Anti-Asthmatics And COPD Drugs Market: Covid 19 Implications And Growth

Anti-Asthmatics And COPD Drugs Market: Covid 19 Implications And Growth- By Type Of Therapy, By Drug Class, By End-Users | Global Forecast To 2030

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, June 3, 2020 / — The unprecedented outbreak of coronavirus has caused a surge in demand for essential pharmaceutical drugs, some bronchodilators, and medical devices including anti-asthmatics and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) drugs. With governments across the world advising people to stay indoors and practice social distancing, to reduce the spread of the pandemic, individuals are hoarding these medications. This has created a sudden rise in demand for anti-asthmatics and COPD drugs. Anti-asthmatics and COPD drug companies should closely monitor the situation and increase the supply of essential medicines and other medical devices for 3 to 6 months. Additionally, some anti-asthmatic and COPD drugs such as albuterol are being used in the treatment of COVID-19. In the wake of the pandemic, companies should focus on modifying their supply chain activities to maximize the output to keep up with the rising demand for these drugs.

The global anti-asthmatics and COPD drugs market will grow from $40,162 million in 2019 to around $47,176 million in 2023 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.1%.

People with asthma or COPD are at a greater risk of worsening complications from COVID-19. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), people suffering from asthma are at higher risk of getting affected from COVID-19, because the illness can affect the respiratory tract which is the nose, throat, and lungs, and cause an asthma attack. Also, COVID-19 may lead to pneumonia and acute respiratory disease among people suffering with asthma. Increasing use of anti-asthmatics and COPD drugs in the treatment of COVID-19 is expected to drive the market in the near forecast period.

Coronavirus, which originated in the Wuhan province of China, later spread globally. Several anti-asthmatics and COPD drugs such as albuterol are being used in the treatment of COVID. With the medication for COVID-19 still in the research phase, doctors around the world are increasingly using anti-asthmatics to treat the symptoms of COVID-19. This is expected to increase the demand for anti-asthmatics in the near future, and thereby drive the market for anti-asthmatics and COPD drugs.

Companies in the anti-asthmatics and COPD drugs market are offering drugs for customized individual treatment for better treatment against asthma and COPD. Personalized medicine, also referred to as precision medicine, aims to provide medical care according to the patient’s individual characteristics, needs, preferences, and genetic makeup. Companies such as GSK, Teva Pharmaceuticals, and AstraZeneca have already invested in personalized medicine for respiratory issues such as asthma. For example, in 2018, Mount Sinai partnered with Sema4 and Sanofi for a five-year, multisite study aimed at advancing precision medicine therapies for asthma patients.

Morrow Batteries to build the first giga battery cell factory in Norway

Morrow Batteries will build battery cell production in Norway in order to meet increasing market demand and lead the drive for more sustainable batteries.

OSLO, NORWAY, June 3, 2020 / — Morrow Batteries will in the coming years build and rapidly scale up battery cell production in Norway in order to meet increasing market demand and lead the drive for more sustainable batteries.

Dual-track technology strategy
To meet the rapidly increasing demand Morrow will initially manufacture cells based on the currently best available technology. However, Morrow inherits a technology platform which will, within the next decade, enable the factory to produce batteries that would be more sustainable, more cost effective and have better performance than the current generation of battery technology.

Green and cost-competitive cell factory
The giga battery cell factory will be located in the Agder region in the south of Norway which has a significant surplus of competitively priced renewable energy. It is also very close to a number of suppliers of critical raw materials and key European markets. This will enable the factory to become both highly cost competitive and one of the greenest battery factories in the world. Significant amount of upstream processes such as precursor preparation and active material synthesis, to the actual cell manufacturing and close loop recycling, will be 100% powered by renewable energy.

The Agder region also has a long tradition and a strong base of globally competitive electro-chemical process industry. This will help secure the factory with a highly skilled and experienced workforce.

Strong and committed industrial owners
The two lead investors of Morrow are Agder Energi and NOAH, owning 39% and 40% respectively. Agder Energi is one of the largest producers of renewable energy in Norway. It is partly owned by Statkraft, Norway’s state-owned renewable power producer, and a number of municipalities in Agder county. NOAH is an industrial company owned by the investor Bjørn Rune Gjelsten, who has a long history of building industry in Norway.

