More about the project
Preliminary findings have indicated a great potential for using tall oil and its refined derivatives instead of wax, for enhancing the water resistance and inter-fibre strength of cellulosic fibres. It is thus hypothesised that the effects can be transferred to commercial fibre-based products such as fibreboards. Following a two-step approach, a preliminary high-risky research is needed to reveal further possibilities to implement and validate promising results in the industrial production of high density fibreboards.
The project is part of the research in the Group of Forest Products research group.
