Abstract

The research focuses on scratch tests of small scale PEG-impregnated wood samples. The original samples were taken in green condition in order to test the scratch performance of wood under processing conditions. The scratch test measures penetration depth and forces during scratching of the sample. The effect of different PEG-impregnations on the friction force and permanent penetration depth are quantified. Information on the recovered cell deformation and observations on disintegration of the wood and cell wall structure are also obtained.
