Comments Off on LigniaXD – The future in timber available now!

Modified timber is a genuine alternative to hardwood, sourced from sustainable forests and treated in a controlled environment to improve performance creating a timber which can often exceed the performance of many traditional hardwoods.  Contrary to popular belief there is an abundance of timber worldwide but most of it is softwood. Whilst softwood is suitable for many applications it is hardwood that delivers performance and beauty.

Just some of the benefits;

  • FSC Certification timber
  • Exceptional coating adhesion properties for durability and longevity of the surface finishes
  • 35 year warranty against rot and fungal attack
  • Variety of colours for oil or stain finishes and also suitable for paint finishes
  • Increased dimensional stability over standard softwoods and hardwoods
  • NO Face finger joints
  • Sourced from managed fast growing forests

There are sustainable sources of hardwoods but they are certainly limited, and otherwise a significant proportion is logged illegally. Ever tighter regulation will only restrict supply further but the demand for tropical, temperate and premium hardwood grows.

Modified timber is a genuine alternative to hardwood. The input timber is sourced from sustainable forests and treated in a controlled environment to improve performance that can exceed even traditional hardwoods. Not only is a sustainable supply for the future assured, it is also plentiful.

There are a range of technologies that modify timber and they will affect performance and colour – or a combination of both – to a greater or lesser degree. What is important is that the outcome is predictable and consistent, yields are higher meaning there is a reduction in associated manufacturing costs.

Because well managed plantation timber is used when modifying timber is available in dimensions much larger than some traditional hardwoods, this can push the design boundaries – unlocking endless possibilities to work with beautiful timber.

And all from certified timber that meets all the regulations in terms of both managed sustainable forestry and legal ownership.
