I would advise you to read the study : Studien zur Festigung
biologisch geschwachten Nadelholzes: Eindringsvermogen,
Stabilitatserhohung, feuchtephysikalisches Verhalten, von Francoise
Cuany, Volker Schaible, Ulrich Schiessl. You find it in : Zeitschift
fur Kunsttechnologie und Konservierung, Jahrgang 3/1989. The study
is very complete and interesting.
