Stabilization is a seventeen hour process that begins with four hours of vacuum to draw out air and moisture. The vacuum is slowly released and a 110 degree mixture of monomer resins and acrylics are introduced and then set to a pressure of 4000psi for seven hours. This pressure is slowly released and the wood is autoclaved, (heat treated) , for four more hours in order to activate the hardener.
