The benefits of Ayous
- Even texture
- Light Weight
Stable wood type for skeletons
Ayous is tropical softwood that, without any treatment, is a type of wood with a very low durability.
Nowadays it is 'thermally preserved'.
Here the wood is steamed, which gives it a higher natural durability.
Note: the wood will damage as quickly, suffer from damp spots, little fireproof, etc.
Thanks to the uniform texture with a cross-wire, but straight grain, the wood is ideal for thin objects such as moldings that do not have to be finished with a high gloss. The grain looks straight, with streaks when it is sawed for quarter of an hour, but usually it is cross-linked.
Fast drying, stable wood type
Ayous is surprisingly easy to edit. It is stable, fast-drying and easy. In addition, the wood variety Ayous is especially appreciated for its appearance when it is pickled.
