Should antiseptic wood be dried? What are the benefits of doing this? The introduction of antiseptic wood is as follows.
Prevent the degradation and decay of wood. If the wet wood is stacked in the open air for a long time, if appropriate measures are not taken, it will often rot or be damaged by insects. When the wood moisture content is reduced to less than 20%, the damage and destruction of fungi and pests can be greatly reduced. So in the production unit, dry the wood to the moisture content of 8-15%. This not only ensures the inherent properties and strength of wood, but also improves the corrosion resistance of wood. Reduce the weight of wood. The water content of newly cut timber even exceeds its own weight. After short-term storage and natural drying, its water content is still very high. After the wood is dried in the room, its weight can be reduced by about 30-50%, which is conducive to improving the carrying capacity of vehicles.
Why should antiseptic wood be dried
In short, the dried wood can ensure the quality of wood products, the service performance of antiseptic wood, extend the service life, and thus save wood. The practice for many years has proved that wood drying is an indispensable process in production and has become a specialized subject in science. Anticorrosive wood needs to be dried. If it is not dried, too much water in it will affect our finished products, such as the common edge warping and skew, which are very ugly. Therefore, drying is an indispensable step for the beauty and practicality of the objects we build.
