Performance of Creosote/Chlorothalonil Preservatives

IRG/WP 11-30580

H M Barnes, M G Sanders, G B Lindsey, T L Amburgey

The addition of chlorothalonil to P2 creosote was found to increase the durability of southern pine in a series of ground contact stake tests. At retentions lower than those specified in the AWPA Standards, performance was increased when the creosote was amended with chlorothalonil. This indicates that lower creosote retentions may be required for as good or better ground contact when the amended systems is used. This would have the impact of reducing the environmental footprint of commodities treated with creosote.
