Accoya Benefits

  QUALITY & EASE OF USE

Wood is a natural material and each piece is unique. This is partly what makes it so aesthetically pleasing and yet it can be a source of frustration and uncertainty when looking for guaranteed performance quality.

However, with Accoya wood you can be sure of its consistent quality, durability and dimensional stability.

Wood acetylation is a process that has been studied by scientists around the world for more than eighty years. The Accoya wood production process combines this work with years of proprietary research and investment to deliver consistent results on a commercial scale.


OUTSTANDING DURABILITY

Each batch is analysed and Accoya wood always meets the requirements of Durability Class 1 for Use Classes 1-4 in accordance with EN 350-1 & EN 335-1.


CONSISTENT QUALITY THROUGHOUT

Because Accoya wood is modified all the way through, rather than just at the surface, when it is cut, planed or jointed there are no exposed unprotected surfaces in any dimension.

This completely removes the need to apply additional chemical preservatives as is necessary with unmodified or envelope treated woods.


EXCELLENT MACHINABILITY & EASE OF FIXING

Accoya wood is easy to machine and process manually, creating no challenges for product manufacturers and end users. Accoya wood can be fixed in the same way as other commonly used softwood species.

As with most durable woods, Accoya contains a small amount of acid. It is therefore strongly recommended that corrosion resistant fixings, such as high quality stainless steel, are used.


RETAINED STRENGTH & HARDNESS

The manufacturing process does not compromise the wood’s strength. In fact, the hardness of the wood is increased and because Accoya wood has a high strength to weight ratio, it is suitable for challenging applications – even heavy traffic road bridges.


NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL WOOD

Last but not least, Accoya wood is naturally beautiful. It is comparable in colour to the original source species, so that you can achieve a natural look in your projects if you wish or it may be easily coated in a wide range of colour finishes. The choice is yours.
