Description

  • [0001]
    This application claims priority to U.S. provisional application No. 60/618,729, filed on Oct. 14, 2004, the disclosure of which is hereby incorporated by reference.
  • FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • [0002]
    The present invention pertains to wood preservation, and more specifically to the use of micronized metals, metal compounds, and organic biocides as wood preservatives.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0003]
    Wood preserving compositions are used to protect wood and other cellulose-based materials, such as paper, particleboard, textiles, rope, etc., from attack by wood-destroying organisms, such as, for example, fungi, bacteria and insects. Conventional wood preserving compositions often contain inorganic compounds, organic biocides, or both in an organic carrier. Examples of inorganic compounds used heretofore are compounds of copper, zinc, tin, boron, fluoride, etc. Organic biocides used heretofore include insecticides, fungicides, moldicides, algaecides, bactericides, etc. that have been dissolved in an oil-borne carrier. Examples of such compounds are azoles, carbamates, isothiazolinones, thiocyanates, sulfenamides, quaternary phosphonium compounds, quaternary ammonium compounds, nitrites, pyridines, etc. The preparation of such compounds in organic carriers is desirable because many organic carriers can impart water repellency and dimensional stability to cellulosic substrates such as wood. However, many inorganic compounds and organic biocides have limited solubility in common and desirable organic carriers, and heretofore, special measures have been taken to overcome the solubility hurdle. For example, inorganic compo have been added to organic carriers as organo-metallic compounds or have been complexed with an organic moiety to enhance its solubility characteristics in a desired organic carrier. Another technique which has been used is the formation of a water-in-oil emulsion in which compounds are dissolved in water as organo-metallic compounds, and the aqueous product is mixed with emulsifying compounds to produce the emulsion. However, these methods do not work for many desirable combinations of inorganic/organic component and organic solvent. Such solutions have remained difficult to prepare.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0004]
    The present invention provides compositions and methods for preservation of wood. The composition comprises one or more micronized inorganic compounds, organic biocides, or both, and an organic carrier in which the micronized compounds are of low solubility. As used herein, the term inorganic compounds includes metal compounds, as well as inorganic complexes comprising one or more metal ions which are complexed with organic moieties.
  • [0005]
    A method is provided for the preparation of the composition. The method comprises the steps of providing an organic carrier and an inorganic compound, organic biocide, or both, which are insoluble in the organic carrier, and grinding them into micronized particles in the presence of dispersants and optionally, the carrier, such that a stable dispersion of micronized particles is formed. These compounds are ground by standard techniques known in the art. The inorganic compound/organic biocide particles have a size in the range of 0.001 microns to 25.0 microns.
  • [0006]
    The compositions of the present invention can be impregnated into cellulosic materials such as wood by standard methods, such as vacuum/pressure methods.
  • [0007]
    When such a composition is used for preservation of wood, there is often only minimal leaching if any, of the micronized component(s) upon exposure of the wood to the elements during use, particularly if the micronized component(s) have limited or no solubility in water.

    FIG. 2 depicts the border pit structure for coniferous woods.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • [0010]
    Disclosed herein is a micronized preservative composition, a method for its preparation, and method for its use thereof in the treatment of cellulosic material, especially wood. The leaching of metal element from the treated wood can be less than that observed with non-micronized compositions currently used in the art.
  • [0011]
    Metals or metal compounds which can be used in the micronized preservative compositions of the present invention in their elemental form or as compounds include transition elements (including the lanthanide and actinide series elements) such as strontium, barium, arsenic, antimony, bismuth, lead, gallium, indium, thallium, tin, zinc, cadmium, silver, nickel, etc. Such compounds should exhibit a relatively low solubility in the organic liquid which is to be used as a carrier.
  • [0012]
    A preferred metal is copper. Accordingly, in one embodiment, copper or copper compounds are used. The copper or copper compounds which can be used include cuprous oxide (a source of copper (I) ions), cupric oxide (a source of copper (II) ions), copper hydroxide, copper carbonate, basic copper carbonate, copper oxychloride, copper 8-hydroxyquinolate, copper dimethyldithiocarbamate, copper omadine, copper borate, and copper residues (e.g., copper metal byproducts).
  • [0013]
    Organic biocides such as fungicides, insecticides, moldicides, bactericides, algaecides etc. from chemical classes including azoles, carbamates, isothiazolinones, thiocyanates, sulfenamides, quaternary phosphonium compounds, quaternary ammonium compounds, nitriles, pyridines, etc. and mixtures thereof can be used with the present invention and are well known to those skilled in the art. The organic biocides used in the present invention may have varying degrees of solubility, depending upon the organic biocide and carrier which is used. The organic biocide may be either micronized or soluble in the carrier used, with the provision that if the composition does not contain a micronized metal/metal compound component, the organic biocide is present in the carrier as micronized particles. Some non-limiting examples of organic biocides are listed below.

