Key properties of Paulownia

The reason why we use the paulownia for storage boxes.

01. Lightweight and durable

Paulownia is the lightest Japanese wood (the second in the world), so it’s easy to carry, and durable.

02. Humidity control

Paulownia absorbs and releases moisture to maintain the moisture content of the atmosphere. This constant humidity is an important condition when storing items.

03. Insect repellent

Paulownia contains natural components, a large amount of paulonin, sesamin, etc., which are proven to repel insects.

04. Corrosion resistant

Paulownia contains a large amount of tannin, which is corrosive resistant.

05. Low heat resistant

Paulownia’s closed cell structure contains a lot of air inside, so it is difficult for heat to be transmitted and it is difficult to burn.

06. Low shrinkage

When dried, paulownia has little distortion or deformation and can be processed with precision with little cracking.
