Pinus Radiata subjected to an acetlyation modification process to obtain a high level of stability.
Untreated hardwood floor.
Stained with Sikkens Cetol WF 771 (floor) or WF 761 (Facade).
Accoya® wood is indigestible to a wide range of pests and an
effective barrier to attack. For example, testing for termites
according to AWPA E1 test standards yielded appearance
ratings always ≥ 9 (Light Attack) versus control sample
averages of 3.5 (worse than Heavy Attack). Weight loss
averaged only 1.43% for Accoya® wood versus control sample
averages of 32.06%.
Processing does not affect the unique properties of Accoya®
wood, as it is modified throughout and not leachable. It is
relatively easy to process and can be compared to profiling
a soft wood species. No special tools are required for cross
cutting, ripping, planing, routing and drilling. Sanding before
finishing is rarely required.
Both load bearing and non-load bearing applications have
been tested using adhesive systems related to laminating,
finger jointing and frame corner joints. While good results can
be achieved with most common adhesives, PU, epoxy and PRF
adhesives give the best results. The results of gluing with
polyvinyl acetate (PVAc) and melamine urea formaldehyde
(MUF) can vary greatly. Specific recommendations for your
project are available upon request.
