STABILIZED PLATAN

High grade stabilized wood

Raffir Wood is our quality brand of stabilized wood, and it is the core product of our company. We have more than 15 years of experience developing, producing and improving stabilized wood. It is a continuous cycle, and every year we strive to make it better, stronger and more beautiful. It is made from beautifully figured natural wood that is filled to the core with a specially developed thermoset resin. The finished material maintains the unique grain patterns of the untreated wood while obtaining mechanical advantages from the homogeneous resin compound. Raffir Wood can be stabilized in various colors such as: black, brown, red, yellow, purple, lime, green, orange and natural. Raffir stabilized wood has high durability and can obtain a high gloss finish after polishing. It absorbs very little water after the treatment, and will have very low swelling and shrinkage at different humidity. Therefore it will not warp and crack as easily as untreated wood. The material has a smooth surface without porosities and needs no other finishing than fine sanding and polishing.
