Abstract [en]

Thermally modified wood is becoming an increasingly popular material for different applications in buildings. Laboratory tests indicated a positive effect of thermal modification on durability, dimensional stability and thermal conductivity of wood. Therefore, windows and facade elements made of thermally modified Norway spruce and non-modified Norway spruce were tested in the field and installed in different test objects which were exposed at five locations in Europe (Slovenia, Germany, Sweden, and Spain). Results from monitoring showed that elements and windows made of thermally modified spruce (TMS) had considerably lower wood moisture content compared to the ones made of non-modified spruce and that wax further positively influenced moisture performance. Colour changes of TMS were more intensive compared to non-modified spruce but were successfully retarded by adding pigments to the wax. Mould and stain growth was largely dependent on the location, amount of precipitation and relative humidity.
