Woodoo’s patented technology allows to
upgrade all wood species into
high-performance advanced materials
- Woodoo’s patented technology allows to upgrade all wood species (especially unused low-grade wood such as aspen, poplar or birch for maximum environmental and economic impact), into high-performance advanced materials.
- The technology we have developed extracts air and lignin from wood’s cellular makeup while keeping intact its structural integrity, and reinforces it in-situ with a bio-based polymer increasing tenfold the material’s performance: weatherproof, fire-resistant, mechanically strong, and durable.
- The process enables to produce lignin with a high purity grade, allowing to sell the by-product on the specialty chemistry market to reduce Woodoo’s cost.
- Consequently, starting from low-grade wood, the material will be 30% cheaper than premium wood and 50% cheaper than exotic wood with higher performance and no maintenance costs.

WE PROVIDE MAGIC FOR MANY
- thin section products
1mm thick sheets – ideal for HMI
Our first range features thin section products (in approximately 1 mm thick sheets), ideal for applications in Human-to-Machine interfaces. Our technology transforms any inert decorative surfaces in the automotive interior into multimedia interfaces, integrating information, control commands, and new interactive features. The tactile-capacitive properties of our intelligent material will also open a radically new horizon in the user experience and home automation, for very diversified application sectors.
- thick section products
Our second range features thick section products (17 mm boards), ideal for facade components. Our material is cost-competitive, has a low-carbon footprint (3 times less than a concrete façade, 17 times less than a glass one, and 130 less than a metal cladding) and triggers new creative uses for architects as it features unique aesthetic qualities. The material is fully recyclable and easy to manufacture once processed.
Woodoo’s highest impact in the long run is in the construction sector, with even thicker sections (beams), unlocking the spread of low-carbon wooden construction worldwide. The city of tomorrow will be built out of wood, dense and carbon neutral.
WHERE THE MAGIC
The car industry is looking for new materials and interior technologies as design elements to increase passenger experience, especially for high end and automated vehicles. They want to decrease vehicle weight to reduce CO² emissions, use bio-based UV-resistant materials with low VOC emissions. Woodoo’s translucent quality, robustness and thickness-sturdiness ratio makes it better than any other material on the market.
For car interior elements, it can replace natural wood – which is expensive, fragile and requires intensive craftsmanship. For car bodies, it can replace steel, carbon fiber and aluminum to produce lightweight chassis.
Woodoo augmented wood is mechanically extremely strong, weatherproof, decay resistant, fire resistant and sustainable. The construction industry is under pressure to meet environmental standards and secure green building labels, while reducing use of endangered exotic woods.
Demand for large wood constructions is increasing. Woodoo offers an alternative to premium wood, and can eventually replace concrete, glass and steel in certain use cases.
Translucent, waterproof and varnish-free wood can be used for high-end furniture. Wood is in high demand, influenced by north European design trends.
The industry is looking for attractive and performative material, particularly for outdoor use. Currently exotic and endangered wood (teak, ipe) is used. Woodoo can offer a sustainable and cost-effective alternative.
LUXURY, PACKAGING AND DESIGN
Woodoo’s unique translucent qualities are ideal for high-end product packaging and display stands.
Brands are always searching for iconic materials and textures to differentiate and promote products such as perfume and jewelry. Customers are interested in natural materials and eco-friendly products, and brands have increased their RSE spending to ensure sustainability.
