Test beds for servicelife assessment of bio-based materials

Internationally recognized Nordic test field for durability evaluation of wood-based materials and finishes primarily for outdoor use.

The testbed consists of:

  • 3 different test fields for outdoors test
  • 1 maritime station (Fiskebäckskil)
  • 2 laboratories (Stockholm and in Borås)
  • The testbed provides evaluation of eg:
  • Resistance to rotting fungi
  • Staining and mold growth
  • Marine pests
  • Dimensional stability
  • Surface properties
  • Artificial aging

The testbed is also subject to laboratory activities where different material properties can be studied in detail by accelerating the ageing and decomposition processes.