Towards a more sustainable battery
One of the key tenets of Morrows strategy is to significantly improve the environmental impact of batteries. Morrow’s strong environmental focus reflects the fact that one of the initiators of Morrow is the environmental foundation Bellona and its founder Frederic Hauge. Bellona has a long history and commitment to the environmental cause since it’s foundation in 1986.

As early as 1988, Frederic Hauge and Bellona imported the first electric car to Norway together with the well-known pop group A-ha in their fight for electrification, resulting in a range of favorable regulatory changes for electric cars. 20 years later, in 2009, he met with Elon Musk and Tesla. He then became convinced that the battery revolution for cars was here. Bellona teamed up with Tesla to introduce the company to the Norwegian and European market. Tesla choose to start up Tesla sales in Norway as one of first countries outside USA and has since been a success story. It is safe to say that the sustained effort from Bellona has speed up the transition to electric cars.

In 2010, Bellona started to scout for more environmentally friendly ways to produce batteries. As part of this process, Bellona came across Graphene Batteries which was working on Lithium-Sulfur technology development. Graphene Batteries has since achieved significant technological breakthroughs that have been independently validated by Fraunhofer, Europe's largest application-oriented research organization.

In 2017, Bellona became partner and co-owner of Graphene Batteries through the company BEBA, with NOAH as a seed investor. In 2020, BEBA, NOAH and Graphene Batteries joined forces with Agder Energi to establish Morrow Batteries. BEBA will continue as the Bellona Foundation’s company to accelerate battery ventures and industry.

Terje Andersen, who is currently partner and EMEIA digital innovation leader at EY, has been appointed as CEO of Morrow.

Hansen Analytics Releases CriticalH2O Cloud Services to Streamline Potable Water Leak Reporting

Hansen Analytics' CriticalH2O communicates multi-supplier leak detection data from the field to the office in minutes, not day or weeks, to locate & quantify leaks to dramatically reduce leak scheduling, repair, and contractor quality assurance testing.

Hansen Analytics’ CriticalH2O communicates multi-supplier leak detection data from the field to the office in minutes, not day or weeks, to locate & quantify leaks to dramatically reduce leak scheduling, repair, and contractor quality assurance testing.

Acoustic listening devices attempt to triangulate leak locations on metallic pipes, but problematic in testing for leaks on newer plastic pipes.

New Platform Consolidates Multi-Supplier Field Surveys in Minutes, Not Days or Weeks, Dramatically Reducing Time to Prioritize, Schedule, & Complete Repairs

CriticalH2O substantially reduces the time to pinpoint and quantify pipeline leaks – from days or weeks to minutes – to help limit customer service interruptions.”

— Chuck Hansen, Chairman & Founder, Hansen Analytics LLC

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA, USA, June 3, 2020 / — Hansen Analytics LLC announced today the release of its new CriticaH2O cloud data services platform to dramatically reduce reporting & consolidation of pressurized water pipeline leak location inspection surveys, from days or weeks to minutes. The new internet-based solution substantially reduces the time needed to prioritize, schedule, complete, and document pipeline repairs, including estimating pipe defects in gallons per minute or liters per second. This advancement will significantly reduce customer service interruptions.

"CriticalH2O substantially reduces the time to pinpoint and quantify leaks – from days or weeks to minutes – including estimated flow rates, to help select, schedule and conduct quality assurance testing, and limit customer service interruptions," stated Chuck Hansen, Chairman & Founder, Hansen Analytics LLC.

The announcement coincides with this week's 2020 BlueTech Forum where one of Hansen Analytics' data partners, Electro Scan Inc., is featured as part of the conference's Innovation Showcase.

"Despite the installation of sophisticated real-time sensors or meters, sometimes at every hydrant in a community, the accurate location of leaks and estimating quantities can take days or weeks," stated Hansen.

Leakage control activities must often be scheduled late at night when traffic noises and residential water use is minimal, and less likely to interfere or provide false-positive instrument readings.

