An original heat treatment performed under vacuum pressure was investigated. Maritime pine samples were treated at six different temperatures: 140, 160, 180, 200, 230 and 260°C. The physical and mechanical consequences, i.e. bending strength (MOR), modulus of elasticity (MOE), hygroscopic behaviour, equilibrium moisture contents and anti-swelling efficiency(More)
A formaldehyde-free adhesive consisting of a corn flour/NaOH adhesive mixture and a mimosa tannin/hexamine intermediate component was developed and evaluated for application to wood panels such as particleboards. The main ingredients of this adhesive include corn flour, NaOH, mimosa tannin and hexamine. This study investigated the physical properties(More)
