Working wonders with wood.

Wood firms join forces to create non-toxic MDF

Published:  10 June, 2009

LONDON: Titan Wood and MDF manufacturer Medite Europe signed a joint development agreement … 

to create an economically viable, non-toxic, and stable medium density fibreboard panel made from Titan Wood's Tricoya wood elements.

Titan’s technology, based on wood acetylation, increases the amount of 'acetyl' molecules in wood, changing its physical properties.

The environmentally responsible process protects wood from rot and improves stability and durability without making it toxic.

This will enable new products to be used in new applications, including those that are in high moisture areas, especially outdoors.
