Resistance to Insects And Fungi
or the protection of wood against fungi and the influence of insects, such as the termites that they feed, while using anti-frosting and anti-moisture wood, they retrofit wood with various chemicals. The method of applying protective materials is divided into two types of surface contamination and surface saturation. Surface impregnation drops the wood in a protective material solution, spreads it with a brush or pumps it off. In this way, the protective material remains on the surface of the wood or penetrates one to two millimeters. Surface saturation is used to create lasting resistance. In this way, the wood is put into closed cylinders and the chemicals are injected into the container under vacuum and pressure. Suitable chemicals can protect the wood for a long time against termite attack, vermin and decay caused by fungal activity. In addition to chemical protection, various methods of physical protection are also used to prevent the penetration of insects into the building, most notably in Australia’s construction standards….
