Wood is one of the most important construction materials.
Unfortunately, it is susceptible to water absorption or water vapor,
resulting in cracking, deformation, decay and insect-damage, so it must be protected against their influence.
One possible efficient solution would be to prepare a superhydrophobic coating for the surfaces of wood timber to prevent water adsorption.

Inspired by natural Taro leaves, superhydrophobic coatings increases its durability and extends the time of its use, thus reducing the cost of maintenance.
Just like water droplet on the surface of Taro leaf, there will be almost zero residues of water on the surface when the water droplet flew, as the result it will give a better water protection.

The migration of metals (As, Hg, Cr, Pb, Ba) of the sample was tested according EN 71 Part 3 1995.
There was no evidence for migration of the named metals above the limit of detection (10-50 ppm).
All products for the interiors are correspondingly suitable for toys.

Woodlam Indonesia Taro are tested in neutral laboratories, e.g. by the Institue of Biological Building Materials in Rosenheim and are approved and certified. The impact on the health of people and environment of the methods of production and the products that are used for building, furnishing and living is examined.

The VOC Directive, devised by the European Parlament and the Council of Europe, defines the directive limiting emissions for certain pollution causing volatile organic compounds, called VOCs.
Woodlam Indonesia Taro products meet the VOC Directives for 2007 and 2010.
