LUNAWOOD Thermowood® is a beautiful, sustainable wood material produced by using natural methods, heat and steam. Thermal modification improves the wood’s properties, thereby expanding the range of applications in which the wood can be used. Thermally modified timber is dimensionally stable, resistant to decay and resin-free. It can be used inside or outdoors, in any climate. Lunawood is a non-toxic natural product which is easy to machine and install.   

JSC Timber is a proud partner of Lunawood in New Zealand. LUNAWOOD is imported to New Zealand and profiled locally by JSC Timber. It originates in the forests of Finland, offering both distinctive aesthetic and performance characteristics unlike any other timber cladding. 

The patented production process is based on the gradual thermal modification of the wood, wherein the chemical and physical properties undergo a permanent change. Thermal treatment means that the process itself uses only water vapour and heat; no chemicals are being used. The heat inside the thermal modification chamber is slowly raised to 212°C and the whole process can last up to 110 hours. When the process is complete, the moisture percentage of the raw material is around 4 – 7 %. 

The thermal modification significantly improves the wood’s properties throughout the wood, thereby expanding the range of applications in which the wood can be used. Lunawood is most known for its dimensional stability, durability and sustainable nature.

Lunawood is a reliable choice for exterior cladding due to it's improved dimensional stability, durability and aesthetics. It provides a modern finish for a variety of applications. 

Lunawood is highly suitable for interior wall linings and battens.  In addition to Lunawood attractive appearance, the thermal modification of wood eliminates the risk of harmful emissions. This makes Lunawood an ideal material for interiors.
