What is Bendywood®?
It is a solid hardwood that can be worked like normal wood and then bent in a cold and dry state. This special wood is obtained from blanks of hardwood (beech, ash, oak and maple) treated according to a particular thermo-mechanical process. The timber (with a section of 100×120 mm) is first treated with steam and then, while still damp, it is compressed along its length of about 20% and it is then clamped into a mould to that length and dried.
The wood can then be easily worked with traditional methods and bent to a radius of ten times (1: 1 0) its thickness in a cold and dry state (i.e.: a 10 mm thick board can be bent to a radius of 100 mm) offering great time savings, cost savings and a better finished products compared to traditional wood bending or laminating techniques.
