wood modification and weathering erosion


(Pinus ponderosa) produced modified wood with properties similar to chromic acid-treated wood. Evaluation of the chromium (111) nitrate- and chromic acid-modified wood by leaching Xenon arc- accelerated weathering and swellometer experiments clearly demonstrated similar fixation erosion and water-repellent properties.【Get Price】

Wood Modification: Chemical Thermal and Other Processes | Wiley

This book is exclusively concerned with wood modification although many of these processes are generic and can be applied to other lignocellulosic materials. There have been many rapid developments in wood modification over the past decade and in particular there has been considerable progress made in the commercialisation of technologies. Topics covered include: The use of timber in the 【Get Price】

Weathering properties of wood-plastic composites based on heat-treated

The reduced wood particle exposure during weathering in the case of HTWPC (TW-D) could be due to improved compatibility between the heat-treated wood particles and polymer matrix. In general it can be concluded that the use of heat-treated wood particles in WPC production can significantly increase its UV resistance.【Get Price】

Blasting and erosion wear of wood using sodium bicarbonate and plastic

Wood erosion wear experiment set-up The wood erosion wear experiment was conducted in a Mangum blasting machine manufactured by Hess & Associates Inc. The machine used a venturi-type blasting gun with a 6.35-mm inner diameter nozzle made of aluminum oxide. Since the media used in this study were relatively soft nozzle wear was not a problem.【Get Price】

Weathering of wood | Treesearch

Our houses are usually made of wood and the outermost barrier to the weather is often wood or a wood-based product (siding windows decks roofs etc.). If these wood products are to achieve a long service life we must understand the weathering process and develop wood treatments to retard this degradation.【Get Price】

Effects of chemical modification with glutaraldehyde on the weathering

Wood is susceptible to abiotic erosion and biotic attack when it is exposed outdoors. As an effective protecting strategy chemical modification can partly alter the polymeric structure of the wood cell wall and thereby improve the durability.【Get Price】


wood surface. As weathering continues rainwater washes out degraded portions and further erosion takes place (Figs. 2 and 3). Because of different types of wood tissue on the surface erosion and checking differ in intensity and the wood surface becomes increasingly uneven. Hardwoods erode more slowly than do softwoods.【Get Price】

A Method for Accelerated Natural Weathering of Wood Subsurface and Its

The function of altering weathering factors and degradation mechanisms are essential for understanding the weathering process of materials. The goal of this work was to develop a method for the acceleration of natural weathering and to investigate the molecular microstructure and macrostructure degradation of wood caused by the process. Tests were performed in the whole month of July which 【Get Price】

What is Weathering? What Are Types Of Weathering? | Geology Page

Weathering is breaking down rocks soil and minerals as well as wood and artificial materials by contacting the atmosphere water and biological organisms of the Earth. Weathering takes place in situ i.e. in the same place with little or no movement.【Get Price】

These phenomena work using different mechanisms however they lead to the same result of a performance loss of wood and coatings. Strategies to protect wood against weathering include wood modifications or the application of coatings (Nuopponen et al. 2004; Williams 2005; Hill 2007; Baur and Easteal 2013).

Weathering of wood modified with the N-methylol compound 13-dimethylol

Compared to biological wood decay weathering is a superficial phenomenon since the penetration of UV light in earlywood and in latewood is not deeper than 200 μm . The rate of surface erosion of wood during natural weathering is 0.6–1.3 cm per century . The main problem arising from weathering is loss of the aesthetic appearance of wood 【Get Price】
