Developed in Norway, Kebony® technology is an environmentally friendly, patented process that improves the natural properties of sustainable softwood with a bio-based liquid. The process permanently modifies the wood cell walls, giving Kebony premium hardwood-like characteristics and performance and a rich brown color. After exposure to sun and rain, the wood develops a natural silver-gray patina. Performance is maintained, while beauty is enhanced.
Kebony is real wood - the remarkable impregnation and drying process adds 50% to the cell walls of the wood which strengthens and stabilizes it for exterior use. Kebony is a sustainable natural wood cladding solution for rain screen projects.
