“the gist of it” – a summarization of the facts and benefits of pakari tmd • • • • • thermally modified wood was first commercialized throughout europe in the 1990’s and has quickly garnered mass appeal raw lumber is placed in specifically designed kilns and heated to almost 500°f over the course of 65 hours no chemicals are used throughout the process only heat and steam the products end moisture content is less than 7 and its stability has been improved the woods physical properties have been permanently modified most of the hemicelluloses are removed from the wood eliminating the necessary conditions to support fungal growth and insect infestation water absorption has been significantly reduced which means less shrinking and swelling a ⅛” nailing gap is recommended the woods ability to retain heat has been reduced meaning when left in the sun pakari is 2030 cooler to the touch than other decking products
