COLOUR
THERMOWOOD® DECKING IS A RICH GOLDEN COLOUR SIMILAR TO THAT OF HARDWOOD WHICH IF LEFT UNTREATED WILL FADE TO A SILVERY GREY ONCE EXPOSED TO THE ELEMENTS.
 
TREATMENT
THERMOWOOD® DECKING IS HEAT TREATED TO CLASS THERMO-D AT TEMPERATURES OF 212°c MAKING IT SUITABLE FOR EXTERNAL USE.
THERE ARE THREE MAIN PHASES TO THE TREATMENT PROCESS:
1. USING HEAT AND STEAM THE TEMPERATURE IN THE KILN IS RAISED TO 100°:c. THEREAFTER THE TEMPERATURE IS RAISED TO 130°c ALLOWING THE DRYING PROCESS TO TAKE PLACE AND THE MOISTURE CONTENT DECREASES TO ALMOST ZERO.
 
2. ONCE ThE DRYING HAS TAKEN PLACE THE KILN TEMPERATURE IS RAISED TO 212°c AND THIS CONSTANT TEMPERATURE REMAINS FOR 2-3 HOURS DEPENDING ON THE END USE APPLICATION.
 
3. FINALLY THE TEMPERATURE IS LOWERED WITH WATER SPRAY SYTEMS. WHEN 80-90°c IS REACHED RE-MOISTURISING TAKES PLACE ALLOWING THE WOOD MOISTURE CONTENT TO RISE TO A USEABLE LEVEL OF 4-7%.
