As wood is a hygroscopic material, the right level of humidity is essential for preventing variations in the moisture content of the wood that would cause deformations, cracks and breakage of the fibres.
When drying, wood absorbs the solvent of the finishes, taking on a granulose and matt appearance. Similarly, the glued joints are unstable, as the wood absorbs the solvent of the glue before the glue has the chance to polymerise. In this case too, the stabilisation of the environmental conditions allows the wood to maintain the same dimensions throughout the entire process, ensuring better results.
Furthermore, humidification minimises the dispersion of dust in the air.
Humidity levels of 45-50%rh with a temperature range from 20-22°C should ideally be maintained all the times.
Steam products such as humiSteam are ideal for smaller areas whilst humiFog and MCmultizone are the ideal choice for large production and storage facilities.
