The purpose of this study was to clarify the effects of composite processing and moisture sorption on laboratory fungal resistance of wood-plastic composites. A 2-week water soaking or cyclic boiling-drying procedure was used to infuse moisture in...

A property enhancer was added in the preparation of wood inorganic composites by a binary system (using trimethylphosphite or trimethylborate to a reaction system of TEOS/EtOH/acetic acid). The property enhancers tested were 2-heptadecafluoro-octy...

The use of wood-based composites in structural applications is often limited because of their sensitivity to excessive levels of moisture and decay. The environmental conditions that exist in certain use categories can be so adverse that the perfo...
