Humidification for the wood industry
and furniture manufacture

Wood is a natural material that “lives” long after the tree has been felled. If the air is too dry during storage and processing, moisture is removed from the wood. Unless additional air humidification is provided, deformation, distortion, unevenness and surface cracks occur. Frame corners and veneer joints can crack.

Wood is hygroscopic

Hygroscopic materials are substances that can trap moisture in their cell structure. At low humidity, the air extracts moisture from the materials, often damaging the cell structure and causing cracks to form.
