The material

High quality and carefully selected!


Hardwood with thin yellow brown sapwood and dark golden brown heartwood that darkens in the air.


Teak wood is naturally decorative striped, extremely hard, durable and water-repellent.


Sun, wet, rain - no wind and no weather can teak wood wear something!


CARE: Only if you do not appreciate the silver gray teak patina, you have to regularly rub your teak with teak oil - otherwise no care is needed.


The oak has a very distinctive texture and warm tawny tones.


The porosity and the large rays of wood, the wood is clearly structured.


As the oak wood can usually be stained, matted, glazed or painted by any means, the treatment of white oak with ammonia ("smoking") is no problem and leads to a continuous brown to black-brown color.


The sapwood of this mallow plant can hardly be distinguished from the creamy-yellow to straw-colored heartwood. The fiber is rotating, which leads to a stripe drawing on radially cut surfaces. The texture is medium coarse but even. The wood has a natural shine.


The pores are scattered, large and have a very fine transverse change through storied memory cell arrangement. This type of wood is characterized by an irregular alternating rotation.


One of the valuable hardwoods, the wood is yellowish-white to white in color. In spite of the identical color of the sapwood and the core, which therefore do not differ from each other, the annual rings are clearly recognizable. The only slightly shrinking wood has a medium density, is elastic, tough and hard.


The wood has good flexural strength. It is not very weather-resistant, but the surface can be processed well. Polishing, staining, coloring and treatment with lacquers is therefore problem-free.


The walnut is one of the noble hardwoods and provides a particularly beautiful wood. For centuries it has been one of the preferred luxury woods. Often it is also classified as the most valuable wood ever among our native timber species.


The very decorative wood has a particularly beautiful, brown-gray basic color and is often striped or grained. The tree ring boundaries are clearly visible. The very decorative wood has a particularly beautiful, brown-gray basic color and is often striped or grained. The annual ring boundaries are clearly visible. The coarse, arranged in the half ring and porous vessels are also among the typical characteristics of the walnut.


The wood has a moderate density and a very decorative, shiny gold brown to red color.


The sapwood is light to yellowish gray. The heartwood settles clearly by its light to dark reddish brown coloring and darkens strongly at the light. The pores are medium sized, the rays are very fine and often storied.


The growth zones are brightly contrasted and the fiber course usually has an alternating rotation.


When selecting the suitable material for the production of a technical component, the following material properties are of particular importance:


  • the strength, this means the ability of a given material cross-section to withstand external forces without breaking
  • the rigidity, this means the ability of a given component to deform as little as possible (for example, bending, twisting ...) under the influence of external forces
  • the specific weight, this means the weight of a certain material volume.
  • the manufacturability, this means the suitability of the material, with not too expensive tools to enable the production of complex, difficult-shaped components.


Relating the material strength or stiffness to the specific weight, one speaks of "specific strength" or "specific rigidity". Especially in the case of very weight critical components - such as aerospace - you will choose materials that have good values in this regard.
