A laboratory soil-block decay evaluation of plywoods edge-treated with preservatives

IRG/WP 2174

R S Smith, A Byrne

Preservative-treated plywood used under conditions or severe decay hazard frequently has its original, or cut edges, protected by the application of a field-cut preservative. This study uses a laboratory test method to compare the efficacy of four commercial preservative treatments against two commonly occurring brown-rot fungi. The results are not meant to indicate the service life of such treated plywood.
