Using the latest structurally superior laminated veneer lumber (LVL) engineering and proprietary wood impregnation technology, Heveatech is an eco-friendly outdoor decking timber developed for the wood lover minus the shortcomings of traditional solid wood, so you may enjoy the beauty of your outdoor timber decking without worries of durability or termites attack.
Made with 100% real wood harvested from sustainable resources, Heveatech is advanced engineered to be extremely durable and dimensionally stable to resist warping, twisting, cracking, cupping and rotting due to fluctuating temperature under outdoor weather conditions, is termites-resistant, versatile and resource-effective.
Benefits to the Home Owner & Contractor
♥ 100% REAL WOOD, NATURALLY BEAUTIFUL
Unlike synthetically produced materials that mimic wood, Heveatech features the wood’s natural wood grain, colour variations & warmth.
♥ TERMITES RESISTANT
Heveatech naturally repels termites and insects, and comes with a 10 years warranty against termites attack.
♥ EXTREMELY DURABLE
Engineered for high durability, Heveatech offers 15 years structural warranty against delamination + 10 years warranty against decay.
♥ SUPERIOR DIMENSIONAL STABILITY
Warping, cupping, cracking and twisting of wood typically occur as a result of the expansion and contraction of wood over time. Heveatech features up to 50% less expansion and contraction compared to solid Chengal.
Heveatech is 80% harder than solid teak, another feature that makes it highly durable and stable.
Different from trees specially planted and felled for commercial purposes, Heveatech is made from reclaimed plantation-grown timber, namely 25 to 30-year-old Hevea (rubber) trees that have reached the end of its latex-producing lifespan.
♥ READY TO INSTALL
Unlike traditional hardwood, Heveatech has uniform moisture content and does not require seasoning prior to and after installation. It is ready to be installed and finished on site, saving time and labour resources.
♥ CONSISTENT LONG LENGTHS
Heveatech decking timber comes in long lengths of 2.5 metres, which further speeds up installation and reduces wastage and cost.
Why Heveatech is Superior
Unlike common commercially treated wood where treatment and protection against water, termites infestation and other rot-causing elements is limited to the outer layer of the wood, Heveatech decking timber is fully protected against these concerns. Hence, it can be cut and drilled anywhere without worry of exposing any ‘vulnerable’ parts to unfavourable weather conditions or termites infestations. This saves time and cost as there is no need for Heveatech decking timber to be cut to size and then sent for treatment prior to installation.
Heveatech is ready to be cut, drilled AND installed on-site without compromising on its resistance against termites, water and other rot-causing elements. This is made possible by the layer-by-layer treatment of Heveatech through an advanced vacuum impregnation process before they are bonded together with marine-grade adhesive under heat and pressure to form a highly durable and stable solid structure.
Another feature that contributes favourably to Heveatech’s high durability and dimensional stability is its uniform moisture content, achieved through the press-drying of each thinly peeled layer of the reclaimed logs prior to the treatment and binding of the layers.
Truly Eco-friendly Wood from Sustainable Resources
Heveatech is made from rubber trees that are felled from legal sites at the end of its 20 to 30-year latex production life span, with no intended felling of trees. Verified by: Rainforest Alliance US
Traditionally, these logs from felled rubber trees are burned by farmers to make way for a new crop. The purchase of these felled rubber trees for the manufacturing of Heveatech creates a win-win situation, whereby the farmers gain additional income to finance the plantation of their next crop without the need for burning and polluting the environment or the need to clear the debri from the burning, which in turn reduces the lag time required for the planting of their next crop.
In addition, the chemicals used for the bonding and treatment of Heveatech has the lowest chemical emission of 0.26 mg/l. Test Reports: SGS Test Report & Green Label Test Report

Wood is universally admired for the beauty of its natural wood grain as well as the comfort, tranquillity and warmth it brings to its environment. Heveatech is made without compromising on the natural, unparalleled beauty of the wood grain, preserving its natural beauty in order to bring you closer to nature in an environmentally responsible manner.