Listening sticks, first used over 100 years ago to find leaks, are still used by many utilities to walk potential leak locations before using acoustic data correlators to triangulate locations, which at times are impossible to use effectively on now commonly used plastic pipes.

And, even with the best of care, too much time is spent trying to identify what become "low quality" leaks that result in misguided pipe excavations.

Sometimes utilities only find a confirmed leak in one out of several digging attempts, with subsequent costly repairs only marginally able to improve customer service interruptions.

Since detecting and locating leaks can often take 2-5 times as long as the actual leak repair, shortening the 'leak life' is a major improvement offered by this new technology.

Hansen is a leading authority on the topics of water leak detection, pipe condition assessment, rehabilitation, cloud-based technologies, and creating digital twins, i.e., creating duplicate electronic representations of field infrastructure and their condition.

In addition to being former Chair, Subcommittee F36.20 on Inspection and Renewal of Water and Wastewater Infrastructure, American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), Hansen founded a leading enterprise asset management company in 1983, specializing on sewer and water infrastructure, selling the privately-held Hansen Information Technologies to Infor Global in 2007.

Today, Hansen is a member of the Water Main Condition Assessment Committee, American Water Works Association (AWWA), recently publishing its first edition AWWA M77 guidelines for condition assessment, and works as an Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) investor advising a California venture capital firm and a board member at several new technology start-ups.

In addition to standard pipe material, diameter, location, pressure, and pipe length information on each pipe, the CriticalH20 platform is able to store acoustic, closed-circuit television (CCTV) videos, helium tracer, pressure transient, and new low voltage conductivity inspection survey data, among others, from single survey applications or from vendors supplying multi-sensor survey data.

Hansen is working with several partners, including Innovyze®, to deliver comprehensive decision support, rehabilitation selection, and CAPEX planning, using leakage data just minutes after collected in the field using CriticalH2O's powerful data storage capabilities.

Hansen's CriticalH20 cloud application is licensed as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) representing a companion cloud application to its well-known CriticalSewers® solution for gravity pipe inspection survey data.

Currently, hosting databases from over 700 customers worldwide at an off-site secured facility, real-time accessibility of data allows water tightness testing of new pipes to be communicated to utility managers and their engineers in the office while repair crews are still in the field, confirming pipe leak elimination, even in plastic pipes.

Many newly rehabilitated pipes, often using Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) materials, cannot be inspected using traditional acoustic listening devices or TV cameras and are unable to be pressure tested due to numerous customer connections.

As a result, working with next generation technology providers, Hansen cloud applications have been able to accumulate over 7 years of CIPP leak performance data, organized by lining supplier, contractor, curing method, and host pipe material, locating unseen & unheard leaks in permeable liners to within 1cm and helping determine remaining useful life.

"Not all leak technologies deliver good data," stated Hansen. "Some must be used in combination with others to confirm areas of concern, while others claim to measure things like 'remaining wall thickness' that can't be replicated using sophisticated multi-physics benchmarking tools."

But, new and more precise technologies are on the horizon, just being introduced to an industry where a recent study found that only a few technologies are able to quantify leaks in gallons per minute or liters per second – signaling an urgent need to allow utilities to fix the worst pipes first, thereby achieving greater returns from limited capital investments.

Founded in 2006, Hansen is dedicated to aggregating municipal and investor-owned utility data to streamline decision support. Founding Hansen Software in 1983 (later called Hansen Information Technologies), principals of Hansen Analytics are pioneers in municipal & utility asset data science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and utility management helping thousands of cities and utilities create digital twin environments to help decipher and interpret operational, financial, and capital efficiencies.

dynaCERT Inc. on Haywood Securities’ radar, ESG benefactor ready to scale

dynaCERT HG unit on diesel truck

dynaCERT Inc. . (TSX-V: DYA) manufactures and distributes Carbon Emission Reduction Technology for use with internal combustion engines.

dynaCERT Inc. (TSX-V:DYA)

The stock is tightly held with ~30% in the hands of insiders, 20% in family office holdings, and 10% to well known mining financier Eric Sprott, who invested $14 MM into the Company in November 2019.”

