Heat Treated Wood

ThermoWood®

Protection without Chemicals

Thermal modification of wood is a natural method to safeguard it. This process enhances its resistance to decay, weather, and heat, and reduces the wood's movement due to moisture. The treatment involves no chemicals, as it relies on high temperatures and steam.

The procedure unfolds in detail, beginning with a carefully calibrated increase in the wood’s temperature that surpasses the 160°C threshold. This critical phase acts as a catalyst for subsequent protective modifications. Once the temperature reaches its zenith, it smoothly returns to its normal state. This organized heat process lasts between 1.5 to 3 days, carefully controlled by regulating hot air and steam.

In this controlled environment, a profound metamorphosis occurs within the wood’s structure. The heat penetration permeates its fibers, facilitating the removal of water and extractives, such as resins (terpenes). This extraction process significantly remodels the wood, enhancing its durability. The absence of these elements not only protects the wood against the corrosive forces of time but also revitalizes it. Thermo S is being manufactured at the highest temperature of 191°C and Thermo D on the other hand in the temperature of 212°C.
