Abstract:
Interest in the modification of wood has increased in recent years due to increasing
competition from other materials and the decrease in the quality of structural wood as a
consequence of the harvesting of fast grown woods. Wood with inadequate mechanical
properties can be modified by various combinations of compressive, thermal and
chemical treatments. Since most of the mechanical properties of wood are correlated to
its density, interest in modification in sense of wood densification is constantly
increasing. All forms of densification result in wood that has a lower volume of air space,
which increases overall density. The product is densified wood of high density and
strength. The novel densification processes adequately consider plasticization or stability
of the densified products. Therefore densified wood can be effectively utilized as the raw
material also in the production of composites. This chapter reviews the densified wood
products in terms of raw material for the composite products. The studies of relevant
properties and structural composites, recently produced from viscoelastic thermal
compressed wood (VTC wood), are presented. Finally, future directions regarding
application of densified wood in polymer composites are discussed.
