything weatherproof again.
We say: It doesn't have to be!
Those who have less fun with constant repainting, you will find an alternative in the following paragraphs.

Benefits of AREXAL® HYDRO-Wood
Forms a permanent protection against penetrating moisture. Improves durability, UV protection, resistance to salt water and acids and reduces the flammability of the wood.
Long-term protection after only one application. No multiple brushing, no re-impregnation necessary after x months = significantly reduced work and time expenditure = lower overall costs!
Natural ingredients, without hazardous chemicals. Colorless and odorless - maintains the natural color of wood. For an individual design/coloring of the wood, water-based colors can be applied in advance.
You are now asking what makes HYDRO-Wood so special when it comes to wood protection?
In short, the wood is given a climate membrane - breathable and waterproof. Moisture can still evaporate from the wood, but new moisture can no longer penetrate. It also reduces the flammability of wood, increases its UV resistance and extends its service life. Even acidic liquids such as fruit juices or cola can no longer cause damage. Remaining stains can simply be wiped off with a damp cloth.
In addition, the product penetrates the natural wood pores and bonds with the wood fibers to form a permanent onea permanent protective barrier. This protection is already active after a single treatment and does not lose its effectiveness over the years. In the case of HYDRO products, the surface is additionally coated with a kind of nano-sealing that simply lets rainwater and other liquids roll off ¹.
Save time and enjoy perfectly protected wooden furniture
Now think about it:
Impregnating just once is enough - the best and fastest way to do this is by spraying - how quickly are you finished with it and then don''t have to worry about it for years.
The untreated wood can in front the impregnation can still be stained or treated with water-soluble paint, sso that individual color requests can also be taken into account. HYDRO-Wood itself is transparent / clear.
Fences / gates / chairs / benches / terrace floors / table tops / wooden facades / wooden roofs ... there is so much that can be permanently protected with HYDRO Wood!
As you can see, you can only expect positive product properties from AREXAL®.
HYDRO-Wood - a mineral, because crystalline wood protection = good for the environment.
With the AREXAL® products you can achieve a very environmentally friendly coating with a favorable CO2 balance. The product uses water as an environmentally friendly solvent and otherwise consists of natural basic substances.
Since HYDRO Wood is firmly and permanently bonded to the wood, nothing is washed out - especially not iany harmful chemicals.
The protective effect also increases the service life of the treated wood and the agent is very economical - the consumption is 0.15 - 0.3 liter per square meter.
These are 2 more plus points in the sustainability category. So you get a really green product!
Crystalline waterproofing technology has been continuously developed and improved for over 70 years.
All words are only sound and smoke, we know that too, of course.
That is why it is best to test it yourself.
Order one or more of our small test bottles today and convince yourself of the positive characteristics!
We are convinced that you will be convinced of the AREXAL®-products afterwards and therefore there is also a 5-year manufacturer warranty!
Always read labels and product information before use.
¹ The nano effect can wear off due to environmental influences, but the material protection remains fully intact. If the nano effect is desired in the long term, it must be re-impregnated accordingly.
Features of AREXAL® HYDRO-Wood:
- environmentally friendly
- resistant to salt water and acids
- longer life of the wood
- diffusion-open and UV-resistant
- reduced flammability of the wood
- long shelf life with a single treatment
water, lithium silicates, silanes (catalyst)
Area of application:
Applicable on all untreated wood species except
Wood with high tannin content (e.g. oak), ready for use.
The removal of all old coats is necessary to allow the product to penetrate unhindered. If there is a coating under the applied HYDRO-Wood, this old coating will either be pressed out by HYDRO-Wood or HYDRO-Wood will not be able to bond with the wood fibres and thus will not protect the wood. Untreated wood does not require any preparation. Water based paints must be applied before HYDRO-Wood treatment. Afterwards, no more paint application is possible. It is recommended to protect all metallic surfaces and not to use metal storage containers.
The product can be applied either with a brush, roller, spray bottle or low-pressure gun (max. 5 bar), the outside temperature must be at least +5 degrees Celsius. Shake well before use and do not mix with other liquids (voiding the warranty). Always apply vertical surfaces from bottom to top. If you are not sure whether your object has a primer, try HYDRO-Wood on a concealed area. The yield of HYDRO-Wood depends on the porosity of the wood. Normally, a single application is sufficient to saturate the wood. The wood must be well moistened on each side, if drops are formed or too much has been applied. The penetration depth of Hydro-Wood is 2-5 mm depending on the type of wood and surface structure. Hardwood is more compact, here the liquid penetrates less deeply, so less HYDRO-Wood is needed. Touching is possible after 30 minutes, after 2-4 hours the wood can be walked on well. Complete drying out after about 3 weeks.
Remove excess liquid that no longer penetrates with rubber lip or cloth before curing. Clean tools with water.
Eye and long-term skin contact must be avoided. Wear protective gloves as a precaution.
Should there be skin or eye contact, then plenty of water
When taking the product, drink plenty of water
drink and see a doctor.
Keep out of reach of children.
