Wood surface protection with some titanium, zircnium and manganese compounds

Schmalzl, K; Evans, Philip


Thin radiata pine veneers were treated with a range of titanium, zirconium and manganese compounds and exposed to natural weathering. Veneer weight and tensile strength losses were used to assess the protective efficacy of the compounds. The oxidative manganese compounds potassium permanganate and manganic acetate restricted both weight and tensile strength loss of treated wood veneers during weathering. FTIR internal reflectance spectroscopy indicated that lignin was retained at the surface of...[Show more]
