• Construction Materials Group launching at Ecobuild

    IOM3
    The official launch of the IOM3 Construction Materials Group will take place at the Ecobuild Exhibition at London ExCel on 2 March
  • Making a non-corrosive connection

    Materials World magazine
    A non-metallic, non-glue, connection system for timber structures could find use in corrosive environments, such as swimming pools and grit salt storage facilities, as well as the renovation or restoration of historic frames.
  • Conductive film deposition on wood veneer

    Materials World magazine
    A simple electroless process for preparing nickel-phosphorus film on wood veneers for electrical conductivity is being explored by Chinese researchers. The traditional process is said to be expensive.
  • IWSc: The Wood Technology Society Launch Conference

    The Wood Technology Society
    IWSc Executive Advisor Duncan King reports on the inaugural conference of IWSc: The Wood Technology Society (WTS) at IOM3.
  • Wooden packaging containers

    Misunderstood wood in food packaging

    Wood Focus magazine
    A novel microbiological testing method could promote wood’s use as a food packaging material, according to a group of French researchers.
  • Radiation as a cure for adhesives?

    Wood Focus magazine
    Radiation could be used to cure adhesives in the manufacture of wood composite panels in a way that could reduce energy consumption and offer an alternative to formaldehyde-emitting adhesives.
  • Streamlining conductive film deposition

    Wood Focus magazine
    A simple electroless process for preparing nickel-phosphorus (Ni- P) film on wood veneers for electrical conductivity is being explored by Chinese researchers.

    Forests are not weathering the storm

    Wood Focus magazine
    European forests are more susceptible to storm damage than ever before, according to research led by the British Forestry Commission. The Commission is exploring risk models that predict the probability, as well as the implications of thinning the forest and managing it in different ways.
  • Making a non-corrosive connection system

    Wood Focus magazine
    A non-metallic, non-glue, connection system for timber structures could find use in corrosive environments such as swimming pools and grit salt storage facilities, as well as the renovation or restoration of historic frames. It uses glass fibre reinforced polymer (GFRP) dowels and densified veneer wood (DVW) flitch plates.
  • Construction industry must undergo huge change to meet the low carbon challenge

    IOM3
    The construction industry faces the largest change management programme since Victorian times if it is to meet the low carbon agenda, according to an industry report published recently.
