Increasing hardness of the wood
Acetylation causes no significant change in the strength of wood.
Hardness, however, is increased by up to 10%, unlike thermal modification where strength is typically reduced by 15-25%. This differs from most other treatments and modifications which typically adversely affect strength and brittleness.
