What is the Thermowood?
One of the materials that is widely used in the construction industry today, and its features have made it very popular among designers, is Thermwood. It is a special type of wood that is stronger and more durable than other woods with an advanced heat mechanism. In this article, we will know what Thermowood is and how it is used.
General definition of Thermowood
You must have seen building structures with wood. Many of these structures are eye-catching and beautiful and have many uses. On the other hand, they give a special elegance to the facade of the building or interior decoration. It should be said that in general, no chemicals are used for the production of this product. Thermowood is also very resistant to mold, vermin, termites, bed bugs and fungi. Thermowood, in addition to the above, has a unique stability in color and shape so that it maintains its beauty for years. These features have attracted the attention of designers and building engineers.
History of Thermowood
Examining the history, we realize that every corner of the world has provided part of its services to the world in different fields. In the Thermowood industry, for the first time in the 1930s in Finland, to increase the resistance of wood, they tried to strengthen this material in various ways.
Finland is one of the leaders in the world’s Thermowood industry, which started and started producing this wood for the first time. This action was widely approved and welcomed by other countries.
In addition to that, this country launched a Thermowood technical research center and association named VTT and comprehensively obtained research in this field, and finally the thermal treatment process of Thermowood was developed by the Thermowood Association of Finland and in cooperation with the wood products industry. It entered the market in the form that today Thermwood is produced and supplied according to the research done by this association.
After Finland, Canada and Germany also achieved good progress in the field of Thermowood production.
Thermowood production method
As a rule, special methods should be used in the wood production process to achieve the most ideal quality. In order to make quality wood, some countries tried and tested a lot of wood.
Finally, they decided to use ASH and PINE to produce Thermo wood.
Thermowood is mainly known as a material originating from Finland, but it is worth mentioning that this product is also widely produced in Canada and Germany.
Heat method without chemicals is used to produce this Thermo wood.
As a result, the best quality of this work was achieved by the countries that strived for it. What is certain is that it is definitely not suitable to use any wood to produce Thermwood.
It can be said that the highest quality Termwood wood is found only in some parts of the forest in Sweden and Finland.
This is because this country has special weather conditions and the quality of its trees is different from other parts of the world.
Finland is the leader in Thermowood production and uses many types of wood for heat treatment and Thermowood production.
A variety of different trees are used for Thermowood, but some of them are Picea abies, Pinus sylvestris, Populus tremula, Betula pendula, Fraxinus excelsior, Pinus radiata, Alnus glutinosa, Larix sibirica and Fagus sylvatica are widely used.
Effective factors in determining the price of Thermowood
Type, design, color and thickness, and quality of Thermowood are the main influencing factors in Thermowood pricing.
This effect is very high, and after that, its size and the type of execution of the work at the time of execution determine its price. Sometimes the type of heating process of Thermwood wood can also be involved in the price of wood. The methods of making and polishing wood are done using various equipment and tools, and the type of wood polishing is implemented in different ways, and the raw materials also determine the price of wood.
The Iranian version of this wood has a better price than its Turkish and Finnish models due to its lower quality.
