Chemical analysis of wood preservatives, determination of formaldehyde and VOC

  • Checking of impregnation solutions
  • Qualitative and quantitative detection of wood preservatives in timber
  • Determination of penetration depth

Services

  • Supervision and certification of wood preservatives according to DIBt and RAL
  • Detection of wood preservatives in wood and wood composites (identification, penetration depth and contents of actives
  • Leaching-tests according to different emission scenarios (determination of leaching-rates, OECD Guidlines I and II, UBA-Eluattox-procedure, EN84, ENV 1250-2, prCEN/TS 15119-1 and 15119-2), Field test NT Build 509, Semi-field testing

  • Verification of wood preservation according to DIN 68800-3 (Quality of Impregnation, causes of damage)
  • Investigation into wood preservative treatment of construction wood (Penetration and uptake amounts e.g. EN 351-1, BS 8417, AS 1604.1)
  • Test of coated construction wood for exterior use (e.g. windows, balconies, coating thickness, bluestain protection, quality of coats)
  • Determination of wood preservative contaminations (e.g. DDT, PCP, Lindane) of wood constructions and dust (evaluation acc. to PCP-sanitation guideline
  • Determination of formaldehyde emissions from wood composites and in indoor air (Perforvator value EN 120, Gas analysis EN 717-2, 1m³-chamber test EN 717-1)
  • Determination of emission of VOC / SVOC from building materials (Determination and evaluation acc. to AgBB-scheme as well as DIN EN 13419, DIN EN 15052 and DIN EN ISO 16000)
  • Quality inspection and certification of wood composites in regard of harmful agents (e.g. lindane, formaldehyde acc.to DIBt-guideline 100 resp. IKEA-specification IOS-MAT-0003)
  • Testing and supervision of products containing used wood according to Altholz-Verordnung (heavy metals, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, copper, mercury, lead, chlorine, flourine, pentachlorophenole)
  • Expert opinions about efficacy of wood preservatives (e.g. for DIBt approval procedure)
