abstract
The principal objective of the project is to develop non-fungicidal (environmentally friendly) silicon-based hydrophobisation agents and methods to protect wood-based materials against deterioration by micro-organisms and wheather conditions. Improvement of wood products properties by increased hydrophobicity obtained by the use of silicon compounds.
