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.

f5-insects-02-00462: Weekly termite mortality on overlaid sisal fiberboards.

Mentions: Figures 4 and 5 show the weekly termite mortality on bare and overlaid sisal fiberboards, respectively. Sisal fiberboard resin contents did not significantly affect termite mortality (Figure 4). However, the type of overlaying materials showed significant termite mortality, different at 95% confidence level. Formica-overlaid sisal fiberboards showed the highest mortality and proved significantly different from rubber-veneer-overlaid sisal fiberboards or bamboo matting overlaid sisal fiberboard (Figure 5).