  • [0014]
    The ambit of the present invention includes the use of the above compounds and biocides in micronized form. The term “micronized” as used herein means a particle size in the range of 0.001 to 25 microns. The term “particle size” refers to the largest axis of the particle, and in the case of a generally spherical particle, the largest axis is the diameter. The micronized particles can be obtained by wetting/dispersing and grinding the inorganic compounds, with or without organic carriers, using a grinding mill. However, it should be understood that “micronized” does not refer only to particles which have been produced by the finely dividing, such as by mechanical grinding, of materials which are in bulk or other form, but to particles in the foregoing size range, whether they are ground from larger stock, precipitated out of solution, formed using nanotechnological methods, formed in situ, etc.
  • [0015]
    It is preferred that the particles be formed in the presence of dispersants, such as stabilizers, wetting agents, surfactants, etc., such that a stable particle dispersion is formed. Standard dispersants can be used, such as acrylic copolymers, polymers with pigment affinic groups or other modifications which give them affinity for the micronized component(s) (“modified”). Other dispersants are modified polyacrylate, acrylic polymer emulsions, modified lignin, organically modified polysiloxane, modified polyurethane, polycarboxylate ether, modified fatty acids and fatty acid esters, modified polyether, modified polyamides, and the like.
  • [0016]
    A “dispersion” of micronized particles should be interpreted to encompass situations in which particles are present with sizes outside the micronized range. However, it is preferred that greater than 80 wt % of the particles have diameters in the micronized range, and even more preferred that greater than 60 wt % of the micronized particles have a size of between 0.05 to 1.0 microns.
  • [0017]
    All embodiments contain at least one metal/metal compound or organic biocide which is present as a micronized dispersion. When the composition comprises both types of components, either can be present in micronized form. In one embodiment, both the inorganic compound component and the organic biocide component are present as micronized particles.
  • [0018]
    For the purposes herein, an inorganic compound or an organic biocide component will generally be considered to have the ability to be present in a wood preservative solution as micronized particles (i.e., little or no dissolution in the carrier), if the compound has a solubility in the organic carrier of less than or equal to 0.5 g per 100 grams of carrier at 25° C. More preferred is a solubility of less than or equal to 0.1 g per 100 grams of carrier at 25° C.
  • [0019]
    The compositions of the present invention can be prepared and stored as a concentrate, if desired, which can be diluted with an appropriate reconstituent to give a solution having a desired concentration of micronized component for applying to wood. Included within the ambit of the present invention are situations in which the organic carrier used to reconstitute a concentrate solution is different from the organic carrier which is present in the concentrate. Such a situation may arise, for example, if further dilution with the same organic carrier which is in the concentrate would cause appreciable dissolution of the micronized inorganic component. A second organic carrier may have properties which are more suited to the application for which the composition is to be used than the carrier which makes up the concentrate.
  • [0020]
    Compositions which contain extremely high weight percent of micronized particles may be of high viscosity, and such solutions may require measures such as high pressures to ensure penetration. However, viscosity of the composition is dependent upon the chosen carrier as well as the identity of the micronized component, and it is within the abilities of one skilled in the art to dilute or otherwise reduce the concentration of micronized component if excessive viscosity prevents or inhibits penetration. As a rule, solutions having a micronized particle wt % in excess of 50 wt % may require the use of high pressures to achieve significant penetration. However, a solution which is a concentrate which is intended for dilution before use may have a wt % of micronized particles which is even higher than 50 wt %.
  • [0021]
    In general, the wood preservative solution can have a micronized particle wt % as high as 85 wt % or as low as 0.00001 wt %, although for some applications, concentrations outside this range may be appropriate. The foregoing range includes both ready-to-apply solutions and concentrates.
  • [0022]
    In the compositions of the present invention it can be desirable to use components in addition to the inorganic compound, organic biocide and organic carrier components in order to enhance the performance of the wood preservative solution. Such components may be used as dispersants, defoamers, weathering agents, colorants, etc.
  • [0023]
    The preservative solutions of the present invention can be prepared in a variety of ways. The component or components which are to be present as micronized particles in the preservative solution (the “solid component”) can be added to the carrier as a dispersion of micronized particles in a liquid phase, or they can be added to the carrier as large particulate or other solid form before grinding the particles to micronized size, preferably in the presence of dispersants. Solid components can be added as large particulate for later grinding, or as micronized particulate. If desired, micronized solids can be added directly to a carrier which contains a dispersant. The micronized particles can be obtained by grinding a metal/metal compounds or organic biocide component in the presence of a wetting agent and/or a dispersant using a commercially available grinding mill in the absence or presence of a solution. It is convenient to grind the particles in the presence of a carrier and a dispersant such that the suspension is formed in the carrier without the additional step of adding the dispersion to the carrier. Alternatively, micronized compounds may also be purchased from commercial sources and, if needed, ground further, optionally in the absence of the carrier.
