Note: Text based on automatic Optical Character Recognition processes. Please use the PDF version for legal matters

CLAMS

1. An insecticidal coating composition for use on cellulosic substrates comprising: a) a polyvinyl acetate emulsion;
b) a vinyl acetate ethylene copolymer emulsion; and
c) an insecticide having an LD50 value of between about 14,500 and 15,500
mg/kg.

2. The insecticidal coating composition of claim 1 further including an inorganic filler.

3. The insecticidal coating composition of claim 2 wherein said filler is selected from the group consisting of clay, talc and mica.

4. The insecticidal coating composition of claim 1 further including a defoaming agent.

5. The insecticidal coating composition of claim 1 further including a leveling agent.

6. The insecticidal coating composition of claim 1 further including a preservative.

7. The insecticidal coating composition of claim 1 further including a humectant.

8. The insecticidal coating composition of claim 1 further including a wax emulsion comprising natural or synthetic waxes.

9. The insecticidal coating composition of claim 1 wherein said insecticide is a pyrethroid insecticide.

10. The insecticidal coating composition of claim 9 wherein said insecticide comprises deltamethrin.

11. The insecticidal coating composition of claim 1 having a pH of between about 5.8 and 6.7.

12. The insecticidal coating composition of claim 1 having a pH of between about 6.0 and 6.5.

13. An insecticidal coating composition for use on cellulosic substrates comprising:
from about 5 to about 30 wt% of a polyvinyl acetate emulsion;
from about 5 to about 30 wt% of a vinyl acetate ethylene copolymer emulsion;
from about 5 to about 50 wt% of an organic filler;
from about 1 to 15 wt% of a wax emulsion; and
from about 0.1 to 2.5 wt% an insecticide.

14. The insecticidal coating of claim 13 wherein said filler is selected from the group consisting of clay, talc, mica, and mixtures thereof.

15. The insecticidal coating of claim 13 further including from about 0.05 to about 0.50 wt% of a defoaming agent.

16. The insecticidal coating of claim 13 further including from about 0.05 to about 1 wt% of a leveling agent.

17. The insecticidal coating of claim 13 further including from about 0 to 0.50 % of a preservative.

18. The insecticidal coating of claim 13 further including from about 1.0 to about 15 wt% of a humectant.

19. A coated cellulosic substrate having first and second major surfaces, with at least one of said major surfaces having coated thereon an insecticidal coating, said coating comprising an insecticide having an LD50 value of between about 14,500 and 15,500 mg/kg in a blend of polyvinyl acetate and vinyl acetate ethylene.

20. The coated cellulosic substrate of claim 19 wherein said substrate is selected from corrugated board, linerboard, paper, paper bags, wooden pallets, and paper composite pallets.

21. The coated substrate of claim 19 wherein said insecticidal coating is about 1 to about 4 microns thick.

22. A method of applying an insecticidal coating to a cellulosic substrate comprising: providing a cellulosic substrate having first and second major surfaces; and
applying an insecticidal coating composition to at least one of said major surfaces of said substrate; said insecticidal coating comprising a polyvinyl acetate emulsion; a vinyl acetate-ethylene copolymer emulsion; and an insecticide having an LD50 value of between about 14,500 to 15,500 mg/kg.

23. The method of claim 22 including drying said insecticidal coating after applying said coating to said at least one major surface of said substrate.