— Haywood Securities

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, June 3, 2020 / — dynaCERT Inc. (TSX-V: DYA) (OTCQB: DYFSF) (Frankfurt: DMJ) is the subject of coverage by analysts at Haywood Securities which issued an ‘Uncovered Radar Flash – Watchlist Report’ on June 2, 2020 entitled “An ESG Benefactor; A Carbon Emission Reduction Technology that Took Years to Perfect is Now Ready to Scale”. Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) investment themes are accelerating in interest and Haywood securities has identified dynaCERT Inc. as a top candidate for portfolio consideration.

The full report may be viewed at online.

dynaCERT’s HydraGENTM (HG) technology is proven (on diesel trucks) to result in up to 88.7% reduction in NOx emissions, ~50% reduction in CO, 6-19% reduction in CO2, up to 57.1% reduction in Total Hydrocarbon emissions, 55%+ reduction in particulate matter (no black smoke), and up to ~20% reduction in fuel consumption.

In the report the analysts from Haywood Securities provide a synopsis of dynaCERT’s technology product and the opportunity for investors. Key highlight sections include, 1) Perfecting the product, 2) Ready to scale with strategic partnerships, and 3) Value Proposition to end-user is attractive and more than just a green initiative.

The report discusses how the investment landscape has changed in the last year and that timing is right for an opportunity to scale ESG technologies. The Haywood analysts also discuss dynaCERT’s production capabilities, margins, and provide a rough 12-month forecast with both a Base Case and an Upside Case scenario;

Base Case (full capacity) = 24,000 units/yr. Revenue (as C$6,200/unit) = C$148M in revenues … Gross Profit (at 50% GM) = C$74M.
Upside Case (3 shifts) = 72,000 units/yr. Revenue (at C$6,200/unit) = C$446M in revenues … Gross Profit (at 50% GM) = C$223M.

Additionally, the analysts point out the future potential for recurring revenue streams from carbon credit revenue as an attractive added value proposition.

The Haywood analyst opinions mirror many of the points of the independent investment bank GBC AG, headquartered in Augsburg, Germany which currently has a near-term C$2/share price target on TSX-V: DYA. The GBC AG investment bank issued a conviction “BUY” recommendation several months earlier and outlines a pathway for significantly higher price potential (well beyond $2/share) via a multi-phase adoption curve covering three distinct product lines (each requiring their own set of specialized competences in various fields); 1) HydraGEN TM, 2) HydraLytica TM (dynaCERT’s proprietary software with remote real-time telematics which the Company has retained worldwide experts to establish an audit trail of fuel savings and future carbon credits), and 3) dynaCERT's carbon credit management system.

Indiegogo Campaign Launches for Copper-Based Everyday Safety Gear

ANGOLA, INDIANA, USA, June 2, 2020 / — An Indiegogo campaign has recently launched to fund the manufacturing of CuShield, a series of copper-based EDS products that protect people from viruses and bacteria. The team behind CuShield is offering Indiegogo exclusive discounts on their products in their efforts to raise $5,000 by July 14.

Douglas McGregor is the inventor of CuShield, a brand of everyday personal protective safety gear that uses copper to prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria. With his background in chemical engineering, Douglas knew that copper's antimicrobial properties, if incorporated in the right way, could be used to keep people's hands clean and protected from pathogens found on common surfaces.

This is because copper is able to destroy the majority of virus and bacteria on contact. Copper, unlike other antimicrobial materials, does not require moisture to work and continues to function even as it becomes oxidized or tarnished. As a result, copper has been used to stop the spread of illness for centuries.

The funds raised by the Indiegogo campaign will go toward the production of three different CuShield products: the easy-to-fold handkerchief, the self-retracting stylus, and the inversion pouch. These multi-products are designed to be as convenient to use and store as possible, ensuring that one never has to touch contact surfaces.

CuShield products are also far more environmentally friendly than their alternatives. While hand-washing is one of the most effective ways of preventing the spread of bacteria and viruses, it isn't always a realistic option for people on the go. Frequent use of rubber gloves, wipes, and hand sanitizer appear to be good substitutes, but these disposable options result in tons of waste. CuShield products not only protect the user but others around them, stopping the spread of contagions.

