Use of x-ray microdensitometry for assessing the resistance to the fungus C puteana of a hybrid larches population
2018 - IRG/WP 18-10923
The aim of this research was to utilize the X-ray microdensitometry to determine the natural durability and its variability of a hybrid larch population. The method was applied on slices obtained by increment cores collected on standing trees before cutting them down. The methodology was discussed also in order to propose as a new screening method especially suited for trees populations. X-ray mic...

Use of resin obtained from Italian guayule crops for wood preservation purposes: some preliminary results
2019 - IRG/WP 19-30736
The potential of guayule (Partenium argentatum Gray) as a source of anti-termite, anti-fungal and insect repellent products to be used in wood preservation, has been largely explored in the past. The fact that such products are obtained as byproducts in the process of natural rubber extraction from this plant, thus increasing the profit of the process, together with the ability of this crop to gr...

Results of the resistance of acetylated wood against marine borers at three Italian sites after five years of sea immersion
2022 - IRG/WP 22-10994
The aim of this research was the determination of resistance of acetylated wood against marine decay in use class 5 (EN 335) in temperate sea waters. The resistance of acetylated Pinus radiata (radiate pine) in solid and medium density fibreboard (MDF) panels is compared with that of the untreated Scots pine, radiata pine and other untreated wood of European species such as Fagus sylvatica (Europe...