  • [0024]
    The micronized compounds and biocides in an organic carrier can form a finely dispersed suspension with or without addition of a thickener. The resulting dispersion can optionally be mixed with a variety of biocides which are soluble in the carrier.
  • [0025]
    For preparing the compositions of the present invention, the soluble components can be added to the organic carrier prior to, during or after the micronization of the components. In one embodiment, micronized particles can be first made (by any suitable means) and then dispersed in the carrier. Other compounds and biocides, such as organic or inorganic biocides, soluble or insoluble, can be added to the dispersion, if desired.
  • [0026]
    Heretofore, technology has typically required the addition of an organic co-solvent or chelating agent to solubilize or complex the copper or other inorganic or organic biocides into an organic carrier. Disadvantages of the typical approach used in the art include the limited number of inorganic and/or organic biocides that are suitable for use in the standard organic solvent systems currently accepted by the wood preserving industry. Some biocides would require solvents that have dangerously low flash points or have significant health or environmental hazards associated with their use. Furthermore, using current technologies, metal or biocide components may be prone to leaching. The use of the present invention allows the addition of a variety of inorganic and organic biocides to carrier systems which comply with the Standard P9 (Standards for Solvents and Formulations for Organic Preservative Systems) of the American Wood Preservers Association.
  • [0027]
    This invention also allows the addition of performance enhancing non-biocidal products such as water repellants, colorants, emulsifying agents, dispersants, stabilizers, UV inhibitors, drying agents, polymer systems and the like disclosed herein to further enhance the performance of the system or the appearance and performance of the resulting treated products.
  • [0028]
    The ambit of the present invention includes the use of a wide range of organic carriers. Non-limiting examples of organic carriers that can be used, either alone, or as mixtures, as solubility allows, include:

  • [0039]
    Also important is the penetration of the dispersed formulation into the cellular structure of the wood or other cellulose-based material. If the solids used in formulating the dispersion formulation disclosed herein have a particle size in excess of 30 microns, the particles may be filtered by the surface of the wood and thus may not be uniformly distributed within the cell and cell wall. FIG. 1 depicts the anatomy of coniferous wood. As shown in FIG. 2, the primary entry and movement of fluids through wood tissue occurs primarily through the tracheids and border pits. Tracheids have a diameter of about thirty microns. Fluids are transferred between wood cells by means of border pits.
  • [0040]
    The overall diameter of the border pit chambers typically varies from a several microns up to thirty microns while, the diameter of the pit openings (via the microfibrils) typically varies from several hundredths of a micron to several microns. FIG. 2 depicts the border pit structure for coniferous woods.
  • [0041]
    Particle sizes of the metal or low water solubility organic biocide used in the composition which exceed 30 microns tend to be filtered by the surface of the wood, thus not attaining a desired penetration and fluid flow through the wood tissue.
  • [0042]
    In one embodiment particle size of the micronized particles used in the dispersion formulation disclosed herein can have a long axis dimension (“size”) between 0.001-25 microns. In another embodiment, the particle size is between 0.001-10 microns. In another embodiment, the particle size is between 0.01 to 10 microns. If superior uniformity of penetration is desired, particle size of the additive used in the dispersion formulation disclosed herein should be between 0.01-1 microns.
  • [0043]
    In addition to a recommended upper limit of 25 microns, Particles which are too small can leach out of the wood over time. It is thus generally recommended that the particulate additive comprise particles which have diameters which are not less than 0.001 microns.
  • [0044]
    Particles which are too large can clog the wood, preventing it from taking in other particles and particles which are too small can leach from the wood. Thus particle size distributional parameters can affect the uniformity of particle distribution in the wood, as well as the leaching properties of treated wood. It is thus preferable to use particle size distributions which contain relatively few particle sizes outside the range of 0.001 to 25 microns. It is preferred that no more than 20 weight percent of the particles have diameters which are greater than 25 microns. Because smaller particles have an increased chance of leaching from the wood, it is also preferred that no more than 20 wt % of the particles have diameters under 0.001 microns. Regardless of the foregoing recommendations, it is generally preferred that greater than 80 wt % of the particles have a diameter in the range of 0.001 to 25 microns. In more preferred embodiments, greater than 85, 90, 95 or 99 wt % particles are in the range of 0.001 to 25 microns.
  • [0045]
    For increased degree of penetration and uniformity of distribution, at least 50 wt % of the particles should have diameters which are less than 10 microns. More preferred are particle distributions which have at least 65 wt % of the particles with sizes of less than 10 microns. In additional embodiments, less than 20 wt % of the particles have diameters of less than 1 micron.
