Utilizing a non-toxic process that alters the wood’s reaction with water, Accoya high-performance wood offers the exceptional durability and dimensional stability of costly tropical hardwood products, but using sustainably sourced softwood. Accoya wood is based on acetylation, a process that effectively changes the free hydroxyls within the wood into acetyl groups — greatly reducing the ability of the wood to absorb water. The wood is suitable for a variety of applications, including siding, decking, and custom window frames.

Editors’ Comments: Toxin-free treatment process essentially turns softwoods into hardwoods, making them resistant to water absorption.
