Improved equipment and technique for high pressure sap displacement impregnation of natural round wood
1972 - IRG/WP 309
Hitherto the main problem in the practical application of high pressure sap displacement impregnation (HPSD) has been in devising a satisfactory cap. Such a cap must be easily fitted to different size log ends to give a leak proof seal. The present contribution describes a new type of cap and sealing system designed to meet these requirements....

Premature failure of treated timber in wharfs in Papua New Guinea, attributed to defects in design
1991 - IRG/WP 4158
The performance of timber in wharfs in Papua New Guinea has been monitored for a number of years. Premature failure of wharf structures was found in many cases to be due to defects in design rather than ineffective preservative treatment. Above-water timbers were found to be prone to severe checking followed by decay. Protection for the end grain of pile tops and the limiting of radial checking in...

Protection of pile tops using combinations of internal treatments and water shedding caps
1993 - IRG/WP 93-30020
Preservative treatment produces an excellent barrier against fungal, insect, and marine borer attack; however, fabricators often disrupt this barrier during construction, creating avenues for entry of decay agents. This problem is particularly acute in marinas along the coastal United States. Standards recommend the application of a water-shedding cap at the time of installation to prevent pile to...
