Roasted Peat - Is a process that has been developed to enhance timber flooring properties. It uses ultrahigh temperature and humidity to change the molecular structure of the hardwood and creates an extremely stable, more durable, denser product while darkening the natural colour. Heating wood to extreme temperatures permanently changes several of its chemical and physical properties. The change in properties is mainly caused by thermic degrading of hemicelluloses. The Hurford Roasting process is carried out in a purpose built kiln in which the temperature is increased to 185-215 degrees Celsius, depending on the processing level. The colour of this timber is a rich dark coffee brown which eliminates the need to stain the flooring. This is the only species that uses this drying process.
