Abstract

This work view wood and its derived products valuable assets to the power and machines industry. It deals with conunonly available wood -'L··~··~. .. ,.,,.. in the Nigerian forests and market (2). These woods have been analysed in the fresh and after heat treatment. The work covers e water and oil absorption capacity of the various samples and the effect of same on the · Insulation resistance of the samples. It has been established that the sample has a reasonable 'Insulation resistance (greater than 100Mn at · V) in the treated slate and zero mega-ohm (at when the samples were immersed in water. hl' all the samples, the of water ab~orption was h1uch greater then the rate of oil absbrplion
