Exotic wood handles and wood stabilization
What is tree stabilization?
Exotic wood handles are based on the process of wood stabilization. Wood stabilization is a process that is done in vacuum chambers that enable the creation of unique materials with high technical and aesthetic characteristics.
Oxygen is extracted from the wood and a liquid based on epoxy resin is inserted, which enters deep into the pores of the wood, which after a specific time is baked in an oven at a certain temperature.
After that, the wood becomes stronger, does not absorb odors and is subject to the hasap standard. By adding paint to the stabilizing liquid, the color of the wood can be changed. Each tree reacts differently to the color and different colored surfaces are obtained.
The process of wood stabilization ensures its preservation. This process aims to preserve the decorative and ester properties of wood, giving it strength and hardness.
Wood stabilization is the filling of wood cavities with materials that can harden or polymerize. If the process is approached with full responsibility, incredibly hard wood can be obtained.
