Abstract from DBPedia
    Wood easily degrades without sufficient preservation. Apart from structural wood preservation measures, there are a number of different chemical preservatives and processes (also known as "timber treatment", "lumber treatment" or "pressure treatment") that can extend the life of wood, timber, and their associated products, including engineered wood. These generally increase the durability and resistance from being destroyed by insects or fungi.

    木材保存剤(もくざいほぞんざい wood preservative)は、人間にとって有害なシロアリや木材腐朽菌から木造住宅を守るために使用される薬剤。一般には防腐・防蟻の効果を持つものを指し、単独の効果を持つものを防腐剤、防蟻剤(insecticide for termite control)とも言う。
