Retreatment of recyclable sleepers using creosote

Retreatment of recyclable sleepers using creosote

Holztechnologie 28(5): 266-269

As part of a study on recycling of used sleepers in E. Germany, creosote content was analysed in Scots pine and beech crossing sleepers 10 yr after initial treatment. In pine, creosote content was more or less homogeneous throughout, with small reductions near the surface and in inner sapwood; in beech, content decreased from the surface to the interior (10 cm depth). Wt. losses of >3% (due to fungal attack) were found only in untreated sections of sleepers.
