The process involves heating timber to a temperature of 180-220 degrees Celsius which darkens the colour. While at the same time protecting it with steam. 100% Natural no chemicals are added.
Thermowood is an environmentally friendly and fully recyclable product. It remains dimensionally stable and the moisture content is also permanently reduced. The moisture content decreases to around 4-6 percent and does not react to changes in humidity drastically as untreated Timber.
The cells of wood are modified and that caused changes in the wood characteristics. Resin is removed from the Timber and the process also decreases water absorption.
No Treatment is required, but can be Painted or Stained if required.
