Durability of wood and wood-based products - Preservative-treated solid wood - Determination of the penetration and retention of creosote in treated wood

This European Standard specifies the reference methods for determining the penetration and retention of creosote in timber freshly treated with creosote, principally in order to ascertain whether the treated timber conforms to specifications written in terms of EN 351-1. It also provides guidance on the acquisition of test samples and their handling between sampling and analysis.
NOTE   In the day-to-day practice at the plant, other methods (e.g. weighing the charge before and after treatment) can be used for determining the retention, provided that a significant relationship can be established with this method.

Dauerhaftigkeit von Holz und Holzprodukten - Mit Holzschutzmitteln behandeltes Vollholz - Bestimmung der Eindringtiefe und der Aufnahme von Kreosot (Teerimprägnieröl) in behandeltem Holz

Diese Europäische Norm legt ein Referenzverfahren zur Bestimmung der Eindringtiefe und der Aufnahme an
Kreosot (Teerimprägnieröl) in damit frisch behandeltem Holz fest, hauptsächlich, um festzustellen, ob das behandelte Holz den in EN 351-1 festgelegten Vorgaben entspricht. Sie gibt auch eine Anleitung für die Entnahme von Testproben sowie für deren Behandlung zwischen der Probenahme und der Analyse.
ANMERKUNG In der täglichen Praxis im Betrieb können weitere Verfahren (z. B. Wägen der Charge vor und nach der Behandlung) angewendet werden, vorausgesetzt, es kann eine eindeutige Beziehung zum genannten Verfahren her-
gestellt werden.

Durabilité du bois et des matériaux dérivés du bois - Bois massif traité avec un produit de préservation - Détermination de la pénétration et de la rétention de créosote dans le bois traité

La présente Norme européenne spécifie la méthode de référence utile à la détermination de la pénétration et de la rétention de la créosote dans le bois fraîchement traité avec cette dernière, principalement en vue de vérifier si le bois traité est conforme aux spécifications données dans l'EN 351-1. Elle fournit également des recommandations relatives à l'acquisition d'échantillons d'essai et à leur manipulation entre l'échantillonnage et l'analyse.
NOTE   Lors de la pratique quotidienne en usine, d'autres méthodes (par exemple la pesée avant et après le traitement) peuvent être utilisées pour déterminer la rétention, à condition qu'une relation significative puisse être établie avec la présente méthode.

Trajnost lesa in lesnih proizvodov - Zaščiten masivni les - Ugotavljanje penetracije in navzema kreozotnega olja v zaščitenem lesu

Ta evropski standard določa referenčne metode za ugotavljanje penetracije in navzema kreozotnega olja v lesu, ki je bil pravkar zaščiten s kreozotnim oljem, predvsem z namenom ugotoviti, ali zaščiten les ustreza specifikacijam zapisanim v smislu EN 351-1. Prav tako podaja navodila o pridobivanju preskusnih vzorcev in njihovega rokovanja med vzorčenjem in analizo. OPOMBA: V vsakodnevni praksi v tovarni se lahko uporabijo druge metode (npr. tehtanje obtežitve pred in po obdelavi) za ugotavljanje navzema, pod pogojem, da s to metodo lahko zagotovi bistven odnos.

NOTE 2 The retention requirement is expressed in kilograms of creosote per cubic metre of treated wood. 3.7 sampling unit unit (for example a pole, a sleeper, a board or a fence post) of preservative treated wood taken from a batch or charge of preservative treated wood [Adapted from EN 1001-2:2005, 4.75] NOTE For definition of "batch" see 3.2. For definition of "charge" see 3.3. 3.8 test sample portion of preservative treated wood taken from a sampling unit, in accordance with the recommendations of EN 351-2 3.9 transition wood wood in a zone between the true sapwood and the true heartwood [Adapted from EN 1001-2:2005, 1.45] NOTE This is distinguishable only in a very few wood species. In general its treatability is similar to that of heartwood. 4 Sampling of creosote-treated wood for the determination of penetration and retention 4.1 General requirements The acquisition of sampling units and test samples shall follow the procedures established in EN 351-1 and EN 351-2. Additionally, when sampling from a freshly treated batch, the wood shall be allowed to cool to ambient temperature before taking test samples. SIST EN 12490:2010

EN 12490:2010 (E) 6 4.2 Specific requirements for test samples for the determination of penetration The penetration of creosote in each of the test samples shall be determined immediately after sampling, according to Clause 5, in order to avoid creosote migration from the treated to the untreated area. 4.3 Specific requirements for test samples for the determination of retention A batch to be sampled for the determination of retention shall be sampled at a time less than 30 days after the treatment. NOTE 1 The retention requirements defined by the specifier are only applicable to treated wood as produced, not to the treated wood in service. The composite sample for a batch or charge shall comprise test samples taken in accordance with the chosen sampling plan. Sufficient test sample material shall be taken to ensure that at least 1 g of creosote is contained in the composite sample. NOTE 2 Wood treated with creosote by vacuum/high pressure processes can normally be expected to contain more than 10 % by mass of creosote. Therefore, it will require approximately 10 g to 12 g of creosoted wood to obtain at least 1 g of creosote in the

composite sample. NOTE 3 The larger the number of test samples included in the composite

sample, the more accurate the resultant retention determination should be. As soon as possible after the test samples have been obtained, and the penetration measured the wood not included in the specified analytical zone of the test samples shall be removed. The remaining wood constitutes the composite sample for the determination of retention. NOTE 4 If the penetration and retention are determined from the same test samples, the penetration should be determined before any wood is removed from the test samples. The composite sample shall be stored in a stoppered glass bottle
