Sature

What if we could put strength back into nature?

What if we could take wood, the most sustainable building material in the world, combine it with silicate, one of the most common, nontoxic minerals on earth and make the wood last longer – and be even stronger!

“ We have created an environmentally friendly and nontoxic silicate modification process that allows you to strengthen the wood and make it more durable – in other words make it stronger and last longer. ”

This task and mission of finding a new modification method with silicates that can replace the traditional pressure impregnation of wood has resulted in the birth of SATURE – Strenght of nature.

The long and extensive research and testing process has finally come to the stage where we want to tell the rest of the world about this great news.










Silica (1)

ENVIRONMENTAL CONSIDERATIONS

Silicon (14Si) is the second most abundant element on Earth. Approximately 25% of its crust is silicon. Sand and quartz are well known minerals based on silicon. Silicon is inert and inorganic and thus not subject to biological degradation itself.

Sature MODIFICATION PROCESS

Sature Process Ikoner

Step 1

The wood is placed in a special steel autoclave

Sature Process Ikoner2

Step 2

All air is evacuated

Sature Process Ikoner3

Step 3

The autoclave is flooded with the modified silicate solution and hydraulic pressure applied

Sature Process Ikoner4

Step 4

The pressure distributes the silicate in the wood

Sature Process Ikoner5

Step 5

Excess liquid is pumped back into the storage tank and a final vacuum is applied

Sature Process Ikoner6

Step 6

Drip-free and surface dry Sature is ready for post treatment processing
