Impregnation of Wood With a High Viscosity Epoxy Resin

Gregory R. Moore, Donald E. Kline, Paul R. Blankenhorn

Abstract


A method is described for impregnating small wood specimens with a high viscosity epoxy resin, without the use of a diluent to reduce viscosity. The method relies upon the strong temperature-dependence of viscosity, in conjunction with a curing agent that does not polymerize rapidly at high temperatures. Some preliminary results for a variety of Northeastern species are presented.
