In the ballistic experiment that was made, it was determined that the board, which deviated from the range of lead, was not exposed to lead.
A wood species six times lighter than steel, as well as steel, can be used as a renewable building material in the future.
This reinforced timber, which researchers compare with carbon fiber, can be used in every area from construction to car and bulletproof vests.
Scientists subjecting the material to ballistic testing have found that the laminated version of this material has even stopped the lead.
Engineers from the University of Maryland have boiled ordinary wood piles in a water-based solution with sodium hydroxide and sodium sulfate to make this super-dense board.
By this process, the organic components in the wood are destroyed and the wood is transformed into a more flexible and robust shape.
The process that researchers apply is similar to that used to produce paper from trees.
The research team, which then squeezed the softened wood between the two metal plates, heated up to 100 degrees under a pressure fifty times the Earth’s atmosphere.
Thus the gaps between all the cells in the board are stuck together.
The applied pressure caused a chemical bond between the atoms forming the cellular structure of the board.
After the implementation of the transaction, the density of the board, which has narrowed down to its original thickness, has increased by three hundred percent.
Liangbing Hu, who conducted the research, says: “With this new process applied to the throne, we are getting 12 times stronger, 10 times harder than the natural throne.”
Previously, the team that produced a set of technologies made from materials related to nanocellulose manufactured super clean paper that could take up plastic, photonic paper that increased solar cell efficiency by thirty percent, and transparent wood that could be used in energy efficient buildings.
