Accoya®

Accoya® wood is the result of decades of research and development that has brought together a long-established, extensively proven wood modification technique and leading-edge patented technology–acetylation to create a high performance wood, ideal for outdoor use and challenging applications.

Overview

Created from sustainably-sourced wood, Accoya® undergoes a proprietary, non-toxic acetylation process that permanently modifies the wood to the core. The result: an environmentally friendly solid wood with durability, dimensional stability and beauty that matches or exceeds even the best tropical hardwood. Accoya® wood is sourced from sustainable sources, including FSC, and has class-leading environmental credentials such as Cradle to Cradle™ Gold certification by the highly prestigious McDonough Braungart Design Chemistry (MBDC) organization.
Accoya® wood is perfect for demanding applications such as windows and doors where it is important that tolerances are tight yet, regardless of the conditions, they open year round.
Accoya® is perfect for cladding and siding where wood's natural beauty is desired, but sustainability and high performance are of the utmost importance.
In decking, where it is important that boards do not warp, twist, bow or split, Accoya® is up to the challenge.

Main Uses

Accoya® wood is perfect for demanding applications such as windows and doors
Use of wider cladding boards is allowed by the improved dimensional stability, Siding joints do not open, tolerances remain tight and twist is prevented. Decreased overall life cycle cost thanks to the improved coating life and timber durability. The wood’s natural appearance is retained for longer, thanks to the superior resistance to the effects of UV exposure.
