Accoya is a ‘new wood species’ whose performance credentials have been extensively researched and repeatedly demonstrated. It is a product that has properties, which match those of the best tropical hardwoods, yet, it is manufactured using a non-toxic acetylisation treatment and wood from sustainable sources.
With Class 1 durability, dimensional stability, resistance to mould and insects and ease in machining, the treatment provides a life expectancy externally of 50 to 60 years unprotected with surface coatings. Accoya represents a significant step forward in wood technology. This is the ideal material for exterior cladding, providing improved life expectancy of surface coatings for up to 10 years.
Accoya is the ideal substrate for a range of stains, lacquers and paints due to the consistent finish achieved through the manufacturing process.
