The treatment process at PL Wood Factory
Acacia wood is a beautiful wood pattern and looks naturally beautiful. The wood has a moisture content is high. In our production line have to be heat treatment for all the wood to reduce the moisture. So after cutting the tree down, logs are cut and sawed into the shapes that are needed for the products. Then the wood is left to dry outside, under sunlight for 1-2 days, before being moved to the oven where it’s treated for termites. The temperature in the oven is about 60-70 degrees celsius, and the length of the treatment varies, depending on the thickness of the wood. We check the dried wood with a digital moisture meter to ensure the wood has reached our goal of a 12-15% moisture content. When this is achieved, we are ready for the next step in the process.
