What is stabilized wood?
Raffir Wood is naturally beautiful wood that is filled to the core with a plastic resin. We call this process “stabilization”. The final material has the unique grain patterns of the untreated wood. Meanwhile, it obtains the mechanical advantages from the strong resin. In other words, it unites the best parts from both worlds. Good quality stabilized wood absorbs very little water. Therefore, it is less prone to warping and cracking. It is also heavier, harder and more durable than normal wood. Finally, it polishes well and has a deeper grain structure.
Normally, wood is stabilized with a vacuum process. We use a combination of vacuum and very high pressure to achieve the best result. Furthermore, we have developed our own acrylic resin formula. Because of this, Raffir Wood has high durability and can obtain a high gloss finish after polishing. It absorbs very little water, 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.
