Table 5 Characteristics of nanocapsules and metallic nanomaterials for wood protection

From: Application of Nanotechnology in Wood-Based Products Industry: A Review

Purpose Properties of nanomaterials
Long-term outdoor performance Light stability (UV resistance)
High transparency with ideal accentuation of the wood grain for highlighted the natural beauty of the wood
Good mechanical and chemical resistances
Long-term durability Toxic to bio-deteriorating agents but safe for human and environment
Controlled release properties
Long-term dirt-repelling Self-cleaning
Water repellent
