Gaseous ammonia treatment in combination with densification of wood has been known for several decades, but these days there is no industrial production of materials modified in this way; also, little has been published in this area of wood science. In this study, selected physical and mechanical properties, i.e. density profile, bending strength, hardness(More)
This study was carried out in order to determine the efficacy of microwave (MW) plasticization for wood densification purposes. The plasticization process was carried out using a continuous feed laboratory MW at a frequency of 2.45 GHz. European beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) specimens measuring 50 mm × 40 mm × 8 mm were MW treated (plasticized) with an output(More)
