Wood Lexicon Betterwood Technical terms

thermal wood

Wood with naturally low resistance, which achieves a significantly higher durability with a complex technical process. The material is baked in oil for 24 to 48 hours at 170° to 250°. The result is significantly improved swelling and shrinkage. However, the strength of the wood suffers from the energy-intensive process. Similar to charcoal, it can break easily and become porous. Cracks often form with age.
