Resum
Boron-based formulations are used to improve the service life of timber. On the one hand, boron-treated wood increases resistance to biological attacks (e.g. by fungi and insects), and on the other hand, it renders wood more resistant to burning. In the present study, we analyse the fire behaviour of some water-borne formulations containing boron. A completely inorganic formulation (disodium octaborate tetrahydrate (DOT)) is compared with new-generation tannin-based wood preservatives in which t...
