WPC waterproofing: Protection for innovative materials
WPC stands for “Wood Plastic Composite”. These innovative materials have become increasingly popular in recent years. They stand for high-precision machinability, low density and natural look and feel. WPC boards are made from sawdust and synthetic resin. They are available as complex shaped pre-products, for example as structured tongue and groove boards. In addition, WPC sheets are also available as slabs and blocks for customers to design themselves.
Benefits of WPC waterproofing from Nano-Care
The waterproofing is the ideal protection of WPC and other wood fiber products against moisture penetration. Moisture is effectively kept outside by the nano coating. However, residual moisture on the inside can evaporate through the open-pored structure of nano coating. The waterproofing gives the WPC panels a self-cleaning surface. The thin-layer sealant hardens strongly and also protects the boards outdoors.
- Sustainable protection against moisture and rot
- Self-cleaning surface due to lotus effect
- Hard nano coating thin layer for high mechanical resistance

Your advantages with Nano-Care
Protection of the uppermost wood fibers
The weak point of WPC blocks and boards are the outer wood fibers. The waterproofing seals these outer wood fibers sustainably and permanently.
Stop rotting due to waterproofing
The WPC waterproofing is waterproof, but allows air to pass through. Thus, it permanently protects against rot.
Self-cleaning surfaces through waterproofing
The nano coating through the waterproofing creates a micro-rough surface. The water droplets run off and carry the dirt particles with them. The result is a surface that cleans itself every time it is wetted.
Fields of application
WPC is popularly used in the following areas:
- Construction of terraces
- Construction of garden furniture
- Construction and covering of carports
The high plastic content in WPC makes it particularly resistant to moisture penetration. However, the outer wood fibers of the material remain exposed to the weather. There, over time, rot and frost can begin their destructive work. However, with lasting protection from waterproofing, your patios, furniture and carports will always remain attractive and like new.Get in touch

Possible applications of the
The WPC waterproofing creates a waterproof coating and protects WPC and other wood fiber products against moisture penetration.
Due to its versatility, you can use our WPC waterproofing in various areas.
WPC panels waterproof
The nano coating of waterproofing is suitable for WPC boards, chipboards and wood fiberboards. It makes the materials weatherproof and protects them permanently against moisture penetration.
As a coating, it is color-neutral, transparent and almost invisible. The surface darkens only a little, and nothing more is visible from the nano coating. Regularly renewed, it can protect even heavily used products made of wood fibers permanently against penetrating moisture. This makes it an effective waterproofing in all areas of horticulture, stable construction or for the front garden.

in model making
The sustainable protection of waterproofing is also suitable for many areas in vehicle and model construction. A wooden model provided with this protection retains its intended technical properties in all weather conditions. Trailers, motor homes and caravans are much easier to maintain thanks to this nano coating. Especially the self-cleaning properties due to the lotus effect are very advantageous for campers.
The poorly accessible upper areas of the side walls and the roof can be easily cleaned with a garden hose thanks to the nano sealing.

Functionality of the WPC waterproofing
The waterproofing is applied to the cleaned substrate. Then allow it to dry and cure. The curing time is approx. 1 day. During this time, do not mechanically stress the surfaces. This applies especially to decking boards, which must not be walked on during this time. After curing, the surface is fully loadable and sustainably protected against moisture penetration.
Apply the waterproofing undiluted with a sponge or a sprayer. After drying, the nano coating becomes invisible.
Wear a mouth guard, eye protection and long-sleeved clothing when applying waterproofing, which can be disposed of afterwards. Although waterproofing is completely non-toxic and ecologically safe. However, it can cause allergic reactions. With comprehensive protective clothing, you permanently eliminate any individual danger when processing the nano coating.
These questions are frequently asked about WPC waterproofing asked.
In all products from Nano-Care, the now banned corridor compounds have been replaced by harmless silicon oxide. Silicon is basically just finely ground sand.
The nano coating is applied with a sponge or distributed with a sprayer. When doing so, respiratory protection is recommended to rule out allergic reactions as well.
The nano coating has a milky white color. However, after drying it becomes clear and invisible. Products treated with the waterproofing darken slightly, but retain their beautiful texture and surface.
The nano coating lasts between 6 months and a year. However, it depends on the amount of use. A normally used patio should be resealed at the beginning and end of the gardening season. For high traffic areas, you should install additional protection, such as artificial turf.
What our customers say
A very professional team!
