Blackwood Tek is a technologically modified wood, which is obtained from New Zealand’s Pinus radiata. The manufacturing process of Blackwood Tek uses natural products, without plastics or other petroleum derivatives.
The result of uniting cutting edge technology and wood is a technological material with very different properties from the original Pinus radiata, while still maintaining its nature as wood, a natural product with its ideal appearance, quality and feel.
Its high density, hardness and stability, in addition to its colour (black or brown depending on the variety) make it perfect for fingerboards and other parts of musical instruments. Moreover, Blackwood Tek is suitable for immediate use, with a stable moisture content of 5%, and is resistant to changes in humidity and temperature with minimal fluctuation.
