Lunawood® Profiles

PROPERTIES

IMPROVED NATURAL DURABILITY

Due to the breakdown of hemicellulose (sugar chains), the wood no longer contains sufficient nutrients to
support fungi which cause decay (KOMO certification). Field tests for termites conducted in Australia have demonstrat-
ed that Lunawood products are resistant to termites. This is due to the sugar chains which are the termite’s food source
in timber fibre being reduced to levels below the food source threshold .
It is still recommended that appropriate termite barriers are installed to the Australian standards.LunaThermo D-class
thermowood has a decay resistance class of 2 (durable) (EN 350-2). Wood products with decay resistance
classes of 1 and 2 are suitable for outdoor use without any additional treatment.

IMPROVED DIMENSIONAL STABILITY

After thermal modification, the moisture content of the wood decreases to around 4-6 percent. The equilibrium moisture content is also permanently reduced as a result of thermal modification. The equilibrium moisture content of ther-mowood® is about half that of untreated wood.
As a result of this lowered equilibrium moisture content, thermowood® does not react to changes in humidity as
drastically as untreated wood. In practice, this means that thermowood® is dimensionally stable and retains its shape far better
than untreated wood and no chemicals are added whatsoever.
During the process, steam acts as a protective gas and prevents the wood from splitting and becoming damaged during treatment.

NON-TOXIC AND CHEMICAL-FREE

Lunawood® Thermowood is a beautiful wood material produced using natural methods. Only heat and steam are used in the manufacturing process and no chemicals are added whatsoever.
During the process, steam acts as a protective gas and prevents the wood from splitting and becoming damaged during treatment.

IMPROVED THERMAL INSULATION

Tests have shown that the thermal conductivity of thermowood® is reduced by around 20-25% compared with untreated coniferous wood. As a result, Lunawood® is an excellent choice of material for exterior doors, cladding, windows and saunas, to name just a few applications.
