New Super Wood

This looks like it could be promising for boat building/repair.

Re: New Super Wood

Sounds cool but I'm guessing it would be pretty hard to torture or bend it into any sort of pleasing shapes.

Cut from the article: " It can even be bent and molded at the beginning of the process."

Fake news. If those guys were really from Maryland, their names would be Tyrone and Darryl, not Liangbing and Teng.

Re: New Super Wood

Any one want to take a guess at what the densification process entails? Wonder if they put the wood in an epoxy bath then pump up the pressure like they do to pressure treated wood.

Re: New Super Wood

I'm very unimpressed by the fact that there was not one actual fact about the process in the article. Which leads me to call it BS and CLICKBAIT and someone looking to raise investment dollars, with no real product involved.

If they really have anything, they've managed to be so vague as to ensure no one knows it.

Sounds like they have reinvented resin infused plywood or found a way to remineralize the wood, perhaps resulting in a "super lignin" in it. But so vague...that it qualifies are a pure BS article for the time being.

I'll bet they are never heard from again. Not next month, not next year, they just join the list of high tech nonsense claims that never pan out.

There's no there there. Many words, no facts. That's not journalism, it is a marketing press release.

You must not visit many graduate schools in the US. It says they're from University of Maryland. It doesn't say they were born and raised in Ellicott City, although even that is possible.

Re: New Super Wood

Says they have a transparent wood, sounds rather Star Trechie. Reports of the invisible cloak were untrue, who knows.