The CuShield stylus, handkerchief, and pouch can be washed by hand or sanitized to maintain their appearance, but regular cleaning isn't necessary. Although the products may naturally develop a patina over time, this doesn't impact their effectiveness. Given the quality of materials used in its manufacturing, CuShield gear can be used for years. This allows their products to be more affordable than having to routinely purchase hand sanitizer and rubber gloves.

There are various tiers for contributors, all with Indiegogo exclusive discounts on CuShield gear. The lowest is $14, which comes with one EDS stylus, with the discounted handkerchief for $17, and the pouch for $27. Those interested in having all three can contribute to the $59 early bird deal.

COVID-19 Causing Emergency Plumber Needs Throughout NY Suffolk County Bay Shore Long Island

Emergency plumber Suffolk NY

Emergency plumber Suffolk NY

To reduce the spread of COVID-19, people are sanitizing more than ever using disinfecting wipes. Such items should be tossed and not flushed down the toilet.

All our technicians are licensed, certified, and trained in the newest industry technology. You'll get friendly plumbers and contractors with over 30 years of experience to provide superior services.”

— Rob Perticone

BAY SHORE, NY, UNITED STATES, June 1, 2020 / — To help reduce the worldwide spread of the COVID-19 Pandemic we have all been facing, people are cleaning and sanitizing more than ever and using disinfecting wipes in hopes of keeping their families safe. It is important to throw those items away in the trash and not flush those extra cleaning supplies down the toilet. Rob P., of Mr. Pipe Plumbing (Emergency Plumber Bay Shore), states, "We have had many plumbing problems relating to backed-up toilets due to people disposing of these items by flushing them down the toilet." As a result of not disposing of these items properly, it has caused many people the need to contact an emergency plumbing service. Mr. Pipe Plumbing, an Emergency Plumber Bay Shore, has seen a significant rise in such issues.

More information is available on the Long Island Plumber company's website;

Dealing with a backed-up toilet is not fun and there are some things you can do to help avoid this from occurring in your home or office. Homeowners and business owners are dealing with backed-up toilets because they are just not aware of what is safe and not safe to flush down toilets. Flushing paper towels, baby wipes, and feminine products are not good to flush and will cause backed-up toilets very quickly. These items are not made to break down in our wastewater systems and are harmful to our wastewater treatment companies. Flushing these items can harm the sewage line pumps and filters creating plumbing problems throughout Suffolk County including backed-up toilets. Are you aware that flushing wipes that say they are “flushable” can also clog pipes and can be the reason you are dealing with a toilet stopped up in your home or office? We recommend always having a small wastebasket next to your toilet to dispose of these items correctly to avoid creating a backed-up toilet plumbing problem.

This is a big problem for wastewater treatment companies around Suffolk County New York. These companies are asking homeowners and business owners to only throw regular toilet paper down their toilets and avoid throwing paper towels, baby wipes, feminine napkins including tampons down the toilet which is the result of many plumbing problems in the area. These items need to be disposed of in a trash can. Wipes, paper towels, and feminine products will not break down like toilet paper does and will clog systems causing you the need to contact an emergency plumbing service.

Flushing wipes are one of the main reasons for backed-up toilets and plumbing problems in the Suffolk County New York area. This has created a major problem with sewer systems and pumps. Public health and environmental concerns have also become an issue as many of our spills go into oceans, rivers, and lakes. To help protect our environment and public health it is important for everyone to do their part in helping to prevent sewer spills. This is even more important during the COVID-19 Pandemic we are currently dealing with. Please do your part in helping to keep our environment safe and dispose of things properly to avoid unnecessarily backed-up toilets and plumbing problems.

Mr. Pipe Plumbing offers a range of services that set them apart from other plumbing service providers of Long Island by always offering free estimates on all their services. "You will always know the full cost of your repair prior to any work being done. That's not typical with most plumbers," Rob Perticone, Owner, explains. The benefit of free estimates is that all the pricing for each service is provided upfront. This means there are no hidden extras or additional charges to worry about.

Regardless of the customer’s needs, they can rely on Mr. Pipe for honesty, reliability, and loyalty. All plumbing services are carried out by trained and certified professionals, and customers have peace of mind from knowing that they will have thorough and dependable services.

