Dually Modified™ Wood Technology

Kebony employs a patented technique to enhance the wood’s strength and longevity significantly. To obtain this, Kebony is using a biobased liquid to modify the wood. Two major actions are happening simultaneously in the wood cell:

1. Active modification

The biobased liquid reacts with OH-groups present in wood and reduces the water sensitivity significantly. This reaction increases the durability of the wood.

2. Passive modification

The biobased liquid forms a polymer that is reinforcing the wood which contributes directly to the strength and hardness of the wood and gives the brown colour.

Thanks to this unique dually modified™ process Kebony is able to replicate nature and produce wood with equal or superior performance of tropical hardwood, in a fast and sustainable way.

Worry-Free Wood Products

Because Kebony permanently changes the wood’s behaviors as compared to natural woods, there is no need to consistently maintain the surface for longevity; you can simply let the
wood naturally gray like Ipé or other Brazilian hardwoods.
