dc.description.abstract Thermally modified timber (TMT) is increasingly offered in Europe as an alternative to preservative treated timber. TMT durability, infield tests as well as its moisture sorption behaviour in facade application was determined so as to consider its suitability for outdoor use. Additionally, abrasion and crack-formation of TMT deckings were examined and the optical appearance of a TMT facade was evaluated after 5 years of service. After 7.5 years exposure in ground contact, the various TMT materials tested were classed as "slightly durable" to "not durable" whereas the classification in above ground exposure was "very durable" to "moderately, durable", which was in line with the reduced moisture sorption of TMT in weathered application. Moreover, the TMT-decking showed less abrasion and crack-formation compared to references, though the TMT facade revealed considerable discoloration by weathering. Hence, the suitability of TMT for above ground use is suggested, but a surface treatment is obligatory if discoloration is objectionable. eng
