"Mimosa" – A mixing of orange juice and champagne which greatly improves the orange.
Ever had one? Anyone can enjoy fresh-squeezed orange juice, but only a few dare to add a tinge of champagne. Treat your project like the gem you know it is. Exotic wood floors, beautiful countertop options, and decking choices are just the beginning of what will make your orange go zoom... and they are available at Pacific American Lumber.
If you were day-dreaming in Chemistry 101, the diagram above may mean nothing to you. Truth be told, this simple illustration represents a ground breaking manufacturing process from which the result is the hottest wood product to hit Hawaii in a long time. Simply put, wood rot stops here.
Accoya®, manufactured by Accsys Technologies, is a Radiata pine that has gone through acetylation. Acetylation destroys the ability of the wood to retain moisture, which means bacteria can’t grow on it and termites can’t digest it. The end result is a wood product that is harder than oak, as stable as teak, and comes with a 50-year warranty against rot and pest invasion.
Some other cool facts:
• It can be used for anything from structural timbers to decking, hardwood flooring, and all types of interior and exterior finish work- including doors and windows.
• Because Accoya® doesn’t expand and contract, the life expectancy of paints and finishes is significantly extended.
• Accoya® is made from plantation-grown Radiata pine which makes it a leader of forest friendly wood products.
• The only by-product of this process is acetic acid, better known as vinegar. No harmful chemicals into local watersheds or landfills.
