WTT is not only a technology provider. We also develop new wood products, protection systems, and service offerings.

The projects are run as internal projects or in cooperation with customers and manufacturers of wood preservatives and oils.

At the moment we are heavily involved in:

  • Post treatment of thermally modified timber with new oil types for UV stability
  • Further NWPC certification of two hardwood species
  • Development of safe and cost effective substitutes for creosote
  • Basic research studies on the mode of action in modified wood

In order to document whether development candidates are efficient, we assign testing with leading independent institutes on a regular basis.

We also test products at our own outdoor exposure site as well as in tropical climate on Borneo.

Besides the on-going projects we have and continue to develop a strong network with leading universities and test institutes, globally.
