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 '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
Surface Treatment - Boron Ultra 12 - 5%
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%
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 -
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
Inserted Solid Rods - Boron Rods
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.
