Thermally modified wood, is wood that has been modified by a controlled pyrolysis process of wood being heated (> 180 °C) in absence of oxygen inducing some chemical changes to the chemical structures of cell wall components (lignin, cellulose and hemicellulose) in the wood in order to increase its durability. Low oxygen content prevents the wood from burning at these high temperatures.
Any wood species can be thermally modified. The process turns the wood brown, which can make some otherwise non-descript woods quite attractive. On the downside, the treated wood can have a lingering “burnt wood” odor.
