Timber Treatments

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... Read More

Boron Timber Treatments Woodworm & Dry Rot Treatment

Wykabor 40.1 is a glycol-based wood preservative formulation containing disodium octaborate tetrahydrate.

Wykabor 40.1 is designed for use by injection into larger dimension timbers, to protect against wood boring insects and fungal decay.

It is particularly suited for use in damp / wet timbers in contact with masonry (e.g. joist ends, wall plates etc.) where the active ingredients can diffuse into ‘high risk’ areas.

Treatments may be supplemented by a surface application of Wykabor 10.1.

Wykabor 40.1 is approved for use only by professional operators under The Control of Pesticides Regulations 1986. Read the label before use.

  Wykabor 40.1 carries the HSE Approval No 10362.

Supplied in 400ml Cartridges complete with extension nozzle.

Properties

Product Benefits:

  • Deep penetration in wet and dry wood.

  • Odourless.

  • Highly effective, dual purpose preservative.

Active Ingredients:

Disodium Octaborate 40% w/w.

Preparation

All bats are protected under The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. Before treating any structure used by bats, consult Natural England, Scottish National Heritage, The Countryside Council for Wales or The Department of the Environment for Northern Ireland.

Wykabor 40.1 is suitable for use in bat roosts.

Before deciding on appropriate preservative treatment, carefully evaluate the structural integrity of timbers and repair and / or replace those considered unsound (isolated from masonry where possible). Locate and rectify any sources of dampness.

Wykabor 40.1 can be used to treat sound (new or existing) timbers. For timbers already suffering from fungal decay / insect attack, treatments can be applied effectively as long as measures are also taken to remove sources of moisture and / or improve ventilation in the adjoining areas.

Timbers left in direct contact with masonry below ground level, or in other situations where there is a known continuing source of moisture, can be treated in-situ but should be re-inspected periodically to access their condition.

Cover water storage tanks and remove or cover fish tanks and bowls and any food stuffs etc. before application. Do not use on food preparation or storage surfaces.

Wykabor 40.1 is a deeply penetrating product which causes staining to both the treated timber and any porous materials it is contact with (e.g. plaster, masonry).

Further, when timbers are dry, the boron salts may appear as surface crystals in places.

THESE FACTORS MAKE THIS PRODUCT SUITABLE ONLY FOR THE TREATMENT OF STRUCTURAL TIMBERS WHICH WILL NOT BE EXPOSED AS A DECORATIVE FEATURE.

If sensitive linings or overlay materials are to be used in direct contact with treated timbers they should be isolated by the use of an impervious barrier.

If treatments are being carried out as part of a dry rot eradication program carefully establish the full extent of the infestation and use Wykabor 10.1 to sterilise affected masonry as necessary.

ACS | Woodworm & Dry Rot Treatment

Boron Timber Treatments Woodworm & Dry Rot Treatment

Boron Timber Rods are cylindrical implants composed entirely of anhydrous boric oxide. They contain the maximum level of borate preservative available in rod form.

Boron Timber Rods are used as a wood preservative to control wood rotting fungi and wood boring beetles in new and existing structural and joinery timbers.

The preservative is mobilised when exposed to dampness (wood moisture content greater than 35% w/w).

Suitable for use in timbers already at risk of or showing signs of decay (see also Wykabor 10.1 and Wykabor 40.1) or as a preventative treatment in sound dry timbers which may be exposed to wetting in service (e.g. window, door frames).

Note: For full protection against wood boring beetles where the timbers may remain relatively dry in service, and / or protection against fungal decay due to surface wetting which does not mobilise the protective agent in Boron Timber Rods, a surface application of a suitable liquid preservative as an adjunct to rod installation is recommended.

Boron Timber Rods are approved for use as directed under The Control of Pesticide Regulations 1986. Read all precautions before use.

For Professional Use Only.

  Boron Timber Rods are an HSE Approved product.

Supplied in 5 Sizes, 10 Rods per Pack.

  • (W) 8mm x (L) 24mm
  • (W) 8mm x (L) 48mm
  • (W) 8mm x (L) 65mm

  • (W) 12mm x (L) 100mm
Properties

Product Benefits:

  • Highly concentrated wood preservative implants

  • Convenient to handle.

  • Full cross-section protection in damp wood

  • Wide range of applications

Active Ingredients:

Boric Oxide 87.4% w/w

Disodium Tetraborate 9.81% w/w

Preservative Power: 1g Boron Timber Rod is equivalent to 1.69g Boric acid
equivalents. (The toxicity of boron compounds to insects and fungi depend on the boron content, which is normally expressed in terms of equivalent amounts of boric acid).

Preparation

Health & Safety Recommendations:

Take the usual labour hygiene into account.

PPE should be worn during application. See our Safety & PPE Products.

Consult label and material safety data sheet for more information.

