A PASSION FOR WOOD

How to choose the right protective treatment

Wood is one of the oldest and most distinctive natural raw materials. At Amonn we have a passionate commitment to developing products capable of protecting all items made of this material, preserving all its tangible and intangible values, enabling it to be handed on to future generations. 
When we develop Amonn systems we start off with in-depth knowledge of how wood behaves in contact with its three main enemies – fire, atmospheric and biological agents. Amonn develops effective, reliable protective systems for each of these. 
The Amonn team will use all their experience to guide you in your choice of the ideal treatment
