High Temperature drying has by numerous studies been shown to affect strength properties as well as moisture properties of the wood treated. The present study aims at determining the effects of different heat treatments of small clearwood samples on material properties. Samples were treated in dry and moist air, saturated steam and water. Temperatures varied from 20 °C to 150 °C. Treatment periods varied from 6 h to 96 h. The results of the study indicate that the effects of treatment are dependent not only on the method of treatment and time, but also on the pre treatment of the samples such as ingoing moisture content.
