Characteristics & Qualities of Wiedehopf Thermally Modified Wood

This process causes chemical and structural changes to occur within the wood, which alters some of its characteristics and qualities. Some of the characteristics and qualities that make Thermally Modified Wood such popular species include:

Dimensionally Stable

The intensive heat the wood is exposed to during its production dries out deep into the core, causing all moisture and resin to be removed from the wood. Thermally Modified Wood, therefore, doesn’t react to changes in humidity as drastically as untreated wood, allowing it to retain its shape far better. The wood also doesn’t secrete sap or resin even in high temperatures.

Environmentally Friendly

The softwood used to produce Thermally Modified Wood originates from well-managed, Forest Stewardship Council-certified forests. No chemicals or foreign substances are involved during its production. Thermally Modified Wood is an environmentally friendly material produced by using only natural methods.

What to Look For – Thermally Modified Wood Siding

Look for the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified wood sources for thermally modified wood. Thermally modified wood can be used in fence, decking, and other exterior wood cladding applications where non-toxic durability is required.

Wood Panel Uses

Modified wood boards are unlikely to warp due to density and lack of swelling or shrinking.

Residential, Commercial, Interior, Signage…

Wiedehopf‘s exterior wood cladding, is a natural product, and thermally modified wood to survive a wide range of changing environments and impacts. Scuffs and chips aren’t as visible on wood cladding as they are on other forms of cladding due to its natural appearance and grain, and it will survive for several years if properly preserved.

Environmentally Friendly

Resistance to Rot and Fungi

Due to the heating process breaking down hemicellulose, the wood doesn’t contain the appropriate nutrients to allow rot and fungi to grow and develop.

Increased Longevity

When wood is treated with heat, its average life span is prolonged. It will depend on the exact heat the wood is exposed to as to how long it is expected to live, but generally, the higher the temperature, the longer the life span.

Improved Insulation

Wood that has been heat-treated is much more porous than untreated wood, vastly improving its insulating properties.

Can be Recycled

Unlike pressure impregnated wood, Thermally Modified Wood can be discarded or recycled as untreated wood when it is no longer required.
