Functional Wood

Functional Wood

OrganoClick has developed a series of products used to enhance the use of wood as a sustainable and functional construction material. Being a “living” and organic material wood is often seen as a difficult material to work with. Through OrganoClick's joint-venture OrganoWood AB, a number of innovative wood treatment technologies and wooden products has been developed and are supplied to both professionals users and consumers.

Problems with rot, fire and dimensional stability is often encountered. Traditionally these problems have been solved by using heavy chemical treatment which has a negative impact on the environment. Biocides and heavy metals are common in the wooden industry. 

OrganoClick has with inspiration from nature and by using its technology for modification of biofibers developed a range of products that solve these problems. By mimicking the natural fossilization process, the new wooden material OrganoWood® has been developed which both has an improved resistance to fungal decay and fire without use of heavy metals and biocides. 

OrganoWood has products both for professional users and consumers. The industrially treated wood are sold as decking timber, construction timber and as cladding in most commonly used dimensions. In addition to modified wood OrganoWood® is also available as a do-it-yourself surface treatment product. OrganoWood are currently selling our products both to construction companies and consumers through a large network of resellers, building suppliers, paint dealers and distributors in Sweden, Finland, Norway, Denmark, the Baltics, Germany, the UK and Ireland.

Technology

Through the use of the OrganoClick®-technology for modification of biofibers, naturally occuring silicon minerals are attached to the wood fibers, creating an improved resistance to fungal decay and also rendering improved resistance to fire. By mimicking the Lotus-flowers water repellent features, a technology has also been developed rendering wood with highly water repellent properties and dimensional stability.
