Archroma presents new technology


Archroma introduces a Siligen MIH liq, a new biocide-free wood protection technology developed together with the University of Goettingen, Germany.

“Most treatments used to protect wood are based on biocides and can contain potentially toxic substances such as heavy metals,” according to a company statement. “Archroma and the University of Goettingen, Germany therefore decided to explore a solution to extend the life duration of outdoor wood materials, but also their appearance.

“The result: Siligen MIH liq, a non-biocidal wood modification treatment to create more stable and durable solid woods, veneers and wood-based composites for applications such as windows, facade claddings, outdoor furniture, terrace decking, in-ground platforms, parquet flooring and marine applications. It is applied by impregnation and subsequent drying.

“Wood treated with Siligen MIH liq shows excellent protection against decay fungi. Treated wood displays improved weathering performance and keeps its natural appearance with less discolorations and change in feel.
