Abstract
Counteracting moisture ingress in wood and wood based products is crucial for service life prolongation. The use of solvent- as well as water-based organosilicons as envelope treatments on such materials is investigated. Therefore, organosilicons were applied onto four different substrates like OSB and MDF as well as solid wood and plywood. Both treated as well as untreated materials were subjected to a series of floating and imbibition protocols in combination with artificial weathering in order to quantify their hydrophobing action. Envelope treatments of organosilicons show potential in improving water repellent characteristics of solid wood and plywood but have a reduced effectiveness after artificial weathering. The wood based panels OSB and MDF behave opposite. Further research is needed to validate hypotheses on this.
