Fully compliant with EU Timber Legislation, Kebony technology permanently transforms sustainable wood species such as pine into finished products with characteristics comparable—and in some cases better-performing—to those of precious tropical hardwoods. This unique, patented technology is a process whereby sustainably sourced wood species are impregnated with furfuryl alcohol, which is derived from agricultural crop waste. With the addition of heat, the furfuryl polymer is permanently grafted into the wood cell wall, resulting in greatly improved durability and dimensional stability, making the wood strong and resistant to biological decay and harsh weather conditions.
FSC®-certified, Kebony wood provides architects and specifiers with a product that is unrivalled in its performance, delivering aesthetic value and durability.
