Project: Influence of substrate and product properties on the disfigurement-inhibiting action of non-fungicidal wood coatings.

project duration
01-OCT-01 – 30-SEP-03
Research of the mechanisms of blue stain and mould disfigurement of wood and non-fungicidal exterior paints and the influence of a set of abiotic parameters on disfigurement. Research on the wood/paint/fungus interaction and the penetration, adhesion and porosity of paints in relation with the susceptibility for microbial attacks. Development of alternative blue stain tests for the deteremination of the biological effectiveness of non-fungicidal wood coatings.
