In this work the effectiveness of potassium sorbate and condensed tannins against mycelial growth and sporulation of some widespread moulds of High-Density Fibreboards (HDF) for crate production was tested. Laboratory inoculation tests were performed on 130 treated and untreated samples of HDF using the European Standard EN 15457. Potassium sorbate was more effective than condensed tannins and significantly reduced (P < 0.05) both mycelial growth and mitospore (conidia) production of mould fungi compared to controls

Abstract

In this work the effectiveness of potassium sorbate and condensed tannins against mycelial growth and sporulation of some widespread moulds of High-Density Fibreboards (HDF) for crate production was tested. Laboratory inoculation tests were performed on 130 treated and untreated samples of HDF using the European Standard EN 15457. Potassium sorbate was more effective than condensed tannins and significantly reduced (P < 0.05) both mycelial growth and mitospore (conidia) production of mould fungi compared to controls
