New sustainable hardwoods technology

An innovative line of sustainable and environmentally-friendly wood products is the basis of EverTech. EverTech will manufacture and market Alowood, a new line of wood products based on the company's proprietary process for wood hardening.

The new products will offer a consistent appearance, milling performance and hardness competitive with rain forest hardwoods, without the associated environmental impact.

EverTech offers customers an attractive, cost-effective, environmentally-sound alternative to domestic and exotic hardwoods like walnut, rosewood and ebony. The Alowood product line, featuring EverTech's Everdex technology, is made from plantation-grown sustainable softwoods, which are hardened to achieve the physical and aesthetic characteristics of traditional and tropical hardwoods. This combination of attributes provides a naturally-enhanced wood option for consumers, building contractors and architectural designers.

Initial markets include wood flooring and other interior applications, such as furniture, cabinetry, molding and doors. Exterior applications, including decking, are under development.
