Complete Timber Resin assemblies have been weathered for over 15 years

We manufactured a softwood slotted timber in the year 2000 and installed high tensile (unprotected) steel rebar inside Structural Epoxy Pouring Resin as a durability test. The timber was only surface treated using two coats of our Boron Ultra 12 powder in water at 10% solution.

The timber component was then left outside in full weather near the coast in South Devon to test the durability of the Epoxy Resin, the protective effect of the resin on the steel and the bond between the resin, steel and wood in widely varying conditions.

Beam upgrade left out in all weathers, Coastal Environment.

Arrows point to the steel bars where the upgraded beam has been cut in half.

Close up of the cut end. No rust or rust stains.

No wood decay, splitting or separation.


Conclusions

1. Structural Epoxy Pouring Resin is unaffected by weathering, even in Coastal Environments - C4 Environments - for at least 15 years

2. Structural Epoxy Pouring Resin fully protects steel rebar from corrosion in a C4 Environment for at least 15 years

3. Structural Epoxy Pouring Resin remains fully bonded to timber for at least 15 years of wetting and drying

4. Softwood timber is well protected by Boron Ultra 12 at 10%, despite being in partial ground contact in a C4 Environment.

We are therefore confident that the combination of Structural Epoxy Resins, Bright Zinc Plated High Tensile Steel and Boron Ultra 12 treatment can more than cope with more normal indoor environments.
