Re: Thermal Modification Of Wood & Carbon Fiber


Interesting solution based on local businesses.

Cross laminated timber is seeing a push for development and adoption in some areas. Overall, you still have to deal with any dimensional stability, moisture, mold and insect resistance requirements.

Thermalized wood gets you all those things, but you lose structural strength. Throw in some recycled carbon fiber, and you get the needed strength, with out the huge cost of virgin fiber.

Can it hit what's needed for cost/performance? Too early to tell.

I was thinking the same thing. There isn't really enough information to figure out how big this could be.

Re: Thermal Modification Of Wood & Carbon Fiber


So they are making OSB with carbon fiber added? At first I was thinking studs, but it says CLT panels.

Re: Thermal Modification Of Wood & Carbon Fiber


This is not likely to see widespread usage. It's frustrating that they're so focused on developing "new" CLT products in the US when we have a massive shortage of certified manufacturers for the regular product. With the adoption of the 2015 code book we can't even import from most of the European manufacturers who have been making this product on a huge scale for 20 years. This is making the cost much higher than need be. The CLT projects in the US currently cost much more than they do in Europe when it should be the other way around.

We have a few CLT projects under our belts and another one starting up right now so I'm not just talking out of my hat. I've spent 10 hours this week on the phone with manufacturers and engineers.
