Vulcan Thermowood

Vulcan products are made from thermally modified (TMT) clears grade FSC certified New Zealand radiata pine. Thermal modification dramatically increases the durability and stability of wood and results in a brown colouration– effectively creating a new sustainable, environmentally friendly timber species.

 

Thermal modification is achieved simply by using steam and high temperatures more than 200 degrees Celsius. The real trick to the process is in the cooling and reconditioning phase. This is achieved by using purpose-built computer-controlled kilns that ensure every stick of timber is modified to the correct specification and quality. At the end of the process the chemical and physical properties have been permanently changed.

 

When you add Sioo to Vulcan, you create additional conditions for a long shelf life of the timber and add the Scandinavian idiom to the surface. Sioo’s formula hardens the surface and makes it difficult for growth to take hold, making maintenance processes easier over time. Our patented formula also protects against light rot and in combination with Vulcan’s thermal modification, the wood material has the best conditions for a long life.

 

 

  • Naturally durable in above ground exterior applications = friendly to people and the planet.
  • 50% less swelling and shrinkage than radiata pine = more stable and less movement in service.
  • Extractives and resins driven out of the wood = reduced resin bleed in service.
  • Improved thermal properties = 20-30% better thermal performance than radiata pine.
  • Naturally, improved resistance against light rot = easier maintenance over time
  • Harder surface that reduces cracking and chipping – prevents moisture from penetrating in depth and thus extends the service life
  • Made from New Zealand plantation timber = a truly renewable, carbon negative building product.

 

 

Sioo produces high performance architectural and structural timbers, as designed by nature. We have a deep respect for the material, the people who use it and where it comes from. Our timbers stand the test of time, it is beautiful, durable and sustainable.

 

Vulcan timbers are crafted to be enjoyed for years to come. Designed to age with grace, our timbers have exceptional weatherability and maintain their durability and beauty for a lifetime.

Our timbers are harvested from sustainable plantation forests. They are crafted with respect from beginning to end – allowing us to meet today’s needs without disadvantaging future generations.

 

SiOO:X Vulcan Panel is available in many standard dimensions. It is also possible to send requests on specific orders to us. When delivered the product is ready to mount and need to be saturated with Sioo only after 4-7 years. We produce SiOO:X Vulcan Panel with several different aesthetic designs. In common, however, they are all based on our silicon technology.

The chemical process in the wood develops together with water and gradually matures over time. When the silicon shield begins to grow, the surface becomes beautifully silvery gray. The protection continues to mature over time and becomes stronger over the years.

 

SiOO:X Vulcan Decking is available in many standard dimensions. When delivered the product is ready to mount and need to be saturated with Sioo after 12-18 months.
