R&D-Projects completed

26. April 2009 Microwave heating of wood

The potential to apply the principle of microwave heating which is commonly known from microwave ovens used as a kitchen appliances is very significant. Wood and wood composites can be heated quickly and uniformly in primary and...


19. April 2009 Wood-building diagnostics

All construction works are subject to aging processes. The current prokis04/2 research project aims at establishing methods for identifying safety defficiencies by analysing and monitoring a building’s current and by predicting...


19. April 2009 Timber roof structures

This project aims at developing scientifically based designs for low-sloping roofs in wooden structures. These proven designs are to provide optimal moisture protection. To this end, insight gained from fundamental research is...


20. May 2009 Innovative ways to protect wooden utility poles with chromium-free wood preservatives

This project aimed at investigating the serviceability and long-term effectiveness of chromium-free wood preservatives which are processed via impregnation. Correlations between microbial succession and the degradation of active...


26. April 2009 High-performance wood facades

[Translate to en:] Holzfassade

Aside from solid wood and three-layer solod wood panels (spruce, timber) an increasing number of new materials are being used in the designing of facades. In the course of this research project natural weathering trials were...


26. May 2009 Monitoring Microbial Life and Deposits in Paper Machine Circuits

Triggered by environmental concerns water circuits in paper machines were closed to an increasing extend in recent years and aggressive agents were replaced by more einvoronmentally friendly chemicals. This opened up new areas...


05. July 2010 New coating materials

For numerous applications, paper and cardboard have to be coated with special materials in order to prevent migration of substances into the paper. Currently the most effective protective coatings are of synthetic origin which...
