Environmentally and health-friendly wood-fiber panels with casein binder for architecture and furniture manufacture

Superwood – Project start /

Whether buildings or vehicles: Many load-bearing components can now be made from wood, in particular from bonded wood-based materials and hybrid materials. Their aging behavior has, however, not been sufficiently researched up to now. Conventional methods for testing durability in outdoor applications are either laborious or, due to their requirements, inappropriate for the application. Both can lead to considerable increases in costs for manufacturers and customers. In collaboration with Kassel University, we are developing a realistic rapid-aging procedure that can be utilized in particular by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
