Can the future be built in wood?
Wood is the most environmentally friendly raw material and by far the best material for construction.
All tests of fluid uptake and impregnation is carried out in cooperation with Danish Wood Tech’s partners. Test results have exceeded expectations and is extremely positive. A main conclusion is that the Fullwood process has proven to record significantly larger amounts of liquid in the timber structures than is possible with traditional waterproofing. Furthermore, the liquid was absorbed and distributed more uniformly in the wood structure, providing superior product qualities as a complete impregnation of the entire tree profile theoretically provides a greater resistance to damaging fungi and thus greater durability.
Danish Wood Tech’s high-frequency impregnation process was in a laboratory trial found to improve the retention of water soluble substances with about 40 % compared to traditional vacuum-pressure impregnation on dry Norway spruce (12 % moisture content).
