The news was announced after the unveiling of the new 12 million heat-treatment
facility at the Hayange plant.
Figure 14 shows the relationship between the heat-treatment temperature and the total haze obtained by 10 wt% additions of L-LDPE with 898, 905, and 912 kg/[m.
Figure 15 shows the relationship between the heat-treatment temperature and the absolute value of refractive index difference.
The incident at the Shimane reactor occurred last December when a person in charge of the work mistakenly operated the heat-treatment equipment and failed to quickly notice the irregularity, they said.
The person in charge was quoted as saying, ''If (the mistake had been) found, I would have had to do the heat-treatment process again at the year-end when I was supposed to be off.
process plant was very impressive and very dramatic.
Defects such as internal or surface checks, collapse, splits, twist, and warp can occur in wood during the heat-treatment
process if the heating parameters are not well chosen.
It appears that the microfibrils coalesce significantly upon heat-treatment
at 600 [degrees] C.
Table 1 summarizes the conditions for the heat-treatment
Figure 4 shows the wood color could be influenced by the heat-treatment
MOE decreased with heat-treatment
temperature and time, but for the less-severe heat treatments the difference was very small.
Certification, concerning either heat-treatment
or fumigation for overseas shipment, is a paperless system that requires official stamps on the final product.
