Carpentier’s thermo clear pine (HOTwood) is free of knots and an ideal sustainable alternative for tropical hardwood varieties. Its many advantages make it an excellent choice for indoor and outdoor projects.
HOTwood – short for ‘heated outdoor timber’ – is a perfect expression of our sustainable production values.
Our HOTwood clear pine is thermally treated at a temperature of at least 215°C without the addition of chemical substances, using steam to prevent splitting and cracking.
Following this treatment, this type of thermo pine is comparable to hardwood classes I/II, and moreover has better shape retention and a very appealing colour. The stability of HOTwood clear pine also makes it more durable and more resistant to moisture and wood rot.
In time, thermo clear pine weathers to a beautiful, evenly grey colour, a popular classic look.
Our HOTwood clear pine products are covered by a 15-year guarantee.
