What is Thermally Treated Wood?
Thermally treated wood, also known as thermally modified wood, is a type of lumber that has undergone a heat treatment process to improve its properties. This process involves heating the wood to high temperatures, typically between 160 to 250 degrees Celsius (320 to 482 degrees Fahrenheit), in the absence of oxygen. The aim of this treatment is to enhance the wood’s durability, stability, and resistance to decay, without the use of chemical preservatives.
Key benefits and characteristics of thermally treated wood include:
- Increased Durability: The heat treatment alters the cell structure of the wood, making it more resistant to rot, decay, and fungal growth. This extends the lifespan of the wood when used in outdoor or moist environments.
- Improved Dimensional Stability: The process reduces the wood’s tendency to swell and shrink with changes in humidity, resulting in less warping, cupping, and twisting.
- Enhanced Aesthetic Appeal: Thermal treatment often darkens the wood, giving it a rich, uniform color and an attractive appearance.
- Eco-Friendly: Since no chemicals are used in the process, thermally treated wood is an environmentally friendly option compared to chemically treated woods.
- Reduced Maintenance: The enhanced durability and stability mean that thermally treated wood requires less maintenance over its lifetime.
- Versatility: It can be used for a variety of applications including decking, siding, flooring, and outdoor furniture.
- Improved Insulation Properties: The heat treatment can slightly improve the wood’s insulation properties.
- Lightweight: The process can reduce the wood’s density, making it lighter than untreated wood of the same species.
Thermally treated wood is ideal for applications where the natural beauty of wood is desired, but with enhanced performance characteristics that reduce the need for maintenance and increase longevity.
