Wood technology

This laboratory concerns itself with activities from the determination of chemical/physical qualities of wood as a raw material, to the determination of mechanical characteristics of the finished product and of wood by-products.

The activities also cover the furniture and furnishings sectors, wood laminate structures, panels, packaging (crates etc.) and biofuels with the study of wood recycling, the determination of the lifecycle of wood products (diagnostics/restoration), wood protection treatments, the glueing of wood and emission of dangerous substances.

In this way it is possible to supply national and international markets with solutions regarding construction products according to EC directives and for CE marking.
Main activities:
  • Chemical-biological analysis of wood:
- Chemical testing of wood, treatment control
- Durability of wood and its by-products.
- Biology anatomy identification of parasites/funghi.
- Ecotox environmental compatibility testing.
- On-site inspections of wood elements.
  • Physical-Mecchanical analysis of wood:
- Bending strength, compression, tensile strength, modulus of elasticity, quality of glueing, fatigue resistance, concentrated load etc.
- Defect analysis.
- Anatomy and morphology.
- Dimensional stability.
  • Testing of biofuel pellets
  • Testing of wooden packing (PALLETS ETC.)
  • Environmental simulation testing - conditioning and ageing
  • Testing on structural elements in laminated and solid wood
  • Testing on wood based panels
  • Testing on parquet
  • Testing on LVL laminated veneer lumber
  • Testing on office furniture for private use
  • Assessment of environmental impact of products used for wood proptection (paints, glue, adhesives etc.)
