LOS ANGELES , April 23, 2012 () – Lignia wood, a densified and chemically modified wood product manufactured by Fortified Timber Systems in New Zealand, is undergoing testing for a number of applications, according to a report by German industry news service Euwid.

Fortified Timber Systems concluded tests for the use of Lignia in exterior applications in the autumn of 2011, and the product is now undergoing tests for applications including worktop and furniture production, flooring, window components and decking.

Lignia is also being used to produce sliced veneer after Fibre 7, Fortified Timber Systems' parent company, concluded an agreement in February with Bad Bentheim, Germany-based veneer processor Hobb.

According to its website, Lignia is produced by impregnating plantation-grown knot-free softwood with a simple compound, which can also be used to add color to the wood. The compound imparts the strength, density and color of traditional hardwood to the cells, the company says.
