WSSI is owned and and operated by Mike Ludemann
WSSI (Wood Stabilizing Specialists, International, LLC) uses a unique, proprietary, process to stabilize hardwoods and softwoods. The WSSI process, developed as the result of over 10 years of research, development, testing, and production combines a special blend of monomers and acrylics to stabilize wood. We do not laminate; we achieve complete penetration and stabilize materials in original form, with no change other than color/figure enhancement and a high degree of permanent durability. Our process is resistant to temperature changes, humidity extremes, U.V. light, saltwater, many acids and solvents. We can stabilize large rough cut blocks, or individual "Preforms". We stabilize softwoods, making them more durable than non-stabilzed hardwoods. If need be, we can assist you in finding that special wood you might be looking for.
