Abstract

In this study, it is aimed to have the ability of being identifying to be impregnated with pyrite substance that is the one of the resources of our country of spruce wood (Picea orientalis (L.) Link) in various concentration (1%, 3%, 5%) with boron compounds up to standart of ASTM 1413-76 and identifying the areas of usage in outdoor furniture industry. For that purpose, it is identified that occurrence changes in mechanical features (compression strentgh). According to the experiment results, control samples compression strengths value (32.43 N/mm(2)) is determined as 3% (the highest) pyrite + Boric acide (48.14 N/mm(2)) and 1% (the lowest) Pyrite (36.81 N/mm(2)). When the pyrite material was used both alone and in combination with boron compounds, it increased the compression strengths according to the control sample.
