  1. 1. Norway spruce heartwood : properties related to outdoor use

    Author : Karin Sandberg; Luleå tekniska universitet; []

    Abstract : Degradation of wood is a complex problem dependent on many parameters, but especially the presence of excessive amounts of water causes many problems.The objective of this work was to study the influence of various parameters on water absorption and desorption in Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst). READ MORE

    Abstract : Wood used outdoors is often degraded and discoloured by microorganisms as a natural part of its life cycle, particularly when exposed to high levels of moisture for prolonged times. In this case, the application of a coating (i.e. paint) is an option for increasing the service life of the wood. READ MORE
