The ABODO Vulcan products are made from thermally modified FSC certified New Zealand Radiata Pine. The thermal modification process dramatically increases the durability and stability of wood and results in a beautiful rich brown colour, effectively creating a new sustainable, environmentally friendly timber species.
Thermal modification is achieved by using steam and high temperatures in excess of 200 degrees Celsius. Abodo’s unique thermal process uses higher temperatures than typically used to achieve superior durability and stability
Radiata Pine is a popular and versatile softwood that is grown and harvested in several countries across the world, including New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. In its natural state, Radiata Pine is only slightly durable, but it can be modified through a continuous kilning process to increase its durability from class 4 to class 2. This process involves heating the timber to 212 degrees Celsius while protecting it with steam.
The thermally modified Radiata Pine that Brookridge Timber supplies is virtually knot-free, making it an excellent choice for cladding projects where a clean, uniform appearance is desired. The timber has a beautiful golden brown colour with each board exhibiting its own natural grain, and the process makes the timber extremely stable, with very low shrinkage, warping or twisting.
One of the key benefits of Radiata Pine cladding is its durability. The thermally modified timber is highly resistant to decay and insect attack, making it an ideal material for use in external timber cladding applications. The low shrinkage and warping of the timber also means that it is less likely to warp or twist over time, ensuring that your cladding will remain looking great for many years to come.
When left untreated, the thermally modified Radiata Pine will gradually turn a beautiful silver-grey colour over time, giving it a natural and rustic appearance that is highly sought after by many architects and designers.
