We are currently stocking Thermally Modified Western Hemlock in a vertical grain 4/4 x 6 in 2 grades, D & better and 85/15.
The deep rich brown tone is a result of the thermal process providing a new product for exterior or interior cladding.
Thermal Modification is a process that heats wood to over 400 degrees F in an oxygen free environment. The high heat removes organic compounds from the cells producing a naturally durable wood that is permanently resistant to water, insects and decay. Thermal Modification also increases the stability of the material.
