what is woodn
WOODN is a technical wood.
The first of its kind in the world, it succeeds in combining two incompatible components like PVC and wood fibre to create a material with an intrinsically high aesthetic appeal in the material itself, rather than being the result of surface treatments typical of traditional WPC, with a dimensional stability that is much greater than both traditional WPC and wood itself. .

Woodn is the only technical wood today that can be used for applications that until recently were relegated exclusively to ceramic and glass.

Woodn has revolutionized the evolution of the classification of materials: for this reason we can proudly say that Woodn is species unica !

Woodn has full-body grain patterns, thanks to an exclusive production process that restores the natural feel and look of wood, making it possible to carry out surface treatments without modifying the grain or colour. Furthermore, the grain pattern is random and not repeatable, so each Woodn profile is visibly unique: like natural materials, it gives no impression of being produced in series.

Its main characteristics:

WOODN is a Class 1 material in conformity with UNI 8457/87, UNI 8457/A1/96, EN13501_1 Class Bfl -S1 standards.
WOODN has no problem resisting water, making it particularly suitable for outdoor applications and very humid environments, because 80% of the wood fibres are coated by the polymeric component (PVC and other elements in the formula).
WOODN is subject to limited and regular dilation and compression (max. 3mm/ linear m) due to temperature changes, even if abrupt.

WOODN contains no toxic materials and is 100% recyclable.
WOODN is a material that requires very limited energy consumption and uses wood residues from other production processes. WOODN is a member of the GBC (Green Building Council). An international organisation founded in America during the 1990s, the GBC deals in the certification of buildings according to LEED standards. LEED certification refers to the eco-sustainability of the entire building and not of an individual product. Woodn therefore contributes to obtaining the final score.

WOODN, thanks to the exclusive use of expanding materials, is lighter than other similar products, making it easier to apply and transport. This results in significant cuts in logistics costs.
WOODN is not subject to the destructive actions of woodworm, fungi, and parasites in general.
WOODN bends but does not break: in fact, it can be thermoformed to adapt to curves and more complex surfaces.
WOODN is sound-absorbent and, thanks to its wood-like characteristics, feels warm and pleasant to touch.
WOODN does not emit formaldehyde or other toxic substances and contains no heavy metals.

WOODN, when tested according to the English B.C.R.A. method in its unbrushed and dry version, has a friction coefficient greater than 0.40, as indicated in the following table:

< 0,19 dangerous slipperiness
from 0,20 to 0,39 excessive slipperiness
from 0,40 to 0,74 satisfactory friction
> 0,75 excellent friction

According to the German DIN 51130 test, the friction coefficient of Woodn is comparable to R10.
Woodn also increases its anti-slip characteristics when the surface is wet.
