EI - 13 Pest Test
- The test method used was the American Wood Protection Association (AWPA) Standard EI-13 test. Formosan Subterranean Termites were used, 400 per test sample. Shield All 2020 was coated onto pine wood at a 325 ft2/gallon coverage rate and exposed for 28 days with 5 samples tested and an average result reported. A control of untreated southern pine was used. Testing was done by Louisiana Forest Products Development Center, School of Renewable Natural Resources, LSU agricultural Center. The test was started on 2/27/2015.
- Test Results for the ShieldAll 2020 coated pine showed a weight loss of 0.66% while the control sample showed weight loss of 36.14%. The mortality rate for termites was 31.0% for those subjected to the sample coated with ShieldAll 2020. The mortality rate for termites subjected to the control sample was 15.2%. The final rating for the ShieldAll coated pine was 9.5 on a scale of 10.0. The rating for the control sample was 0.0.
- Test conclusions state that the 0.66% weight loss of the ShieldAll coated pine shows there was only trace surface nibbles, which resulted in a termite mortality rate of 31.0%. A rating of 9-10 indicate strong termite resistance. Below 5.6 is considered a weak-to-no resistance rating. 5 out of the five ShieldAll samples had a 9.5 rating indicating that ShieldAll 2020 will provide resistance to termites. The testing was done at 325 ft2/gallon. Lower coverage rates (heavier application) would likely perform better.
ASTM G21 Mold Test
The Petri dish is a non-nutritive nutrient agar that will not support mold growth. Therefore, the test specimen is not in an environment that allows continual spore generation for the duration of the test.
ASTM 3273/3274 Mold Test
Test specimen are hung above a layer of nutritive soil that has been inoculated in an environmental test chamber where they with viable mold spores. The panels are allowed to hang in the chamber (95% to 98% relative humidity) for four weeks with a weekly evaluation of the coatings.
This testing method also has limited severity. The coated panel hangs above the active mold growth and it only comes in contact with the mold spores through air circulation within the chamber. The panel is never directly inoculated with viable spores on its surface.
ASTM-D5590 Mold Test
The test specimen is placed in a Petri dish containing a nutritive agar which promotes mold growth for the duration of the test. The test sample is directly inoculated with viable mold spores. The dish is then placed in a controlled temperature/humidity environment that is optimum for mold growth (85% to 90% relative humidity) for a period of 28 days.
This test is the most severe of the three methodologies for several reasons: This test is run at optimal growth conditions with mold spores inoculated directly to the coating surface.
ASTM-5590 is the most effective predictor of a coating’s ability to resist mold and mildew growth under severe conditions and should be required as a standard when evaluating which coating to use.
