Carpentier thermo pine with knots (HOTwood) is a great sustainable alternative for tropical hardwoods and suitable for a wide variety of indoor and outdoor projects.
HOTwood – short for ‘heated outdoor timber’ – is a perfect expression of our sustainable production values.
Our HOTwood pine with knots 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, thermo pine is comparable to hardwood classes I/II, and moreover has better shape retention and an appealing warm colour that weathers to a natural grey over time. HOTwood pine is also more durable and more resistant to moisture and wood rot.
Our HOTwood pine products are covered by a 15-year guarantee.
