“The influence of selected test parameters on the assessment of hydrophobic properties of wood-like thermal insulation materials”
The presentation will discuss the results of research obtained as part of the cooperation of several institutes belonging to the Łukasiewicz Research Network (Łukasiewicz – IMBiGS, Łukasiewicz – ICiMB, Łukasiewicz – IIMPiB, Łukasiewicz-PIT) on the assessment of the hydrophobic properties of thermal insulation materials (based on the example of wood-based products), taking into account test parameters for the final result.
