What is Kebony?

Simply put, Kebony is the sustainable alternative to Ipe and other tropical hardwoods. With a revolutionary organic modification of wood, Kebony has created an aesthetic, strong, and durable solution with performance comparable to tropical hardwood species. Unlike tropical hardwood decking and cladding, Kebony is 100% environmentally friendly and from sustainably managed forests.

Kebony starts with the selection of the highest grade of sustainably harvested wood species. Then, through a process named Kebonization, the wood is impregnated with a biobased fluid changing the woods cell walls resulting in greatly improved durability and dimensional stability. Containing no harmful compounds so you don't need to worry about it leeching into the surrounding soil or water.

The final step is heating the material to cure the fluid and wood together at the molecular level completing the process which reduces shrinking and swelling by nearly 50% while increasing the density making it harder than untreated wood. The end product is a beautiful alternative to the traditional tropical hardwood decking you often see around pools, docks, and other landscaping features. Kebony, left untreated, will age into a beautiful silver patina, shown below.
