Sustainability

Lignia is produced in the UK and is a softwood modified by firstly kilning and then treating with a formulated Phenol Urea Formaldehyde (PUF) resin. When is has cured the PUF resin condenses to produce a large chemically stable molecule locked into the wood. This process enhances the timber’s properties increasing durability (50 years out of ground contact), greater stability, density and hardness with a consistently built in golden brown colour. Lignia is a real wood suitable for use indoors and outdoors and is pH neutral making it less
likely to cause corrosion. Lignia has very low emissions of formaldehyde and meets European Emissions Standards E1. Lignia can be painted and performs well when coated.
