Evercrete Everwood (EW)

 

Evercrete EW is an environmental friendly, non-toxic, non-flammable, penetrating alkali activated silica aero gel that seals, hardens, and preserves most wood products. Evercrete EW has the ability to extend the lifetime of most wooden structures and elements through hardening, preserving and sealing. Evercrete EW will improve the durability of timber against fungus, mold and insect damage. It hardens the surface, increasing both strength and abrasion resistance. Evercrete EW will not alter the texture or other physical characteristics of the wooden surface to which it is applied. It also provides a prepared surface for better bonding of varnish, stains, paint and mastics. Evercrete EW is highly effective and versatile in a wide range of commercial, industrial and residential applications. Evercrete EW helps wood retain its natural color much longer.

 

Upon penetration, the catalyst in Evercrete Everwood reacts with the alkali and acids present in most wood cells, forming an aero silica gel membrane on the surface of the cell walls. This membrane forms an internal seal and barrier against water and other causes of deterioration. Over a period of time the silica gel membrane hydrates and hardens into a crystalline structure within the wood leaving a clear natural finish and no film or membrane on the wood surface. Evercrete Everwood needs only be applied once for a lifetime of protection.
