A field evaluation of chromated fluoride as a remedial treatment for creosoted wooden distribution poles
B King, A Bruce
A commercial chromated fluoride formulation was applied by injection process to previously inoculated creosoted wooden distribution pole sections at a field site in Scotland and appraisal of the efficacy of the formulation against Lentinus lepideus was undertaken at two month and fifteen month intervals. Preliminary results suggest a rapid elimination of organisms from colonised areas. The usage of the chromated fluoride formulations as a remedial process for creosoted wooden poles is discussed.
