Walnut Wood Wall Panels 5/4X6
Walnut wood is a highly prized hardwood known for its rich, dark brown color and distinctive grain patterns. It is widely used in various applications, including furniture, cabinetry, flooring, and decorative items. Here are the specifications for Walnut wood:
Species: Juglans spp. (Black Walnut – Juglans nigra, European Walnut – Juglans regia)
Other Names: American Walnut, European Walnut, English Walnut
Walnut Origin: Native to North America (Black Walnut) and Europe (European Walnut).
Appearance: Walnut wood exhibits a range of colors, from light to dark brown, often with purple or gray undertones. It features a straight to wavy grain pattern and a medium to coarse texture, giving it a luxurious and elegant look.
Tree Size: Walnut trees can grow to a height of 70-150 feet (21-46 meters) with a trunk diameter ranging from 2-5 feet (0.6-1.5 meters).
Average Dried Weight: The average dried weight of Walnut wood is around 38-43 lbs/ft3 (610-690 kg/m3), indicating a moderate density.
Specific Gravity (Basic, 12% MC): 0.51-0.60
Janka Hardness: Walnut wood has a Janka hardness rating of approximately 1,010-1,410 lbf (4,490-6,280 N), depending on the specific walnut species, demonstrating its durability and resistance to wear.
Modulus of Rupture: The modulus of rupture for Walnut wood is approximately 14,000-16,000 lbf/in2 (96.5-110.3 MPa), indicating its good strength and ability to withstand bending forces.
Elastic Modulus: The elastic modulus of Walnut wood is around 1,600,000-2,200,000 lbf/in2 (11.03-15.16 GPa), highlighting its stiffness and ability to resist deformation.
Crushing Strength: Walnut wood exhibits a crushing strength of approximately 7,410-9,400 lbf/in2 (51.1-64.8 MPa), indicating its ability to withstand compressive forces.
Shrinkage: Walnut wood has a relatively low shrinkage rate, with radial shrinkage averaging around 3-5% and tangential shrinkage around 7-9%.Drying: Walnut wood has good dimensional stability during the drying process, making it easier to work with compared to some other hardwoods. Proper drying techniques are essential to prevent warping or checking.
Workability: Walnut wood is generally easy to work with, as it machines, saws, and sands well. It also takes stains and finishes beautifully, enhancing its natural beauty. However, care should be taken when using certain glues, as Walnut can contain natural oils that may interfere with adhesion.
Preservation: Walnut wood is naturally resistant to decay and insect attack, contributing to its longevity. Applying appropriate finishes can enhance its durability and protect its natural beauty.
