When should I use wood protection impregnation?
In outdoor areas, you should always use impregnation to protect the wood. It gives the wood the tools it needs to protect itself against external weather conditions. Wood preservatives for outdoor areas penetrate particularly deeply into the surface of the wood, make it water-repellent and thereby protect from both shrinkage and swelling. There are also special wood preservatives on the outside for protection against blue stain and rot. However, a single coat of impregnation is never enough, and a second coat is always required, for example with SAICOS Wood Stain or SAICOS Special Wood Oil. Treatment and wood protection with paints, oils or stains – a combination that makes outdoor woods particularly durable.
