Frequently Asked Questions2019-07-07T13:30:55-05:00
What type of adhesive do you use?2019-06-22T17:05:10-05:00

We have two adhesives and two active studies in place with universities where we are innovating the
method that creates the best bond for flooring and structural uses.

  1. Phenyl Formaldehyde: plastic that creates A level bond for structural use and has proven results in commercial applications for over 80 years. CARB 2 compliant – passes the highest VOC emissions standards in the USA.

  2. Soy-Ad: Soy based adhesive with B level bond (same as wood glue) for visual grade applications (flooring/furniture). We are actively improving and testing other NAF adhesives.

Do you make exterior or structural products?2019-07-25T20:18:00-05:00

We do not currently make any exterior or structural products. Not because they don’t perform, but because we focus on interior face grade. If you buy some samples and make some samples, we would love to see how it works.

How price competitive will HempWood be compared to oak and pine?2019-07-23T17:01:13-05:00

We aim to be price competitive with US domestic oak by 2020, but softwoods like pine or poplar are out of reach. Automation in our factory and volume orders from customers will dictate costs and determine sales prices.

  • 1”x6”x48″ – 6 lbs (1 board for $40)

  • 1”x6”x72″ – 12 lbs (1 board for $60)

  • 1”x6”x12″ – 5 lbs (3 pieces for $50)

  • 6”x6”x72″ – 70 lbs (1 block for $200)

Can HempWood be cut into thin veneers?2019-06-22T17:12:55-05:00

Yes, we have tested 4mm veneers successfully but they need to be attached to a substrate such as plywood.

Does HempWood take a stain?2019-06-22T17:15:57-05:00

Yes, but it stains closer to a dense tropical hardwood with surface stain rather than penetration. Bona Products have worked well for us.
