Thermal modification has proven efficient and ecological in the protection of wood against decay. It also improves the features of sustainable wood, enabling its extended use instead of tropical hardwood. Luxhammar Corporation, a Finnish company specializing in thermal wood modification kilns with almost 20 years of experience in the field brings the benefits of thermal modification to its customers in the wood processing industry.

Thermal wood modification offers a safe, non-poisonous alternative to chemically impregnated wood. It also enables replacing tropical hardwood by wood from sustainable forests in the manufacturing of ecological, yet inexpensive wood products with beautiful, dark colour, good resistance to decay and dimensional stability.

With thermal modification the light-coloured sustainable wood achieves dark tones such as those found in tropical wood. Thus, sustainable wood can be used instead of tropical hardwood in a variety of products, which helps in the conservation of tropical rainforests, says Tero Lallukka, CEO at Luxhammar.

Luxhammar specializes strictly in thermal wood protection kilns. Our customers benefit from our strong expertise. Each type of wood requires a specific formula for thermal modification; we have an own laboratory developing these formulas and offering 24/7 support to our maintenance customers, says Lallukka.

Luxhammar presents its wood modification kilns at the Ligna 2013 woodworking industry fair in Hannover, Germany on May 6th to May 10th, 2013. Please be welcome to visit us in the Hall 13, Booth A26.
