Abstract [en]

Wood composites should be protected against microbial and insect attack when used outdoors, especially in construction applications with prolonged exposure to moisture. Preservative systems and treatment processes affect composite properties, especially adhesive/wood bonding and mechanical properties. Several common systems for preservation of composites include, 1) the use of pretreated wood, applicable particularly to some solid lumber laminates; 2) in-process preservative treatments favored for composites made from flakes, particles, and fibers where the preservative treatment is incorporated during the manufacturing process; 3) post-process preservative treatments which are generally favored for wood composites made from lumber and veneer; and 4) the use of recycled treated wood elements in manufacturing or the use of wood species with a high natural resistance against biodegradation. This chapter discusses these four preservative methods and presents a general overview of current research concerning preservation practices and techniques in North America including the effect of preservatives on composite properties, durability issues, and degradation modes.
