PLATONOZING: See the unique, 100% clean and sustainable process in four steps here:
During our unique refinement process, the wood is preserved by reducing the moisture level of the wood and by turning the nutrients that are already present in the wood into other chemical connections. Due to this, the wood becomes unattractive for micro-organisms and more dimensionally stable, whilst maintaining all its mechanical qualities!
RAW MATERIAL: UNFINISHED WOOD
The following three main wood components are of importance during our unique process: cellulose (50%), hemicellulose (25%) en lignin (25%).
FINISHING PROCESS STEP1: THERMOLYSIS
The thermolysis is a wet heating of the wood under increased pressure (steam approximately 165°C).
FINISHING PROCESS STEP2: CURING
During this stage we use relatively mild process conditions (< 190⁰C) due to which demonstrable and consistent improvements are achieved. Degradation of celluloses and thus a decrease in wood strength takes place at temperatures > 190⁰C.
