These domestic woods: Cypress, Ash, and Hackberry undergo the thermal treatment process in the Southeastern U.S.. With no chemicals added, this is a natural and non toxic wood treatment. The thermal treatment process removes 95% of the polysaccharides from the wood which dramatically increases durability, and hardness, while reducing moisture related shrinkage. Thermally Treated wood is ideal for use in high humidity and moisture areas like poolside, or in basements, kitchens and bathrooms.
The appearance is impressive too! The thermal treatment process enhances the wood’s color creating an even brown tint that is consistent beyond the surface. In fact the color is consistent to the very center of the board!
Are heat treated and thermally treated wood the same? NO! Heat treated wood refers to wood that is heated to 130° F. This is done to kill bugs and larva in the wood. Thermo-treated wood is heated beyond 400° F, changing the molecular structure, resulting in a new generation of wood material.
