Value Added Wood Drying System
Heat Modification: Important wood attributes are evaluated based on functionality, appearance and cost. When buying timber, this normally limits you to 1 or 2 of these choices. But SeasonWood is different. By subjecting commodity lumber to steam and high temperatures, we produce SeasonWood.
SeasonWood is wood that is visually enhanced by ‘cooking’ it to a darkened color and improving its performance in dimensional stability and durability.
By heat treating wood to 180° Celsius (Thermo-S), wood equilibrium moisture content is lowered and wood will shrink and swell less.
SeasonWood Thermo-D slows down biological decay rates and offers greater rot resistance when compared to ‘natural’ wood.
Any species, any thickness. SeasonWood has the flexibility to heat treat any wood.
