Have you heard of our new lumber product that is working its way into the market? Kebony is an environmentally friendly, patented process that enhances the properties of sustainably sourced softwood with a bio-based liquid. The process permanently modifies the wood cell walls, giving Kebony premium hardwood characteristics and a rich brown color in two basic steps: 1) Impregnation and 2) Curing and Drying.

So why is Kebony better than other similar products?

After modification, the wood cell walls are fifty percent thicker due to the stable, locked-in polymers. This permanent modification of the wood cell walls gives the final wood product outstanding stability, the maximum amount of hardness, and a guaranteed long life. Kebony wood also provides a high level of safety as the wood does not splinter and contains no toxins or chemicals, as well as staying cooler in the summer.

Kebony has the same look as its exotic counterparts such as ipe, but it is much easier to work with and can withstand the test of time better than other comparable items. Kebony-treated products are resistant to rot, decay, and pest. Exotic lumber can be rot-resistant, but this is more so part of its natural properties which have no guarantee. Kebony comes with a 30-year warranty against rot and can even be used in marine environments! On top of that, Kebony is also FSC Certified, meaning that it is just as sustainable as it is beautiful!
