The manufacturer of high-performance Accoya wood will introduce Tricoya, the greatest evolution in MDF in 50 years, at AWFS this week, going to be held from July 19 to 22, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Backed by a 50-year warranty, 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. Like Accoya wood, Tricoya panels are an unrecognizable food source for insects and prevents fungal decay.
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.
Laura Keily, head of marketing at Accsys Group, said, “Tricoya is truly a major innovation in the wood panel industry and we are excited to bring it the North American market. Tricoya opens up new market opportunities for woodworking professionals to use a wood panel that will stand the test of time and climate.”
Tricoya MDF panels, made using Tricoya wood chips, are extremely durable and stable, making them perfect for exterior and wet area applications. They are light-weight, sustainable and offer a 50 year above ground and 25 year in ground guarantee, revolutionizing the opportunities presented to architects, specifiers, designers and home owners.
