Razak Wahab, and Mohd Tamizi Mohd, and Othman Sulaiman, and W. S. Hashim, (2007) Durability assessment of chemically treated Gigantochloa scortechinii in unsterile soil laboratory burial tests. Journal of Bamboo and Rattan, 6 (1-2). pp. 33-39. ISSN 1569-1586
Culms of Gigantochloa scortechinii belonging to two age groups, 2 and 4 years, were chemically treated with ammoniacal-copper-quaternary (ACQ), borax-boric acid (BBA) and copper-chrome-arsenate (CCA) at 1, 2, 4 and 8 per cent solution strength by soaking, vacuum impregnation and high pressure sap-displacement processes. Unsterile soil laboratory burial tests were then conducted on 2- and 4-year-old bamboo blocks. At the end of the testing period (8 weeks), the 2-year-old culms showed higher weight loss than the 4-year-old culms to attack of decay fungi. Among the treatments, the vacuum pressure treated blocks showed lower weight loss against decay fungi. The 4 per cent preservative solution strength was found to be sufficient in controlling the decay fungi. © KFRI 2007.
