is a new kind of wood trademarked by the US Trademarks and Patents
PinkheartTM wood is wood whose naturally rosy glow has been enhanced to produce a true
pink coloration, similar to the strong pink color that occurs naturally in certain rare types of wood such as Pink Ivory and
Box Elder. Unlike the pink coloration of Pink Ivory, whose color tends to fade, the color of PinkheartTM is
designed to last.
The treatment process includes an application of propriety ingredients mixed with artesian
water naturally sourced from the Sourland Mountains of New Jersey. The treatment is applied to locally-sourced types of lumber
that are commercially available. Softwoods such as fir, pine, and spruce are used as the base since the porous nature of such
coniferous woods readily absorbs and accepts the treatment. Following treatment, the wood is sealed with a clear water-based
urethane to lock-in the color. The restult is that the wood's natural rosy glow is highlighted and enhanced to produce lasting
blush and true pink tones along the vertical grains. Hand treatment of the application by skilled artisans ensures an attractive
and natural-looking heartwood/sapwood effect.
Advantages of PinkheartTM include good color retention, non-toxic treatment, use of non-endangered species, and a beautiful
and unforgettable look that is found in nature in very small quantities but is now available on an affordable scale.
PinkheartTM is ideal for panneling, wainsoting, ceilings, trim, shelving, and furniture. As with most softwoods, it is
best used for indoor applications. Exterior applications are not recommended.
Hello! I am Dr. Mary Albanese. I have always loved
the colors of exotic woods, particularly the pink found in woods such as Box Elder and Pink Ivory. When building
my house, I searched for lumber with true pink patterns to line a cathedral ceiling. I found it didn't commercially exist.
To get it, I had to develop it.
you can get it, too!
