The PrimWood Method is a new production concept for manufacturing of high quality boards, components and panels from softwoods and hardwoods. The method generates knot-free boards, components and panels with vertical annual rings. The PrimWood Method increases the quality of the wood, compared to wood processed with traditional methods (harder surface, increased shape stability, freedom from cracks, easier and faster processing, less waste and a more even finishing). The wood is also given new aesthetical characteristics (e. g. even texture, knot-free surfaces and decorative finger-joints). The PrimWood Method also improves the raw material utilization, with resulting positive environmental effects, since a renewable resource is utilized more efficiently.
