Environmentally friendly heat treatment improves the properties of wood
Heat treatment improves the properties of wood. Heat treatment makes wood harder and more durable, and it does not swell or twist.
Heat treatment also allows the capacity of thermal insulation to further improve, so it does not feel hot. Heat treatment also improves moisture, weather and decay resistance.
Only heat and water steam is used in the process of heat treatment. Therefore, heat treatment is an entirely environmentally friendly and chemical-free way of improving the wood properties.
