Cambia. Wood. Made Better.

The Cambia thermal modification process - a clean and energy efficient technology - uses high heat in a controlled atmosphere to improve both the dimensional stability and the decay resistance of wood by permanently altering its chemical and physical properties.

Forest Stewardship Counci100% FSC ® (FSC-C113479) certified, this non-toxic product provides a uniform coloration and could well be the first truly green lumber resource that performs better and costs less than alternative products developed to replace wood.

The modern, versatile alternative, Cambia is a great looking product that is changing the way we think about where and how to how to use wood; Cambia has applied its ground-breaking thermal modification process to popular American Ash, Oak, Maple and Poplar, creating an all-purpose, all weather product without peer. By reducing the ability of wood to absorb moisture, Cambia has produced a dimensionally stable, decay resistant timber.

It is particularly suited to humid conditions where it is less prone to movement than traditional timbers. Applied finishes last longer on Cambia and maintenance is also reduced. Because it sequesters the carbon in wood, Cambia products have a rich, brown colour perfectly suited to modern domestic and commercial applications.

Cambia’s thermal modification process also removes the nutrients in wood that can provide a food source for insects and wood-destroying fungi. As a result, Cambia products do not contain any toxic chemicals.

Where to Use Cambia

Cambia is by its very nature, an extremely versatile product. It is used for decking, cladding, flooring and general joinery, including doors and windows and is increasingly being used for outdoor furniture and spa/pool areas. Cambia’s special qualities can be used almost anywhere your imagination leads you.
