PHYSICAL AND MECHANICAL PROPERTIES

These properties can vary significantly depending on the origin and growing conditions of the wood.

  • Density *: 0.79
  • Monnin hardness *: 8.3
  • Coef. Volume shrinkage: 0.44%
  • Stability in service: stable
  • Total radial shrinkage: 3.2%
  • Fiber saturation point: 21%
  • Total tangential shrinkage: 5.0%

(*: 12% humidity)

NATURAL DURABILITY AND IMPREGNABILITY OF WOOD

  • Mushrooms: cl 1 – very durable
  • Dry wood insects: durable; distinct sapwood (risk limited to sapwood)
  • Termites: class D – durable
  • Impregnability: 2 – moderately impregnable
  • Biological risk class: 4 – in contact with soil or fresh water

It naturally covers biological risk class 5 (use in a marine environment or in brackish water) only for use in a temperate and cold environment).

SAWING AND MACHINING

  • Blunting effect: quite significant
  • Teeth for sawing: stellate teeth
  • Machining tools: tungsten carbide

Sometimes irritating dust. Requires power. Sometimes difficulties due to the cross-thread.

ASSEMBLY

  • Nailing – Screwing: good hold
  • Gluing: correct

Pre-boring necessary because of the risk of cracks, especially in small dimensions.
Gluing requires care (dense wood).

USES

  • hydraulic works
  • parquet
  • sleepers
  • vehicle or container bottom

REACTION TO FIRE

  • French conventional classification: thickness> 14 mm: M.3 (moderately flammable) thickness <14 mm: M.4 (easily flammable)
  • classification according to euroclasses: D s2 d0 This default classification concerns solid woods meeting the requirements of standard NF EN 14081-1 appendix C (May 2006), used in vertical walls. Namely structural wood, classified, with a minimum average density of 0.35 and a minimum thickness of 22 mm.
