Description

Rubio WoodCream is a breathable hydrophobic wax-based cream that colours and protects wood and makes it water-repellent. The hydrophobic Rubio WoodCream technology in combination with its unique cream structure offers both on product as on application level important benefits. This moisture-regulating cream provides a water-repellent and self-cleaning wood protection. The long contact technology ensures a perfect absorption of the cream into the wood’s pores, without covering them, thus ensuring the wood’s natural moisture balance and structure.

The cream structure of the wax-based cream creates a long contact time of the product with the wood. This gives the capillary effect of the wood enough time to absorb the active water-repellent ingredients. This creates a very deep penetration into the wood, which benefits the durability of the water-repellent effect. This allows the wood to be coloured and made water-repellent in one layer. If you want to achieve a visually more covering colour effect, this can easily be done by applying a second layer without changing the properties of the cream. This technology will ensure the natural look and feel of the wood.

If you want to decrease the colour intensity of the existing Rubio WoodCream colours, you can dilute them with Rubio WoodCream Softener. Adding Rubio WoodCream Softener reduces the UV resistance of the product. This can cause premature discolouration. This discolouration effect depends on the amount of Rubio WoodCream Softener added.

Water Repellent Character For Long-Lasting Protection

Rubio WoodCream is a water-based cream, which makes wood water repellent after treatment. This results in a long- lasting pearl effect. Just like on a duck, after a rainfall the water does not penetrate into the wood, but simply slides off. This pearl effect increases the durability of the wood and also considerably slows down the growth of algae and moss. Because Rubio WoodCream penetrates deeply into the wood and yet is vapour permeable it increases the insulation value of the wood.

Self-Cleaning Function

This pearl effect also has a self-cleaning function. Raindrops slide off the wood immediately and on their way down, take with them whatever dust is on it. It will therefore take much longer for the vertical wood to look dirty.

Cream Structure

Impregnating agents are usually available in liquid form, with a chance of spilling during application, especially on vertical surfaces. Drops will soon land on the underlying wood, on the ground, or on the user’s clothing. Rubio WoodCream is a cream and is very easy to apply on vertical surfaces; especially when you have to work above your head.
