Abstract

This study was carried out to determine compression strength parallel to grain of wood impregnated with some boron compounds. Sodium perborate (SP) boric acid, (BA), and borax (BX) were Used as boron compounds. Wood specimens were prepared from Calabrian pine (Pinus brutia Ten.) and beech (Fagus orientalis L.) wood. Before compression test parallel to grain, wood specimens were impregnated with aqueous solutions (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 %) of boron compounds according to ASTM D 1413(1976).
