Effect of wood preservatives (waterborne and organicborne) on the performance of surface finishing properties is investigated. Sapwood of scots pine, (Pinus sylvestris L.), oriental beech (Fagus orientalis Lipsky), and chestnut (Castanea sativa Mill.) specimens ( × × 15 mm along the grain) were impregnated with aqueous solution of 2% CCA, 2% Tanalith E, Cited by: 6.

Wood pesticides (preservatives) extend the life of wood products by protecting them from damage by insects, fungi, marine borers, and weather. Preservatives are applied on the basis of how and where the products will be used, the expected conditions of exposure to wood- destroying agents, and the cost per year of service Size: 6MB.

Shell-Guard Concentrate is a combination of glycols and borate that must be mixed with an equal volume of water for use. The diluted solution is applied to bare wood and impregnates the wood fibers with the active borate ingredient eliminating and providing protection against wood decay fungi and wood consuming insects.

Biocide solubilisation under different pH conditions has been investigated (Esser et al.,Schiopu,Schiopu et al., ), showing similar leaching patterns for the inorganic biocides (Cu, Cr, As, B, Zn).In the case of wood samples treated with CCA and Cu-quat (copper oxide, didecyl-dimethylammonium chloride or DDAC) preservatives (Esser et al., ), it was shown.

A notable trend in the development of modern wood preservatives points in the direction of more environmentally friendly compounds that require simpler handling by consumers, making it easier for the average person to put such products to use.

This increased interest depends partly on the restricted use of toxic preservatives due to increased environmental concern, as well as the need.
