HOW TO CHECK WHETHER WOOD IS TREATED WITH DEKOSIT WPS?
The presence of DEKOSIT WPS in wood is detected by identifying one of its components, Didecyldimethylammonium chloride, by staining it with a bromophenol blue indicator. When exposed to the indicator, wood containing DEKOSIT WPS turns blue, while wood not containing DEKOSIT WPS turns yellow-green.
MIXING WITH OTHER PRODUCTS
Possible mixing with other products should be consulted with your Dekspol representative.
QUALITY CONTROL OF THE SOLUTION
It is advisable to check the concentration of DEKOSIT WPS solution daily and absolutely after the preparation of working solutions and when refilling the tanks with a new batch of the agent. The check should be carried out using a refractometer.

The product is used to protect freshly harvested sawn timber, especially coniferous sawn timber.
Prepare a 1.5% aqueous solution (15 kg of product in 985 l of water). The solution is stable over time.
METHOD OF APPLICATION
A few seconds’ cold tank of freshly harvested lumber stacked on spacers.
1 kg of product is sufficient for 3.3 m3 of 27 mm thick wood.
Once the wood has dried out, remove spacers and stack wood tightly. Store protected wood in an airy place.
Wash tools with water.
When spring comes, and higher temperatures together with it, stored wood starts to lose its natural colour – it turns blue. Although blue staining does not reduce the technological value of the wood, it loses its beautiful look and thus its market value decreases significantly.
Wood becomes blue rapidly in spring and summer (temperatures suitable for the development of blue stain) when its moisture content is between 25%-90%. Below approx. 23% moisture content, the wood is protected against the development of blue stain. Similarly, wood with a moisture content of more than 90 per cent is not subject to blue stain – this is why live wood does not become blue. However, sawn wood, having an optimum moisture content for the development of blue stain, will lose its beautiful colour if not properly protected. In order to preserve the natural colour of freshly sawn wood until it is properly impregnated or for shipment to distant destinations, it is advisable to use DEKOSIT WPS.
