Abstract : Flame treating in combination with wire brushing was tested on pine, fir, oak, and teak. The ease of decontamination was a function of the depth of penetration. Of woods tested, pine was the most difficult to decontaminate. Flame treating and wire brushing removed approximately 0.050 in. per pass from pine and 0.025 per pass from oak, teak, and fir.
