Laboratory evaluations of wood preservatives. IX. Effectiveness of low and high temperature creosotes against wood-rotting fungi and subterranean termites



Laboratory evaluations of wood preservatives. IX. Effectiveness of low and high temperature creosotes against wood-rotting fungi and subterranean termites



Holzforschung 28(1): 24-29



High-temperature coke-oven creosotes (a) now being used in Australia were compared with low-temperature vertical-retort creosotes (b) previously in use there, and with coke-oven creosotes (c) from the USA. Initial screening of nine fungus species on sapwood blocks of Eucalyptus obliqua that had been impregnated with creosote and exposed to laboratory weathering by British Standard method (838:61), showed that Fomes lividus was the most tolerant of (a).
