Protection of OSB against termites by incorporation of different actives via glue line treatment

IRG/WP 08-30453

S Donath, P Spetmann, T Jaetsch, T Zahlmann

Different organic actives and zinc borate were incorporated into OSB during the manufacturing process to enhance the resistance against termites. Tests according to EN 117 revealed excellent performance of thiacloprid. Other organic actives such as permethrin might be effective when used in higher amounts. Zinc borate failed the test by far.
