Since 2022, Hout – Bois van Steenberge has been the exclusive distributor of Kebony® in Belgium and Luxembourg.
The Norwegian company Kebony® is a manufacturer of bio-based modified wood, a sustainable building material with a significantly lower environmental impact than concrete or steel. Kebony developed its own Kebony® technology, a patented, environmentally friendly process that strengthens the properties of sustainable softwood using an organic liquid.
Specifically, the softwood is modified in a reactor with an organic liquid (furfuryl alcohol). After impregnation, the wood is moderately heated (<120°C) in an oxygen-deficient environment, causing polymerisation of the furfuryl alcohol to take place, and any excess effluent is collected.
The resulting polymer, which is now permanently enclosed in the wood cells, is stable and will not disintegrate or leak from the wood. After this treatment, the softwood obtains the appearance and properties of tropical hardwood.
