Improvement of Surface Properties of Low Density Wood: Mechanical Modification with Heat TreatmentCompleted

Project leaders: Gong, Meng
 

Objective:

Hardened and impregnated wood are new materials that present new product opportunities for the wood product industry. These new materials have different properties and applications than untreated wood. Conducted in parallel with the Forintek project titled: Improving Wood Hardness and Dimensional Stability by Densification and Impregnation, this project will focus on producing mechanically modified wood by expanding their end uses.

  • enhance the current surface hardening technology of combining mechanical densification and chemical impregnation to produce wood with various levels of surface hardness that suit selected end applications; and
  • expand markets and extend use for low-density wood.

Start date: 2005-04-01 End date: 2007-03-31
