The durability between untreated and chemically
Even though bamboos have a hard and highly refractive outer rind, the presence of rich source of potential nutrients and lack of resistive chemical characteristics makes it highly biodegradable. The internodes portion of a four years old bamboo was collected for the experiments from a homestead garden of Assam, India.
Resistance of bamboo strips and laminates after treatment with chemicals against termite Coptotermes curvignathus : The durability was measured according to the weight loss of samples after exposure to termite Coptotermes curvignathus for 4 weeks.
Rafidah Abstract The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of some preservative treatment on the durability properties of bamboo Gigantochloa scortechinii strips and bamboo laminated product.
Untreated wood outside
The trend was same as in the durability test against termite. According to Rowell , white rot fungi decompose the entire structural component i. Observation on bamboo strips, found that the inner part of the strips was severely attacked by termite. Therefore, the present study was carried out by treating bamboo with conventional chemicals such as boric acid, copper acetate, trimethyltetramine dithiocarbamate prior to impregnation with Methyl Metha Crylate MMA and Butyl methacrylate BMA polymer for arresting dimensional change and biodegradation. Sixty samples were prepared for the testing including 20 reference samples. This is followed by WBP-treated strips with To protect the lignocellulosic material from degradation and enhance its service life, various treatment methods have been employed during last few decades such as treating with mineral oil, coal tar ; heating in hydrocarbon oil, smoking, treating with various etherifying and esterifying agents, acetals, alkylene oxide and alkoxysilane-coupling agents and have been documented by several researchers Rowell, , ; Rowell and Gutzmer, ; Kumar et al. Plant disease management for organic crops. In addition, a cross-linkage between the lignin and the polymers occurs owing to the thermal degradation of the wood and are responsible for the decrease in the hygroscopicity, and an improvement of their dimensional stability [ 4 , 5 , 11 — 16 ]. Meister, R. Bambusa balcooa Roxb. Thus, the aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of thermal treatment on chemical composition, the changes in EMC and biological resistance to decay fungi of juvenile and mature wood from Hevea brasiliensis Rubber wood. Part 1 dendrocalamus strictus nees. Cellulase inhibition test: To carry out the cellulase inhibition test, five mL beaker was taken marked 1 to 5.
In bamboo laminates, protection against termites was more effective compared to bamboo strips. Increase in the intensity of vO-H in plane bending vibrations at cm-1, a band was observed, which is specific to the bamboo components, cellulose and hemicellulose.
ASTM standard D Standard method of laboratory of wood and other cellulosic materials for resistance to termite. Pandalai and R.
Its toxicological mechanism against fungus has not been ascertain but is supposed to be analogous Cui and Kamdem, The oil can easily penetrate through the wax scale and cuticles, can cause coagulation of the cytoplasma and inhibit the course of enzyme process Gruzdyev et al.
