Title: Treatment of wood with glucose-diammonium phosphate for fire and fungal decay protection

Author: Chen, George C.;

Date: 2002

Source: Proceedings of the 6th Pacific Rim Bio-Based Composites Symposium & Workshop on the Chemical Modification of Cellulosics, Portland, Oregon, USA, 2002, Volume 2. Corvallis, Or. : Wood Science and Engineering Dept., Oregon State University, c2002: pages 616-622.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: This study describes a method for dual protection of wood against fungal and fire degradation in one treatment. The method consists of impregnating wood with aqueous solution of glucose-diammonium phosphate at pH 9, followed by heating the treated wood at temperatures of 160 °C and 190 °C for various lengths of time to form water insoluble products in wood.

Keywords: Wood, glucose, diammonium phosphate, polymerization, fire and fungal decay protection, wood preservation, wood-decaying fungi, fireproofing agents, fire resistance, preservatives, resistance to decay, ammonium phosphate, impregnation, treated wood
