TMT Marine ®

It's real lumber with high tech process for your exclusive project

DECK PLANKS - MARGIN PLANKS - CAPPING RAIL - SHEER RAIL 

We have been developing TMT marine® after a large experience in the thermotreated market, selecting the best quarter sawn planks, and modifying the processes to get a final color that matches what the market is familiarized. The result is a superb performance lumber without comparison.

-Environmentally friendly 

-Less shrinkage than most of the well-known timbers

-Crossing positively all the gluing and aging tests of Sikaflex & Bostik sealants

-Much more resistant on fire than regular woods

-Amazingly attractive for the exclusive marine market 

THE BEST & MOST EXCLUSIVE LUMBER FOR MARINE EXTERIOR APPLICATIONS

TMT Marine ® IS DURABLE FOR A REASON

 

TECHNICAL DETAILS

Heat treatment increases the stability and durability of wood.
Wood is composed of 50% cellulose, 23% hemicellulose, 20% lignin, and 7% other organic compounds, called extractives. Heat treatment removes resin, other extractives and their attached OH (Hydroxil) groups from the wood.
This process reduces water absorption of wood, consequently increasing decay resistance while decreasing swelling and shrinking. Another factor that contributes to the high durability of wood is the crystallization of cellulose. The change in hemicellulose increases the durability. Hemicellulose is separated into furfural and carboxylic acid. Caramelization of lignin, caused by heat, results in a darker color.

The products treated with the TMT Marine® method are;
100% natural: The wood is free from resin and chemicals. No chemicals are used during the production process.
Ecological: Products contain no environmental or health hazards. They are produced from renewable forests, are environmentally friendly, sanitary, recyclable and durable.
Durable: Thanks to its low water absorption, TMT Marine® maintains its durability in all weather conditions. It is longer lasting than regular wood. Low moisture content also prevents decay and fungi growth.
Stable: Bending and twisting characteristics are reduced, compared to ordinary wood.
Uniform: Heat treatment turns the wood into an uniform color. Compared to regular wood, TMT Marine® also keeps its varnish and paint better.
Insulating: TMT Marine® provides 25% more heat and sound insulation compared to regular wood.
Safe: Is 30% more fire resistant than regular wood.
Insect-proof: TMT Marine® is completely protected from insects due to its low moisture content.
