Laboratory tests on natural resistance to Cryptotermes brevis (Walker) attack of native hardwoods for crossarms production
1985 - IRG/WP 1266
Eletropaulo (Eletricidade de Sao Paulo S/A) and IPT (Instituto de Pesquisas Tecnologicas do Estado de Sao Paulo S/A) are carrying on a study to evaluate wood species for crossarms in replacement of Aspidosperma polyneuron - Apocynaceae (Peroba-rosa) traditionally used for this purpose. Nineteen Amazon wood species were elected, with physical and mechanical properties equal or better than those pre...

ImpregnaciĆ³n de durmientes de quebracho blanco (Aspidosperma quebracho blanco) con preservadores cromocuproarsenicales (CCA)
2008 - IRG/WP 08-40428
CCA impregnation of railroad ties is a recent process in Argentina which has not been optimized in a commercial scale. This study analyzed the influence of treatment pressure on final retentions to optimize the impregnation process. Results showed that a 3.2% m/v solution resulted in 10.8 kg/m3 CCA retention. At 1187 kPa (12 kgf/cm2) quebracho blanco wood had an average absorption of 338 l/m3. Als...
