Latin name: Juglans regia.
Other name: French walnut
Comment : This lobed-leaved tree is mostly present in Europe, in Asia Minor and in South-Western Asia. Its grain goes from straight to waved, its texture is rough. It is a brownie grey wood. This specie is relatively long lasting and hard. In spite of its hardness, it is easy to work and to stick. This wood offers a nice glossy. Walnut is used for making inside woodworks, pieces of furniture, rifle butts, for woodcarving but also for turning, veneering and steam bending.
Stabilizing a material literally consists in making it more stable, one could say in most cases that this operation consists in densifying it, using a resin. By a process that we keep secret, we penetrate a resin and/or color pigments to the heart.
We thus obtain a more homogeneous and often more aesthetic material because the resin (and/or the pigments) highlights the designs of the stabilized part.
In addition to the aesthetic aspects, this process makes it possible to make usable materials that had only low mechanical qualities. Thus a "heated" or heavily damaged wood regains nobility.
Stabilization 2.0 odorless : It has been over 10 years since we stabilized our first poplar fork block. As of the start of the 2020 school year, we are offering you a new, more efficient stabilization. This new epoxy-based "recipe" is odorless, has a better impregnation rate and still the same quality in the wood / resin homogeneity.
Latin name: Piratinera guianensis .
