  • Evaluation of the resistance of plastics and other non-timber-based products against attack by termites

Our Field Testing Services include:

    Field testing of timber framing and cladding materials against the termite Coptotermes acinaciformis.

    Field testing of timber framing and cladding materials against the termite Coptotermes acinaciformis.

  • Above-ground evaluation of the resistance of timber-based products, plastics and other building materials against attack by wood-destroying termites.
  • Methodology for testing materials in-ground against wood-destroying termites and fungi.

    Methodology for testing materials in-ground against wood-destroying termites and fungi.

  • In-ground evaluation of the resistance of timber-based products, plastics and other building materials against attack by wood-destroying termites and fungi.

We can also test materials above-ground for their resistance against wood-destroying fungi and typical weathering agents e.g. UV radiation, precipitation etc.
