1 EcoVantage Thermally Modified Wood WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE? The History, Process and Applications of Thermally Modified Wood Products Presented By: Carlyle Holman

2 History of Thermally Modified Wood The Viking Museum-Oslo

3 The Process No Chemicals are Used! Wood Treated with Heat and Steam Most Pressured Treated Wood Dried at 140*F EcoPrem Processed over 400 * F Eliminates Sugars and Starches

4 The Process (continued) Process is similar for softwoods and hardwoods Softwood Used: Southern Yellow Pine Hardwoods: Hickory, Oak and many more! Patent protected proprietary process: consistent results

5 Environmental Facts Natural Wood Product Free of toxins and chemicals Fully recyclable Bio-degradable material Comparable energy consumption to pressure treated wood

6 Key Properties Permeability (water absorption) reduced Warp, twist, expansion, contractions substantially reduced Hardness improved (Brinell Scale) Strength reduced (8%-9%) Density increased (5%-10%) Biological durability improved

7 Advantages of Thermally Modified Wood 100% Environmentally Friendly Zero Toxicity Dimensionally Stable Beauty of Real Wood Remarkably Durable No Resin, sugars, low moisture (resists rot.) 30 Year Warranty

8 Working With EcoPrem Safe:No Chemicals to harm workers Sawing:No difference from untreated wood Planing:Use ordinary planing equipment Milling:Requires sharp blades Sanding:Sandpaper does not gum up...less sap Gluing:Glues with water base of 10%-12% best Drilling:Pre-drilling not required if using self drilling deck screws

9 Deck & Railing Systems EcoDeck - A UV coating* is recommended to maintain color and warmth of the wood Resists - rot and decay Beauty - of real wood Sustainable * Wood Defender coating recommended, GreenSpec approved

10 Premium Structural Wood High Strength: Light Weight: Indoor & Outdoor Durability: Dimensionally Stable:

11 Wood Landscape Products Docks Piers Fences Arbors Pergolas

12 Premium Wood Siding & Flooring Products Lightweight Durable Resists Rot and Water Damage Beautiful in Interiors with Hardwoods
