Effects of Impregnation with Timbercare Aqua to Surface Roughness of Some Varnishes

A. Togay, Y. Kilic and M.H. Colakoglu

This study has been performed for determining the impacts of impregnation with Timbercare Aqua (TA) to surface roughness of some varnishes. For analysis, measurements were performed in the vertical direction of fibers by using Mitutoya Surftest-301 stylus scanner device. Roughness values were determined with ±0.01 μm sensitivity where scanning length (lt) was 12 mm and sampling length was (λc) 2.5 mm according to TS 971 and ISO 4288 standards. As a result, Surface roughness (Ra) mean value was measured as highest in oak (3.359 μm), in waterborne interior space varnish (2.465 μm) and TA and one layer application (3.320 μm). For the combination of wood, type of varnish and impregnation process, surface smoothness was lowest in combination of Scotch pine and polyurethane varnish and one layer impregnation (0.433 μm) and highest in combination oak and interior space varnish and one layer impregnation with TA (6.502 μm). Ra was measured highest on the surfaces impregnated with TA. So, it can be said that TA has an increasing effect on the surface roughness of woods.
