Thermally modified timber: durability under study

Each wood species is characterized by a certain degree of resistance to attack by biological degradation agents, mainly fungi and insects. This feature is the natural durability of the species.

The durability of wood can be improved by some processes, in order to make a wood species more resistant to biological degradation.

A laboratory method allows to test wood-based materials subjected to protective treatments and to assign them a durability class in order to allow comparison with the starting material and with other wood species of known durability.

This is the case with thermally modified timber (TMT).
