TECHNICAL

The Novathermowood Process:
Phase 1: Drying; Temperature of wood is rapidly raised to 100°C. Following this rapid heating, temperature is increased steadily to 130°C, the wood is dried, and its moisture content is reduced to zero.

Phase 2: Heat Treatment; Temperature is increased to 180°C (for Thermo S) or to 212°C (for Thermo D) using steam. After the target level is reached, temperature remains constant for 2 to 3 hours.

Phase 3: Cooling and Conditioning; In the final stage, temperature is reduced to 80-90°C by water spray. This process continues until the moisture content reaches 4 to 6%.
