InnoRenew CoE researchers publish article about acceleration of natural weathering of wood subsurfaces

Dr Anna Sandak and Dr Jakub Sandak, InnoRenew CoE researchers, together with colleagues Marion Noël from the Institute Materials and Wood Technology at Bern University of Applied Sciences in Switzerland and Athanasios Dimitriou from the BioComposites Centre, Bangor University in the UK, recently published a scientific article, “A Method for Accelerated Natural Weathering of Wood Subsurface and Its Multilevel Characterization”, in Coatings.

The goal of the presented research was to develop a method for the acceleration of natural weathering and investigate the molecular, microstructure and macrostructure degradation of wood caused by the process.
