Fuming is the process of darkening wood and emphasizing grain patterns by exposing it to ammonia vapors. The process is in very high-demand, and Plywood Express delivers!
Manufactured in a multi-chamber machine, this process utilizes environmentally-friendly vacuum technology where the wood is placed into a chamber and exposed to ammonia gas.
The entire process takes about 3-4 weeks to complete. The result is a darker color. We use a closed system that is controlled, from start to finish.
Wood must contain tannin for this process to be preformed. The concentration of color is dependent upon the amount of tannin in the specie. Color varies depending on level of tannin: from honey-brown to rich chocolate to deep black. You can also expect more smoothness and flexibility.
