Tantimber's Advanced Woodworking Processes
Tantimber products are subjected to high-quality thermal modification at international standards. Thus, products gain endurance to all climate and weather conditions. Thermal modification process (Thermally Modified Timber - TMT) is the process of minimizing the dehumidification and deformation behavior by raising internal temperature of the wood above 200 C. As a result of decomposition of bonding water (relative humidity - OH Groups) contained in the wood, products reach to the maximum resistance against climatic constraints, become resistant to the fungal growth and decay. TMT is a natural process in which no chemicals are involved. It does not leave a toxic residue on the product.
Tantimber implements advanced process steps defined in high quality standards during thermal modification processes and at all stages of production. Thanks to the release of the relative humidity in the timber; TMT products have moisture resistance, resistance to decay, and maximum dimensional stability in outdoor weather conditions. Tantimber products are listed in Biological Durability Class 1 and Class 2 according to European Technical Norms EN 350-2 and EN 355.
