Further processed sawnwood, tropical non-coniferous, thermowood and torrefied sawnwood

The manufacturing process of ThermoWood is based on the use of high temperature and steam. No chemicals are used in the treatment. The process improves dimensional stability and biological durability of wood. Another improvement is in the insulation properties of the final material, the process leads to a reduction in thermal conductivity. Due to the high treatment temperatures the resin is removed from the wood.
