tannins are the natural substances that plants use to protect wood. novel tannin based formulations were tested to evaluate their efficacy in preventing weathering degradation of the surfaces. scots pine and european beech specimens were treated with flavonoid based wood preservatives and exposed to artificial and,
the effect of freeze-thaw weathering on the tensile properties, and accelerated weathering with xenon-arc light on the color stability and the tensile properties of co-extruded wood–polypropylene composite loaded with different carbon fillers, such as carbon black, graphite, expandable graphite, carbon nanotubes, and,

1 ožu 2016 , the purpose of the study was to determine the influence of artificial weathering on selected properties of wood. this paper presents the changes of incompressive strength of wood along fi bers. the study involved wood of different,
jul 23, 2016 , the wood flour was pre-extracted with three different solvents, toluene/ethanol (te), acetone/water (aw), and hot water (hw), or sodium chlorite/acetic acid. the spectral properties of the composites before and after artificial weathering under accelerated conditions were characterized by fourier transform,
more detail on effects of different treatments on changing the surface properties of wood is discussed later in the chapter. in addition to deterioration caused by decay fungi and insects, wood-exposed outdoors go through some physical and chemical changes known as weathering. weathering degradation mainly affects the,
in addition to the length of time the wood can physically maintain its structural integrity, there's also the matter of a wood's weathering characteristics. weathering can't be as clearly expressed in a single number or measurement, but overall, woods with good weathering characteristics exhibit limited photo-degradation,
apr 2, 2008 , , factors and mechanisms responsible for such deterioration, and the ability of chemical treatments to prevent the weathering of wood. also included are the prospects for the development of more effective protection systems that restrict surface deterioration and protect the structural properties of wood.
as wood dries, its strength properties improve significantly when the moisture content falls below the saturation point of the grain. in the dimensioning of wooden , blue stain cannot develop at a temperature of less than +5 c. weathering does not essentially affect the strength of wood. the dependence of the moisture,
abstract. the purpose of this work is to compare the weathering properties of different types of wood-plastic composites (wpcs) based on high-density polyethylene (hdpe), recycled high-density polyethylene (rhdpe-i and rhdpe-ii), low-density polyethylene (ldpe), polypropylene (pp), recycled polypropylene (rpp),,
in accordance with these trends, wood elements are often left untreated. the presented study is aimed to characterize and compare a surface degradation of untreated wood caused by weathering. weathering characteristics of softwoods and hardwoods (spruce, pine, douglas fir, larch, oak, black locust, maple, poplar and,
oct 7, 2011 , timber has long been a staple construction material for domestic scale properties, although it is increasingly being used in high-profile structures such as the weald & downland gridshell. however, exposure to the elements can result in changes to the chemical and physical properties of wood, affecting its,
degradation on the physical properties, and methods for retarding or inhibiting degradation—it is possible to maximize the service life of all types of wood products in any type of climate. the purpose of this chapter is to describe the chemical and physical changes that occur to wood during weathering and explore methods,
mar 15, 2016 , the plasma system and the chosen parameters guarantee moderate temperatures that allow copper coating on thermosensitive materials like wood. the aim of this study is to evaluate its effect on weathering properties measuring loss of lignin and tensile strength, as well as changes in copper content and,
oct 18, 2017 , wood surfaces during accelerated weathering. miloš pánek *, eliška , the natural appearance of wood exteriors. keywords: artificial weathering; durability; hydrophobic coatings; oak wood , modifications changing the properties of wood in its entire volume, such as thermal treatment or acetylation, are a,
nov 18, 2013 , novel tannin based formulations were tested to evaluate their efficacy in preventing weathering degradation of the surfaces. scots pine and european beech specimens were treated with flavonoid based wood preservatives and exposed to artificial and natural weathering. the surface properties of the,
various experts have made some definitions of weathering (williams and feist 1999, evans 2009). the main factor that causes the greatest changes in the surface properties of wood during outdoor exposure is sunlight (tolvaj et al. 2011). because lignin is one of the main chemical components of wood, this aromatic,
thermal modification is known as a potential method to improve dimensional stabilization of wood and enhance its biological resistance. scots pine (pinus sylvestris), spruce (picea orientalis), ash (fraxinus spp.), tali (erythrophleum ivorense), and iroko (chlorophora excelsa) timbers were exposed to heat treatment at at a,