The company states, “All our technicians are licensed and certified as well as highly trained to stay updated with the newest industry technologies. You'll get friendly plumbers and contractors with over 30 years of experience to provide superior services.”

Among the emergency plumbing services, the company offers are heater services for HVAC systems, residential boilers, and air conditioning. Plumbing services include plumbing system maintenance, clogged drain services, pipework, leak repair, and sump pumps.

Customers can avoid expensive plumbing system issues and improve the performance and longevity of their equipment through high quality and affordable services.

Further, Mr. Pipe Plumbing is offering a $25 coupon for all emergency service calls throughout 2020. Those wishing to find out more can visit the company website above or download the coupon from their Google Page at:

Allied Feather and Down Expands Reusable Mask Production Globally as Evidence of Effectiveness Continues to Mount

It is becoming increasingly clear that disposable mask usage is not sustainable at its current trajectory.

Impact of public mask wearing under the full range of mask adherence and efficacy scenarios. The color indicates the resulting reproduction number Re from an initial R0 of 2.4 (7). Blue area is what is needed to slow the spread of COVID-19.

With sustainability at its core, Allied is keeping disposable masks out of landfills as it continues to keep people safe with treated, reusable, cotton masks.

While we understand the critical need to use face masks, we fear disposable masks are already becoming the new cigarette butt.”

— Steve Uretsky, founder and CEO of Los Angeles-based ALLIED Feather + Down

MONTEBELLO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 1, 2020 / — Before the onset of a global COVID-19 pandemic, ALLIED Feather & Down and ALLIED Home were focused, as they had been for 30 years, on creating a more sustainable supply chain and a cleaner home.

As ALLIED shifted its bedding division production in its Commerce, Calif., manufacturing facility to produce facemasks in early March, the family owned company began to realize just how big this need was going to be on a global scale.

While the response focused at first on healthcare workers and disenfranchised populations such as those experiencing homelessness, ongoing concerns about the spread of disease has highlighted just how many people are vulnerable — including critical frontline service providers necessary for everyday life.

By now it is widely reported that American healthcare workers are facing a shortage of facemasks and other PPE as we continue to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, but they are not the only ones at risk. “When we started producing masks in our Commerce facility, we never imagined the extent and volume of the need. When we starting talking to our hospitality and institutional partners, it became clear that we could install the same mask manufacturing program in all our global facilities to help serve the needs of all these front line service workers that put their health at risk to help make our lives easier,” said Steve Uretsky, founder and CEO of Los Angeles-based Allied Feather + Down.

In April, the global supplier of down and home bedding began the conversions of its bedding manufacturing facilities in Asia, Europe, and at a new facility opening in Montreal. ALLIED has now gone from shipping between 10,000 to 15,000 masks a day, to providing millions of reusable cotton masks to service-industry providers. By the end of May, ALLIED will be shipping more than 3,000,000 masks to prominent hotels and resorts, with the ability to add capacity as needed.

According to, new research shows that universal mask-wearing helps slow the spread of COVID-19: “New York City, with a population of about 8.4 million, has had over 28,000 coronavirus deaths as of May 18. Meanwhile, Hong Kong has officially recorded only four COVID-19 deaths, despite having 7.5 million residents. One reason that could help explain the stark disparity: In Hong Kong, nearly everyone wears a face mask in public.” According to data from the University of San Francisco, universal mask-wearing could be one of the most important tools in tackling the spread of COVID-19. Researchers cite a medical study currently under peer review which shows that more people wearing “less effective” reusable, non-medical masks is just as effective as medical grade masks.

However, this widespread use of disposable masks comes with a heavy impact on the environment. Unfortunately, disposable masks are not sustainable by definition at this scale, and the environmental nightmare this has the potential to become has not fallen on deaf ears. Already in Hong Kong, discarded masks are washing up on beaches and posing a threat to marine life.

