Birch nark as an industrial raw material : A material based research (English)
Abstract [sv]

Denna rapport beskriver mitt examensarbete som har varit ett forskningsprojekt inom materialet näver. Jag har genom min forskning undersökt om det går att introducera näver som en modern industriprodukt och kommit fram till att det är fullt möjligt.

Jag har gjort en lång rad tester med nävern för att undersöka dess mångsidighet. Jag har försökt att limma ihop näver med och utan lim. Jag har kokat den, sytt i den, bränt den och destillerat den. Dessutom har jag tagit nävern till Linköping för att göra mekaniska hållbarhetstester och ta reda på vad den tål och inte tål.

Slutligen har jag gjort två olika designer där nävern har en central roll i produkternas funktion och formspråk

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to describe my observations made during a research on birch bark. I have, through my research investigated the possibilities of introducing birch bark as a modern industrial product and have come to the conclusion that it indeed is possible.

I have done an array of tests with the purpose of investigate its versatility. I have tried to glue it together, both with and without glue. I have boiled it, sown in it, burned it and distilled it. Furthermore, I took it to Linköping to do mechanical durability tests on it to see how much it could and could not endure.

I have finally made two different designs where birch bark has a central role in the products function and appearance.
