    • Abstract


      Impregnation of rubber wood has been carried out under different conditions by using styrene as grafting monomer and glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) as crosslinker. Properties such as dimensional stability, water absorption, hardness, tensile strength, flexural strength, etc of the impregnated wood have been checked and found to be improved by incorporation of GMA as the crosslinker with styrene. The polymer-impregnated wood has also been characterized by FTIR spectroscopy and DSC.