“While we understand the critical need to use face masks, we fear disposable masks are already becoming the new cigarette butt. We found that what we did with our bedding factory in Montebello could be used as a model for our global facilities in Asia, Europe and Canada to offer our hospitality industry associates masks that help keep their employees safe while doing so in a way that is also beneficial for the planet and cost effective over the long term,” continued Uretsky. “By repurposing existing fabrics and creating a product that remains effective through washing, we can help minimize the use of disposable masks that are already starting to become a blight on the landscape.“

TELFORD, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, June 1, 2020 / — reSAWN TIMBER co. is proud to be the exclusive manufacturer and distributor of ABODO® thermally modified Vulcan cladding and decking products in the USA.

Based in New Zealand, ABODO prides itself on producing a range of beautiful and durable timber solutions that are safe, sustainable, and renewable. The company has a strong ethos around ensuring its timber is ethically sourced and demonstrates extended producer responsibility. From milling to building, they respect their material, the people who use it, and where it comes from. For every tree milled, Abodo ensures it provides more than 30 years of service, which is as long as it takes to grow a replacement tree.

At reSAWN TIMBER co. we celebrate and visually leverage wood’s inherent tendency to weather over time by designing modern, high-performance, sustainable products that are meant to age in place with grace, so ABODO’s ethos was a natural fit. ABODO’s design ethos has two core components:

Lifetime Beauty
Abodo timbers are crafted to be enjoyed for years to come. Designed to age with grace, the timbers that age in place with grace, while maintaining durability and beauty for a lifetime.

With Tomorrow in Mind
ABODO timbers are harvested from New Zealand’s FSC® certified rapidly renewable plantation forests. They are ethically crafted with respect from beginning to end – allowing us to meet today’s increasing needs without disadvantaging future generations.

ABODO Vulcan Cladding
Vulcan thermally modified wood cladding is created from New Zealand plantation timber and engineered with a patented vertical grain orientation for superior weathering characteristics. A fine-sawn face provides beautiful grain depth and optimal coating performance.

The thermal modification process and vertical grain structure give Vulcan cladding superior stability and reduced resin content. It’s naturally durable so the timber doesn’t require any chemical preservatives, and has a beautiful, consistent brown tone.

Vulcan cladding is available in a range of architectural profiles and it’s supplied pre-finished in Abodo Protector Oil (Abodo’s high performance penetrating exterior oil), so there’s no need to finish boards on-site.

Benefits of Specifying ABODO Vulcan Cladding:
– Outstanding dimensional stability, resulting in less aesthetic maintenance and therefore less coating over the lifetime of the product.
– All ABODO wood is produced from well managed sustainable sources including FSC® and other regionally certified woods. reSAWN TIMBER co. holds an FSC® Chain of Custody Certification, as well.
– Low carbon footprint: Abodo wood is an environmentally compatible substitute for carbon-intensive materials.

– Vulcan has little or no corrosiveness on most metals (equivalent to untreated softwood) and can be placed in contact with most building materials Normal PVA, PU, MUF glues, and RF resins can be used.
– Expected dimensional change in structure: Width expansion approx. 0.25%, thickness expansion approx. 2.5%. Vulcan is approximately 50% more stable than flat sawn Radiata pine.
– Glue: New generation polyurethane adhesive – VOC, solvent, and formaldehyde-free.
– Thermally modified pine is resistant to most wood-boring insects.
– Weight: 2lbs/sf (lightweight cladding).
– ASTM D5824 – Delamination Resistance.

– reSAWN’s Exterior Oil Finish: One reSAWN TIMBER co. design (STERLING) is pre-finished with a non-toxic odor-free one-coat oil-based sealer for all types of exterior wood.

ABODO Vulcan Decking
ABODO for reSAWN decking is created from thermally modified New Zealand plantation timber. It’s treated with an organic preservative system that includes water repellent for superior durability.

The thermal modification process gives the material enhanced stability, reduced resin content, and is a beautiful homogeneous brown color. The premium-grade, reeded face has little to no corrosiveness to most metals and can be coated on site. It’s also compatible with our Sioo:x weathering treatment.

Benefits of Specifying Vulcan Decking
– Natural Stability – Vulcan Decking is manufactured with a vertical grain orientation, which means the timber has great stability, even in harsh conditions.
– Easy Fix – Abodo products do not require pre-drilling. That means you can install faster.
