Thermally Modified Wood Process:
- Drying sticks are placed between the layers of boards then moved to an oxygen-free chamber.
- Moisture is removed from the wood.
- The temperature is increased to 410 F, removing sugars and resins from the wood, collapsing the cells and fusing them togeth-er to stabilize the wood.
- The boards are reconditioned by slowly lowering the temp and reintroducing moisture back into the wood.
The entire process takes approximately 44 hours on southern yellow pine and longer on hardwoods. With the sugars and resins removed, there is no food source for bacteria to grow, preventing rot. When finished, there is a 4% to 6% moisture content, re-sulting in 20% weight reduction. This is all done with heat and water, similar to what a sauna does to the human body when it re-moves impurities from your Body.
A special thanks to EcoVantage of Indiana who allowed us to tour their facility. They pre-coat all 4 sides of their lumber directly after milling with Seal It Green XTREME Clear Thermal Wood Sealer.
