Accoya® – Innovation in wood
Accoya® wood is a long-lasting, non-toxic wood, sourced from sustainable FSC® certified wood. It is a high-performance wood, ideal for outdoor use and challenging applications.
Accoya® wood is based upon acetylated wood technology. Modifying the chemical structure of natural wood it changes the free hydroxyls within the wood into acetyl groups. As a result the ability of wood to absorb water is greatly reduced, rendering the wood more dimensionally stable and extremely durable.
Thanks to its outstanding durability and other benefits Accoya® wood has been certified repeatedly for its sustainability.
