Influence of reaction wood (compression wood) and normal wood of Norway spruce on the properties of medium density fibreboards (MDF)



Influence of reaction wood (compression wood) and normal wood of Norway spruce on the properties of medium density fibreboards (MDF)



Forstarchiv 76(6): 206-214



The main objective of the conducted research work was to study the performance of compression and normal wood as a raw material for medium density fibreboards (MDF). For this purpose stems from Norway spruce (Picea abies Karst.) with a high content of compression wood were selected, separated in compression wood and normal wood and finally chipped. Thermomechanical pulps (TMP) were prepared from both types of chips.
