Pine Wood Modification by Heat Treatment in Air

  title={Pine Wood Modification by Heat Treatment in Air},
  author={Bruno M. Esteves and Idalina J. Domingos and Helena M. Pereira},
Maritime pine (Pinus pinaster) wood has low dimensional stability and durability. Heat treatment was made in an oven using hot air during 2 to 24 h and at 170-200 oC. A comparison was made against steam heat treatment. The equilibrium moisture content and the dimensional stability (ASE) in radial and tangential directions were evaluated at 35%, 65%, and 85% relative humidity. MOE, bending strength and wettability were also determined. At the same mass loss, improvements of equilibrium moisture… CONTINUE READING
