How Can WDL Help You?

The Wood Durability Laboratory (WDL) offers a complete array of wood durability testing. The Formosan subterranean termite (Coptotermes formosanus, Shirak) is an aggressive insect and has led to significant damage to wooden structures. Wood also is subjected to decay and mold attack. Thus, wood used in construction/outdoors MUST BE DURABLE! The WDL offers product development and testing for resistance to termites, fungi, and mold. The WDL scientists have a broad wood science background and a large wood durability database to help interpret new data and guide industrial research needs.
