Natural weathering of sixteen wood species: Changes on surface properties
(Elsevier Sci Ltd, 2021)
In this study, natural weathering behavior of sixteen different wood species was investigated under the same conditions in order to clarify the resistance against outdoor degrading agents regarding wood color, gloss, surface ...
An investigation of surface properties of thermally modified wood during natural weathering for 48 months
(Elsevier Sci Ltd, 2018)
Weathering period and exposure conditions can affect the degradation rate of wood surfaces. Longer weathering exposure periods are more reliable for end-use performance evaluations, and therefore it is desirable to investigate ...
Effect of artificial weathering on the properties of heat treated wood
(Elsevier Sci Ltd, 2013)
This study aims to investigate the change in chemical composition, surface characteristic and mechanical properties of heat treated four wood species (ash, iroko, Scots pine and spruce) during artificial weathering from ...
Changes in surface and mechanical properties of heat treated wood during natural weathering
(Elsevier Sci Ltd, 2014)
In this study, it was aimed to investigate the changes in moisture content, color, surface roughness, compression strength parallel to grain, modulus of rupture and modulus of elasticity of heat treated ash, iroko, Scots ...
Accelerated weathering resistance of high-density polyethylene composites reinforced with microcrystalline cellulose and fire retardants
(Elsevier Ltd, 2021)
In this study, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) composites reinforced with microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) and fire retardants, ammonium zeolite (AZ) and mono ammonium phosphate (MAP) were exposed to ultraviolet (UV) ...
