Abstract
Heat treatment is one of the environment-friendly ways to treat timber that will lead to the improvement of timber natural quality and equip the timber with new properties by modifying the timber. It is an eco-friendly and alternative treatment method that will modify the properties of timber by using high temperature instead of using chemical preservatives. This paper presents the overview of heat treatment effects on physical, chemical and mechanical properties in the case of heat treated timbers research. It is learned that at temperature over 150 °C, the physical, mechanical and chemical properties of the wood gradually get altered permanently. The research would be essential for the purpose of finding a better alternative to treat the timber to replace the chemical treatment, Copper Chromium Arsenic (CCA) which is not environment friendly. Research had shown that heat treatment on softwood as internal purpose especially in furniture application, hence there is a need to expand this treatment as an alternative method on hardwood timbers to be used in construction industry.

Black pine (Pinus nigra) has high industrial usage potential and large plantation in Turkey. Larch wood was treated with heat to determine its mechanical properties, such as bending strength and pressure and order to determine its adhesion strength. Laminating adhesives are used for the construction of polyvinyl acetate and polyurethane. Heat treatment was applied to the samples at 100-150°C for 4 h in drying oven. In the result of the experiments, heat treated samples give better results due to...

Heat treatment is often applied to wood species to improve their dimensional stability. This study examined the effects of heat treatment on certain mechanical properties of laminated beech wood ( Fagus orientalis L), which has industrially high usage potential and large plantations in Turkey. Wood specimens obtained from Simav- Kutahya, Turkey. For this purpose; first beech wood samples used in this study were kept in temperatures of 100 ˚C and 150 ˚C for 4 hours, and after that they were lamin...

Heat treatment of wood is an effective method to improve the dimensional stability and durability against biodegradation. In this study, the effects of heat treatment on physical properties and surface roughness of European Hophornbeam (Ostrya carpinifolia Scop.) wood were examined. Samples obtained from Alapli-Zonguldak Forest Enterprises, Turkey, were subjected to heat treatment at varying temperatures and for varying durations. The physical properties of heat-treated and control samples were ...

This article reports the impacts of three different drying treatments on selected physical and mechanical properties of European (Populus tremula L.) and hybrid (P. tremula × tremuloides) aspen wood. The material originates from 5 European aspen stands and 7 hybrid aspen stands in southern and central Finland. After processing the logs at a saw mill, sawn timber samples were dried using 1) conventional warm air drying, 2) press drying, or 3) heat treatment into Thermo-S grade by the Finnish Ther...

Heat treatment is often used to improve the dimensional stability of wood. In this study, the effects of heat treatment on the physical properties and surface roughness of Turkish Hazel (Corylus colurna L.) wood were examined. Samples obtained from Kastamonu Forest Enterprises, Turkey, were subjected to heat treatment at varying temperatures and for different durations. The physical properties of heat-treated and control samples were tested, and oven-dry density, air-dry density, and swelling pr...

The aim of this work was to study the wettability and chemical composition of heat-treated wood. Heat treatment was performed at 240°C under inert atmosphere on four European wood species (pine, spruce, beech and poplar). Contact angle measurements before and after treatment indicated a significant increase in wood hydrophobicity. Advancing contact angles of a water drop were in all cases systematically higher for heat-treated than for untreated wood. Chemical modifications of wood after heat tr...

and 46% for P. placenta. About 56% and 54% weight loss were obtained for southern pine control exposed to G. trabeum and P. placenta, respectively. The weight loss of the water and acetone extracted heat-treated sample exposed to P. placenta was 49.7% and 53.9%, respectively. Only about 11% and 14.8% weight loss was obtained for water and acetone extracted samples exposed to G. trabeum. The moisture content of the tested samples was about 70 ± 10% for the un-heated controls and 50 ± 10% for heat...
