Color including texture and gloss is one of the most important esthetical attributes of wood. For any porous materials in contact with water, the phenomenon of surface darkening arises from a change in the refractive index, as water enters air-filled pores. For the first time, this research investigated to what extent MC differences affect the surface color, below fiber saturation and after the pores are filled with water, with respect to extractive contents. Samples from 13 wood species were… CONTINUE READING
