Wood Treatments from Platinum Chemicals.
Here in the UK, our traditional building methods combined with a predominantly damp, temperate climate causes the housing stock to suffer some of the highest levels of risk from insect and fungal attack to structural timbers. It is considered 'good practice' in building design to pre-treat timber with preservatives as a lifetime precaution against dry rot or woodworm.
Unfortunately, most traditional buildings (and many modern buildings too) do not have the benefit of such protection and this, combined with poor maintenance, leads to many cases of timber decay being identified during housing surveys.
Platinum Chemicals offer the Lignum Range, WoodGuard Range and Microtech Range of Wood Treatments, as well as a range of Boron Based Wood Treatments.
The Lignum Range include two Concentrated Products, a Woodworm ONLY Treatment (Lignum Pro I62.5), and a DUAL Woodworm & Dry Rot Treatment (Lingum Pro D156). Both products are diluted with water to make up to 25 Litres of ready-to-use product.
Lignum Pro Gel is a specialist thixotropic 'mayonnaise-like' timber paste which penetrates deeply into timbers. Lignum Pro Gel is particularly useful for application in 'high risk areas' such as joist ends, purlins, wall plates, cut ends and rafter ends.
Also within the Lignum Range are Ready-to-use products such as Lignum Woodworm Killer and Lignum Wood Preserver, available in 1 Litres and 5 Litres. These products are great for one-off small jobs, eliminating the need for pre-mixing, saving time with less waste.
The WoodGuard Range is similar to the Lignum Range mentioned above, consisting of a Woodworm ONLY Treatment (WoodGuard Insecticide) and a DUAL Woodworm & Dry Rot Treatment (WoodGuard Dual Fungicide & insecticide). Both WoodGuard Products dilute to make 25 Litres of ready-to-use product.
The Microtech Range is a range of super-concentrated Wood Treatments from Wykamol, consisting of a Woodworm ONLY Treatment (Microtech Insecticide) and a DUAL Woodworm & Dry Rot Treatment (Microtech Dual Fungicide & insecticide). Both Microtech Products dilute to make 25 Litres of ready-to-use product.
Platinum Chemicals also supply a wide range of Boron Based Treatments based on water-soluble borate, a timber preservative that has been extensively researched over the last 50 years.
Products within the Boron Range include Wykabor 10.1, a ready-to-use DUAL Woodworm & Dry Rot Treatment. Wykabor 20.1, a highly effective, deep penetrating timber gel which is used for applications similar to that of Lignum Pro Gel (mentioned above).
We also supply Boron Powders, Boron Timber Rods and and Injectable Boron Paste (Wykabor 40.1).
Finally, we also supply a small range of Solvent-Based Wood Treatments which should only be used for exterior applications. Products include Cromar Wood Treatment and Universal Dry Rot & Woodworm Killer+.
Whatever your treatment needs, Platinum Building Chemicals can offer the most up-to-date products combining low hazards with effectiveness in use.
