Metal carboxylates for wood pest control
1996 - IRG/WP 96-30109
Metal carboxylates have been used as wood preservatives for more than fifty years. Predominantly salts of naphtenic acids have been commercially applied so far. They have water repellent as well as fungicidal and insecticidal properties. In the last years, metal carboxylates of saturated fatty acids were introduced. Fatty acids with 7-10 carbon atoms already have fungicidal activity by themselves....

Carbon nanotubes and multifunctional silane additive as fillers in PF resin and their effect on the composite flammability
2023 - IRG/WP 23-30783
Adhesive bonds are the most readily modifiable and, at the same time, give the greatest scope for modification of components of lignocellulosic composites. A study of a manufactured lignocellulosic composite based on a phenol-formaldehyde resin and pine veneer with additives modifying the properties of the resin was made. The multifunctional commercial silicon oxide Protectosil 851 and multi-walle...
