IMPREGNATED WOOD VENEERS: High‐Strength, Resistant Non‐Metallic Materials

Abstract

Chemical engineers have always been interested in non‐metallic materials because they are non‐corroding and extensive use has been made in the past of wood. Wood, however, suffers from many disadvantages, chief of which are its dimensional instability and its susceptibility to bacterial and insect attack. Although its mechanical strength along the grain is high, the strength of wood across the fibre direction is much weaker.
