IRG/WP 17-30717

E Oenem-Siakou, R Möller, R Craciun, J Wittenzellner, J Habicht

Encapsulated organic fungicides and termiticides have been examined for use as wood preservatives in vacuum pressure treatment of wood. Encapsulation of active ingredients was found to improve wood penetration behaviour and reduces leaching as well as biodegradation of the active ingredients compared to industrial standard formulations.

Keywords: encapsulation, fungicides, termiticides, triazoles, wood protection
