Many years ago, people and firemen had understood that burned wood is more durable in open area comparing with the other kind of woods, that is why many people have tried to do some thermal treatment on different kind of wood to make it more suitable for exterior usages.
Finally in 1990th, this process entered to industrial step as a proved method for wood resistance and durability in outdoor usages such as terrace decking boards or cladding and wall panels which could be used in exterior or interior areas.
What is thermowood process?
Different sort of wood such as Pine, Spruce, Ash, Birch, etc. could be thermo treated, then first will be cut in needed profile sizes, then put wood pallets in thermowood Kilns with about 212 degrees centigrade for hours.
In this process, humidity and other inner contains of wood changes and a new product will be proceeded.
After thermo treatment or thermo modifying the wood due to customer’s need, wood profiles will be planed and are ready for outdoor or indoor usages such as decking in terraces, garden furniture, building façade, construction wood and wall panels.
Why thermowood is suitable as a durable wood?
Because of law amount of resinate or gum inside wood, there is no interest in insects to live there or make their nest inside thermowoods. Also wile humidity of thermowoods after thermo treatment are lower than normal wood and a new product with lower humidity is processed, minimum change in wood after installation will happen, then this new product will have least change in its place.
Do we need to do painting, coating on thermowood?
Thermo treated woods are with brawn color naturally which are very beautiful, but UV of sun could change all kind of woods to gray after a while, that is why protecting oils of paints are recommended. In market are found different kind of paints and oils with variety of colors for exterior and interior usages which could help us to make a more pleasant and colorful area for us and our family as well as helping wood panels to be protected against UV of sun.
One point in choosing paint or oil is very important which is its usages for outdoor or indoor, but other choices such as its transparency or color depends on architect designs.
