Wood - A Guide to Specialty Treatments (1 credit hours)
Many specialty treatments can be applied to wood to either improve its performance or change its properties. Treatments addressed in this course are those that make permanent changes in the shape of a wood product, improvements in dimensional stability, or improvements in performance through combinations with non-wood resources.  
 
The first section of this course introduces the basic concepts of plasticizing wood. The second section of this course introduces the basic concepts of modified woods including resin treatments, compression treatments and heat treatments. The third section of this course introduces paper-based plastic laminates.
