Cambia Ash

Franxinus Americana

The Cambia thermal modification process uses high heat to improve its dimensional stability and decay resistance. Cambia products are more dimensionally stable and less prone to cup, warp and twist. Service life of applied finishes is extended which reduces maintenance costs. Cambia does not contain any toxic chemicals. The carbon sequestered within Cambia gives it a rich brown colour. Also known as Thermally Modified Ash, Torrified Ash.
