Accoya offers both the ultimate in value and in style! While some wood species are naturally durable, natural durability is known to be a variable and inconsistent property. Decades of research has gone into developing this material to make it perfect for outdoor use as well as challenging applications. It’s also an environmentally friendly material, which we take very seriously at Brinard. All of the wood used to manufacture timber windows in Matlock is taken from sustainable sources and we are extremely proud of our green credentials.
The process of acetylation makes Accoya timber a high-quality, low-maintenance option for your home.
In the simplest terms, the process of acetylation is essentially subjecting a softwood to vinegar that turns it into hardwood and prevents the cells in the wood from being able to absorb water.
The vinegar is acetic anhydride, so not quite a malt vinegar for your fish and chips!
What is Acetic Anhydride?
Acetic anhydride is made up from Sodium chloride (salt) and dihydrogen monoxide (water) but importantly the reactive organic components are carbon, oxygen and hydrogen, meaning it’s not toxic, making the process of acetylation non-toxic too.
Acetylation also doesn’t cause any meaningful change to the colour of wood whereas processes such as thermal modification which deepens the colour of wood to dark brown.
