The stabilization of wood in the puq process was developed in 2002 by my father Reiner Hochmuth. In this process, we produce a versatile hybrid material that has been used and appreciated in the knife-making, jewelry, and sports industry for over 20 years. The hardening and dyeing of natural wood with acrylic glass provides you with a sustainable, durable, and non-toxic alternative to tropical hardwoods and can be fully customized to your and your customers' needs. This special material is not only beautiful but also offers all the common advantages of wood stabilization. Since 2017, I have taken over the management of the business and continued my father's successful work.
The term "plexiwood" describes the further development of the proven process technology that we have been using since 2004. To meet the increased quality requirements of our customers, we have now found a solution to the problem of cracks and holes that occur in natural wood. The new plexiwood technology offers you a completely hole and crack-free material that can be processed like conventional wood. We also use only lightfast, abrasion-resistant, and food-safe dyes that guarantee a long service life and represent a superior alternative to common epoxy resins. Plexiwood is suitable for a variety of applications, so try it out and discover the countless possibilities that our versatile material offers you!
(Poly)methyl methacrylate was developed by Otto Röhm in 1902 and is characterized by excellent biocompatibility. Originally used in the dental industry, the first clinical application of PMMA in 1938 was the repair of skull defects in monkeys. In the 1940s, surgeons began using PMMA for reconstructive surgery in humans. The companies Degussa and Kulzer established a process for the chemical production of PMMA bone cement with tertiary aromatic amines, which still exists today. The Judet brothers were the first to use PMMA to manufacture a hip prosthesis in 1949. Sir John Charnley successfully fixed an intramedullary stem prosthesis with self-polymerizing PMMA bone cement in 1958. It is still the most commonly used material for fixing joint prostheses. PMMA has proven to be a versatile and durable biomaterial in orthopedics, spine, and oncological surgery.
Stabilization in the uni-color process uses one full color (transparent, RYB (Red-Yellow-Blue) or black in any shade)
The bi-color process uses two full colors in combination. The balance of the colors can be adjusted at the customer's request.
In the tri-Color process, the piece is dyed in three stages. This results in a zonal coloring, which appears in two to five colors depending on the third color chosen.
