Termite Resistant Properties of Sisal Fiberboards.

Syamani FA, Subiyanto B, Massijaya MY - Insects (2011)

Bottom Line: Evaluation was in the laboratory according to the JWPA Standard-TW-S.1-1992.To improve mechanical properties of fiberboards made from sisal fibers, the boards were overlaid by rubber veneer, betung bamboo matting or formica.Result showed that the formica-overlaid sisal fiberboards performed better than other overlaid fiberboards against C. gestroi.

ABSTRACT
A study was carried out to test sisal (Agave sisalana Perrine) fiberboards properties as building materials against Asian subterranean termite, Coptotermes gestroi (Wasmann). Evaluation was in the laboratory according to the JWPA Standard-TW-S.1-1992. To improve mechanical properties of fiberboards made from sisal fibers, the boards were overlaid by rubber veneer, betung bamboo matting or formica. Result showed that the formica-overlaid sisal fiberboards performed better than other overlaid fiberboards against C. gestroi.

f2-insects-02-00462: Mean mass loss in mg of bare and overlaid sisal fiberboards. OLSB: overlaid sisal fiberboard.

Mentions: Among overlaid sisal fiberboards, the mass loss of bamboo-matting overlaid-sisal fiberboard was (243.33 mg in average) higher than rubber-veneer-overlaid sisal fiberboards or formica-overlaid sisal fiberboards (Figure 2). Bamboo is susceptible to microorganisms and insects and whole bamboo in the dry state can be attacked by Dinoderus sp. borers and drywood termites [10], due to high content of starch and cellulose. The mass loss of sisal fiberboards overlaid by rubber veneer was high, recording 200 mg on average, as a result of rubber susceptibility to biodegrading agents and low durability as categorized in class V [11].
