Boron Based Timber Treatments

The 'Ultra Boron Range' is an essential part of Timber Repair and Treatment. It provides a an odour free product for every situation where timber decay has resulted in Dry rot or other fungal decay and where the residual moisture content of the timber leaves the structure at risk.

Dry rot cannot survive and travel at a moisture content of less than 18% in timber. Elimination of the moisture source has always been the prime objective. The practical reality, especially with structures has been that immediate drying out to below the danger level cannot always be achieved before reinstatement.

This is the basis on which preservative treatments are justified. However, many such treatments are unnecessarily destructive and expensive because they rely on old techniques where cut back is a security for the Treatment Company and the Client.

The 'Ultra Boron Range' approach is different: cut back the minimum to reach structurally sound material and treat the adjacent areas with dual action Boron based preservatives.

These Boron based treatments can be supplemented with a localized preservative paint coating, to provide a NO-GO ZONE, over which Dry rot cannot travel to reach other untreated areas.

Surface Treatment - Boron Ultra 12 - 5% and 10%

A unique powder concentrate, ready to dissolve in water, designed to treat timber by brush, spray or MicroBlower. It avoids the hazard problems of many liquid preservatives by using only water as a carrier. It can also be used in most situations to replace most other insecticides, including Permethrin.

Surface Treatment - Boron Ultra Gel - 5% and 20%

A unique Gel concentrate, ready to use, designed to treat timber by brush. Allows a thicker layer of treatment to cling to the timber, giving higher loadings for vulnerable damp patches and end grain.

Injected Treatment - Boron Ultra Paste - 40%

A unique SUPER STRENGTH paste using a special blend of technical grade glycols as the carrier. It can be injected into timber, with the advantage of supplying a highly concentrated mobile preservative which will spread even at low moisture content levels (down to about 12% WME). Simple to apply with a standard skeleton gun; more effective to use because of the higher available level of active content, which allows the use of 10mm drill holes.

Barrier Coating - 'NO GO ZONE' Dry Rot Paint

A special preservative biocidal emulsion paint designed to prevent the surface spread of Dry rot. Ideal for timber and masonry in the treatment and adjacent areas, to provide visual lasting evidence of treatment. It prevents surface spread of strands and mycelium.
