Biocel-WD a potent fungicide for Medium Density Fibre Board


Aparna Kalawate1,2* and K.Ch. Varadaraju1


The present work deals with the evaluation of efficacy of Biocel-WD against wood destroying fungus. Biocel-WD (Sodium pentachlorophenate) was evaluated at 0.25 and 0.5% concentration on the weight of liquid resin taken for the experiment. The chemical was incorporated in the glue/adhesive composition. The fibres were blended with the glue. Control panel for Medium density fibre board (MDF) were also made without Biocel-WD incorporation in the glue. The treated and control samples were exposed against the wood destroying fungus for three months to test the efficacy of Biocel-WD. From the results of the study it was found that Biocel-WD at 0.5% resisted the attack of wood destroying fungus. The treated and untreated samples were also subjected for physical and mechanical properties as per relevant standard. The panels conformed to the physical and mechanical properties.
