Cambia by NFP
Cambia by NFP® is a venture formed by Northland Forest Products to manufacture and market thermally modified (TM) lumber as an environmentally responsible choice to tropical hardwoods or petrochemical-based wood alternatives. Thermal modification is a clean and efficient technology that uses high heat in a controlled atmosphere to remove naturally occurring organic compounds in wood that provide a food source for insects or fungi. The thermal modification process also modifies the cellular structure of the wood, limiting the amount of water that can be absorbed by the wood cells, which significantly increases the dimensional stability of wood. Testing by an independent testing lab placed Cambia TM Yellow Poplar in the highest durability rating class achievable for rot and decay resistance. The wood that Cambia thermally modifies is manufactured in the United States by local sawmills with logs harvested from sustainably-managed forests and is available with FSC certification.
