What are the principles behind the technology?

Thermal Fused Technology Classic Series

Extracted & fused to last

We extract all the nutrients (which include sugar and starch) from the bamboo, impregnate it with phenolic resin (the same resin found in bowling balls), then compress it 2:1 to form Fused Bamboo. Because Fused Bamboo does not contain any more nutrients, it will not attract bacteria, fungus, molds or insects; the fiber does not rot under exposed environments.

CeramiX® Fused Technology Epic Series

Crystalized & fused to last

We crystalize the fibers with CeramiX® nano particle, impregnate it with phenolic resin (the same resin found in bowling balls), then compress it 2:1 to form Fused Bamboo. Because Fused Bamboo is now fully impregnated with CeramiX® nano particle that crystalizes the nutrients from attracting bacteria, fungus, molds or insects, the fiber does not rot under exposed environments.
