It is no longer only Danish impregnation companies and producers which are benefiting from the Danish Technological Institute’s expertise in testing and advising on products and techniques for wood protection. Demand for the Institute’s expertise is also coming from abroad.
Danish companies’ international suppliers of active ingredients for wood protection products and large international chemical manufacturers are themselves now customers at the Institute with its attractive, hi-tech and much sought-after testing laboratory plus related consultancy services.
This success is due in no small measure to experts at the Institute developing a realistic testing method to assess the leaching of impregnation products in compliance with the BPD directive. The big international demand for the Institute’s expertise is also due to the Danish Technological Institute having established an accredited research area in Malaysia. Here the tropical climate allows the Institute to carry out testing three to four times faster than other European competitors.
