The aim of the reserach was to determine the antitermite properties of bark extract of mangium (Acacia mangium) on Gmelina wood (Gmelina arborea) and determine the optimum concentration levels and immersion duration. The research scheme applied completely randomized design, treatment is done factorially with 2 factor treatments. The first factor is concentration levels of bark extract (7 % , 5 % and 3 %). The second factor is immersion duration in preservative material are 24 hours, 48 hours,

Result showed that the higest retention found on 7 % concentration levels and 48 hours immersion (3,75 kg/m 3). The lowest wood sample weight loss found at concentration 7 % and 24 hours immersion (19,31 %).
