Impact of Kiln drying and shipping conditions on micro checkingNew

Project leaders: Tremblay, Carl
 

Objective:

The general objective of the project is to validate three hypotheses concerning the formation of microchecking on the surface of appearance wood products. The specific objectives are to:

  • Evaluate the impact of climate changes during the transport and storage of glue-laminated panels on the formation of microchecking on the surface of the panels.
  • Study the effect of freezing in winter on the formation of microchecking on the surface of wood after it is removed from the dryer.
  • Evaluate the effect of ultraviolet (UV) drying systems for floorboard coatings on the formation of microchecking on the surface of the wood.
