In order to provide a database which documents the influence of plasma treatment on water uptake of wood veneers, veneers of 27 wood species underwent immersion tests in untreated and plasma-treated states. Plasma treatment was executed using an air driven dielectric barrier discharge at atmospheric pressure. The results showed that plasma treatment led to significantly improved water uptake for most of the wood species, but some wood species remained unaffected after plasma treatment.
