Accoya is the world's leading high technology wood. It utilises sustainably grown timber that has been modified at the molecular level by a process called acetylation. Nothing is added to the wood that is not already naturally present. The process prevents wood from bonding with water, and has many resultant durability,stability and other benefits. As a result, Accoya is perfect for windows and doors and a whole variety of joinery products, as the swelling and shrinking of acetylated wood is very minimal.
