Whether you’re a property owner, architect, or designer, searching for natural, high-performance materials for outdoor use can become challenging—especially when you need materials that offer a relatively long service life. Any wood product you specify must resist rot and maintain its beauty with minimal maintenance.
Some woods are easily susceptible to rot, swelling, and shrinkage, and can become a feeding ground for termites and other insects. Often, designers turn to tropical woods for their natural rot and termite resistance, but the sustainability of those materials is questionable. If you’re in the market for high-quality wood with the best environmental credentials that also stands the test of time, acetylated wood may be your ideal solution.
In this whitepaper we take a look at:
