Equilibrium moisture content, dimensional variability, and mildew resistance of dried rubberwood



Equilibrium moisture content, dimensional variability, and mildew resistance of dried rubberwood



Journal of Nanjing Forestry University (1): 46-52



Air- and kiln-dried Hevea brasiliensis samples were kept at 70, 80, 90 or 100% RH at 15, 20, 25 or 30 degrees C. Equilibrium m.c. of kiln-dried wood was 1.91-3.81% lower than that of air-dried wood. Coefficients of swelling with moisture absorption in tangential and radial directions were 0.18 and 0.11%, respectively, 0.06 and 0.05% lower than those of air-dried wood.
