Why Accoya?

Why use Accoya?  Accoya® wood represents a major development in wood technology. It enables the consistent supply of durable, non-toxic, dimensionally stable wood. This makes it an ideal material for manufacturing high performance, exterior timber products like wood siding and outside decking. Accoya is manufactured through the acetylation of plantation grown softwood. For over 80 years this has been the gold standard in the academic field of wood science. A breakthrough in closed-loop engineering, culminating in 2007, led to the first commercial scale production of the product in the world.

Accoya should be specified in conjunction with the large number of companies manufacturing cladding, decking, landscape timbers and joinery using Accoya wood.

Looking to the future, we will strive to retain our strong sustainability position and further improve Accoya wood’s outstanding environmental performance. With our environmentally sound production process in place and the continuous improvements we make, we are confident that Accoya will remain a world leader in sustainable wood technology.
