Blue Stain Pine from Torzo

Check out this beautiful new material from Torzo – salvaged timber made incredibly durable with the company’s acrylic infusion process. Behind the material is a good story of environmental stewardship – trees from forests that have been devastated by pine beetles across the US and Canada, previously left for waste, are being repurposed by Torzo, who takes the seemingly unusable blue-stained timber and highlights this unique characteristic, creating stunning new products in sheet, panel and flooring options. Find out more about Torzo’s efforts to transform this material here.
