What is pakka wood?
Pakkawood is an outstanding material of exceptional quality and long-lasting beauty. Utilizing advanced processes, carefully selected foreign and domestic hardwood veneers are impregnated with phenolic thermosetting resins. Under intense heat and pressure, multiple layers of these treated hardwoods are fused into a solid, homogeneous block of material that is:
- Strong and durable
- Dimensionally stable
- Weather and moisture resistant
The impregnated color in Pakkawood carries through the entire thickness of the material, while the resin provides a built in finish. Sanding and buffing the completed part will yield a gloss finish without any spraying.
PakkaWood components can be produced in an incredible variety of shapes, sizes, colors and finishes. As in nature - where no two pieces of wood are exactly alike, even from the same tree - the beauty of our wood products is that no two pieces are the same. Differences in color and grain structure produce individual characteristics and each component will react differently to the shaping and finishing process.
