Aspen timber is a lightweight hardwood with various uses. Due to its consistent homogeneous structure, bright colour and odourlessness, aspen is a highly sought after type of timber. It is also sought because of its optical qualities, stability and dimensionally stable. The mean bulk density based on a moisture content of 12 % is about 500 kg / m³. The high wear resistance in relation to its low bulk density is remarkable. Aspen is a preferred material in building saunas. It has a low thermal conductivity and its free from interfering resin. Excellent as slats for sauna benches.


Thermo aspen

Thermo aspen accrues as a result of a modification under the influence of water vapor and particularly high temperatures. This technology changes the characteristics and colour of aspen timber. Under the thermal treatment, resins and extracts evaporate, so it becomes permanently less water-absorbent and it is also particularly resistant to the influence of fungi and bacteria. Therefore, aspen can be used both inside and outdoors.
