Canjaere Classic is a pre - finished, high - performance, timber cladding. The Koppers Process was originally developed as a drying medium for timber.
A blend of mineral and vegetable oils are used under heat and vacuum to remove moisture from wet timber. It was discovered that timber, dried by this process benefited from some new, unique properties which enhanced its performance.
The timber product, which is created by the Canjaere Classic process, is a new, stabilised building material with many added - value opportunities for the timber cladding and pre-stained, decorative, timber market sectors. The Koppers timber treatment gives softwoods the typical properties of hardwood enabling them to be used in typical hardwood applications by increasing water resistance and stability.
