BECKER belmadur® / Weatherproof plywood

BECKER belmadur®

Discipline: Material

Discipline: Material

Weatherproof shaped beech wood.
A newly patented process called Belmadur® appears to be turning fixed rules of shaped wood applications upside down.

More durable: BECKER belmadur® shaped beech wood is as long-living as teak. The food basis is extracted from the wood-destructive fungus.
Harder: BECKER belmadur® shaped beech wood is twice as hard as oak.
Dimension stable: BECKER belmadur® shaped beech wood is as dimension stable as teak. It hardly shrinks and swells at all.
Sustainable: The higher durability opens up a greater chance of intensified use for local beech wood from PEFC or FSC certified stocks.

Appearance: BECKER belmadur® shaped beech wood looks exactly like “normal” wood. The strength properties are nearly the same.

Design: Now ideas are in demand. Belmadur® shaped beech wood opens up many new application varieties for designers and manufacturers.
