Nakatado is burned by our firemen and then brushed and treated with Bito Black. The lively grain structure becomes visible and has a height difference of about 1-2mm between the high and low parts. Nakatado is well resistant to all weather influences and does not give off. The flat flame pattern gives a calm and contemporary image in the room. Thanks to its thermally modified wood, Nakatado is a versatile alternative for applications that require a very durable wood species.
Nakatado is treated with our Bito Black after burning and brushing. Bito Black gives good protection against water, dirt, mould and other deposits. We recommend re-applying this treatment every 3 to 5 years. In addition, we also offer possibilities for a silk gloss and/or scratch-resistant coating for interior applications. Feel free to ask us about the possibilities.
