Luxhammar’s thermal wood modification process uses a PC-based system that monitors and controls the kiln to create uniform batches. Thermally modified wood is rot resistant and stable.
The process control equipment insure that every batch processed meets the quality requirements in regard to physical and chemical properties as well as final moisture content of the wood material.
Thermal modification changes the properties of wood permanently. It improves resistance to decay and to weather, reduces moisture deformations and increases dimensional stability.
The modification level can be chosen according to the requirements of the particular end use. The most common applications for modified wood are exterior constructions such as wall claddings and prefabricated wall elements, terrace floors, garden furniture, window frames, doors, playground, noise barriers and various jetties.
Thermally modified indoor wood can be used for a great number of various purposes such as parquets, wall panels, kitchen cupboards and sauna interiors. It is also suitable for furniture, various accessories and decorative goods. Musical instruments and boats are also being made.
