The manufacturer of Accoya wood will introduce Tricoya, a MDF product backed by a 50-year warranty, at AWFS.
Tricoya is made from wood fibers that have gone through a modification process called acetylation, similar to Accoya wood, that alters the cell structure of the wood rendering wood more dimensionally stable, according to the company.
Tricoya can be used on a variety of exterior applications that would not normally be considered ideal for any MDF products including façade cladding, fascia and soffit panels, window components, outdoor furniture, and play frames/tree houses. It can also be used in wet interior applications such as wall linings in swimming pools, bathrooms, wet rooms, and changing rooms.
“Tricoya is truly a major innovation in the wood panel industry and we are excited to bring it the North American market,” Accsys Group head of marketing Laura Keily said in a statement. “Tricoya opens up new market opportunities for woodworking professionals to use a wood panel that will stand the test of time and climate.”
