What is Kebony?

Kebony is a beautiful wood recommended by leading architects. It is sustainable, durable and requires no maintenance beyond normal cleaning. Kebony’s performance has been proven in a variety of applications including decking and cladding.

Developed in Norway, the Kebony® technology is an environmentally friendly, patented process, which enhances the properties of sustainable softwood with a bio-based liquid. The process permanently modifies the wood cell walls giving Kebony premium hardwood characteristics and a rich brown color. After exposure to sun and rain the wood develops a natural silver-gray patina. Performance is maintained, while beauty is enhanced. Kebony is available in clear and character grade.

Recognized as Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum and listed as a Global Cleantech 100 company, Kebony has been embraced by leading architects, designers and developers, which are served through a global sales and distribution network.
