Collaborative field experiment: Analysis of copper and chromium in stakes of the four reference timbers
1982 - IRG/WP 3213
The stakes analysed belong to the Swedish set of the four reference timbers of the collaborative field experiment (Document No: IRG/WP/367). Before the field exposure 60 mm were cut off the end of each stake. This was done in order to be able to carry out chemical analyses as well as different types of testing. Some of the material has been used in softrot tests (Document No: IRG/WP/1151)....

Termite physical barriers: Is retrofitting with Granitgard an option?
1993 - IRG/WP 93-40011
Granite particles within the range of 2.4 to 1.7 mm diameter were recently adopted by the Standards Association of Australia as an alternative treatment to soil chemical barriers in protecting new buildings against subterranean termites. The granite substrate is sold under the commercial name, "Granitgard". However, there are many existing buildings that have no chemical or physical subterranean t...

IRG test of preservative-treated hardwoods with particular reference to soft rot. Report on condition of specimens installed in Victoria, Australia
1984 - IRG/WP 3318
Over a third of the treated stakes involved in this test have been mechanically damaged. As many of these stakes broke off at or near groundline they could not be reinstalled. So they have been removed from the study despite most exhibiting little or no decay. Because of the mechanical damage to a substantial number of the treated stakes, we propose to terminate the CSIRO part of this study after ...
