Specifications

Moisture Resistance:

The technology behind Tricoya® wood elements is based on wood acetylation, a process that has been studied by scientists around the world for more than 80 years. The effect of altering the wood’s chemical structure through acetylation is to create a new product that is modified right through the cross section, leaving it more dimensionally stable and, because it is no longer digestible, extremely durable.

Acetyl groups are already naturally present in all wood species as well as in humans and other mammals. This means that the manufacturing process adds nothing to the wood that does not already naturally occur within it, resulting in a product with no added toxins.

Tricoya® is slightly hydrophobic compared to standard MDF meaning it will repel water. The stated drying time by coating manufacturers for water-based coatings may need to be increased. The hydrophobic properties may affect the application of other products.

Durability and Rot Resistance:

Tricoya® is uniquely decay, fungal and insect resistant. With long lasting characteristics and unmatched dimensional stability, the acetylation process enables Tricoya® to achieve Class 1 durability, leading to resistance to biological decay which exceeds western red cedar and other durable wood species. Tricoya® has termite resistance meeting UC4A ground contact requirements and performs better than hardwoods for example from western red cedar and Burmese teak.

Fire Resistance:

Tricoya® is classified as meeting a Class C flame spread rating by the ASTM E84 method.

Sustainability:

All wood used in the Tricoya® production process comes from sustainable sources such as FSC certified, reclaimed or recycled timber. The proprietary Tricoya® acetylation process minimizes decay, giving that wood a product life of 70+ years, meaning generations of new trees can grow while keeping that carbon safely locked in a useful form.

Tricoya® wood fibers are blended at the MDF mill with zero formaldehyde resin to produce a no added formaldehyde finished product.

Warranty:
