Pretreatments of wood surfaces for improving weatherability of clear finishing
2001 - IRG/WP 01-40196
The clear film durability of wood is generally very short because of photo degradation of wood surfaces caused by UV through to the film. Pre-treatment of wood surfaces for protecting against photodegradation is very important for clear finishing system. In this study, some pre-treatments, ie; polyethylene glycol (PEG) and UVA grafting (2-hydroxy-4(2,3-epoxypropoxy) benzophenone (HEPBP)), were app...

Dominant genera of fungi isolated from the surfaces of Sugi (Cryptomeria japonica D. Don) heartwood lumbers exposed at six test sites from northern to southern regions of Japanese islands
1999 - IRG/WP 99-10304
The surfaces of wood materials are disintegrated not only by sunlight and rainwater but also by microbes when exposed above ground condition. This paper deals with the investigation of fungi isolated from the surfaces of Sugi heartwood lumbers (W100 by T10 by L300 mm) exposed at an angle of 45° without ground contact for 16 months at the six test sites from northern to southern regions of Japan. ...