Preparation:

All bats are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. Before treating any structure used by bats, consult English Nature (etc).

Before deciding on an appropriate preservative treatment, carefully evaluate the structural integrity of timbers and/or replace those considered unsound (isolating from masonry where possible). Locate and rectify sources of moisture and improve ventilation as appropriate.

Following assessments by a qualified surveyor sound and / or slightly decayed timbers left in contact with masonry or soil below DPC level, or in other situations where there is a continuous source of moisture, may be treated with Boron Timber Rods (possibly together with other Boron Products). However, the full extent of eradication or protection cannot be predicted generally. Re-inspection at least every 5 years is therefore recommended under these circumstances.

Timbers treated with Boron Timber Rods may exhibit surface crystallisation of boric acid under certain circumstance and this should be taken account of when considering their use for the protection of internal (uncoated) decorative timbers.

Boron Timber Rods are compatible with all conventional wood primers and exterior wood coatings, and will have no adverse effects on paint adhesion.

Application

Drill holes in the timbers to be treated approximately 1-2mm greater in diameter and at least 10mm longer than the rod to be used.

The hole should be drilled to a depth not more than 20mm from the rear of each section.

Once inserted (pushed firmly to the bottom of the hole) the rods are sealed in position with a suitable filler or plastic cap / timber dowling.

The number and configuration of the holes / rods will depend on the type and use of timber and the area considered at risk of wetting.

For window frames, in most situations, rods (of a suitable diameter/length) should be inserted at 100mm intervals along the grain (e.g. sills) and at 50mm across the grain.

In vertical elements the first rod should be placed no more than 50mm from any end grain / joints. Overall coverage of ca. 6-7kg Boron Timber Rods per m³ should be achieved in vulnerable areas.

In joists, a similar pattern is recommended but special care should be taken to ensure protection of concealed (built-in) sections in contact with masonry.

The first holes should be as close to the masonry as possible and drilled downwards at an angle to finish not more than 30mm from the joist end.

For fence posts drill a hole at 45° to the groundline to a depth at least equal to 110% of the post diameter (see diagram below) and insert a rod of appropriate size.

It may be considered advantageous to apply Boron Timber Rods in conjunction with Wykabor 40.1 in order to provide a ‘fast’ and ‘slow’ distribution of the preservative material into the surrounding timber (especially if some decay is already established or the wood moisture content at the time of treatment is below 35% w/w).

Finishing:

When desired, paint finishes can be applied to dry timbers surfaces without delay.

Exterior Wood Treatment

Cromar Wood Treatments are liquid pigmented stains for exterior use. The stain penetrates wood easily and thereby gets into inner layers.

The pigmented product protects wood to a certain extent against the damaging effects of UV light and enhances its water repellency. After drying it is odourless. Natural grain and texture of the wood are accentuated.

For use on all outside wood, that is not in direct contact to soil or water surface and not stressed statically. This includes facades, carports, shutters and balcony railings.

The product should NOT be used indoors.

Supplied in 5 Litre and 25 Litre containers, ready-to-use solution. Available in a range of colours.

Colours

Red Cedar & Rich Mahogany:

Red Cedar & Rich Mahogany Treatments are suitable for use on external timbers where it will revive the colour of faded cedar timber.

Typical external uses are on facias, sheds, fences and greenhouse. It can be used on other light coloured timber to give a red cedar effect.

Treated timber is not suitable for varnishing or overpainting and direct contact with plant life is not recommended.

Light Brown & Dark Brown:

Light Brown & Dark Brown Wood Treatments can be used for the protection of external timbers such as fences, pots, sheds etc. against damaging effects of UV light.

Use of these treatments on timber which will come into contact with plant life is not recommended.

Treated timber is not suitable for subsequent varnishing or overpainting.

Green:

Green Wood Treatment can be used to protect constructional timber, fences etc.

It is suitable for use on timbers in the horticultural industry such as greenhouses and internal staging, cold frames and plant supports.

It can also be used to preserve hessian and netting.

Treated timber can be overpainted at a later date preferably using an aluminium based primer, if light preservation then Wood Treatment Clear should be used.

Clear:

Clear Wood Treatment can be used both to protect construction timbers against UV light and enhances its water repellency.

Typical uses are on doors and windows frames, floorboard, joists roof timber, sheds etc.

It is a clear solution and therefore can be overpainted or varnished when dry.

Application

Preparation:

Ensure that the timber to be treated is fully dry and that paint or varnish will not restrict penetration.

Replace rotted timber, cutting back to sound areas. Cure sources of dampness and treat dry rot (and surrounding areas) on brickwork and masonry with two coats of Universal Woodworm & Dry Rot Killer.

Note: Be sure to read all conditions relating to use and safety listed on the container before commencing work.

Application:

Shake the container vigorously to ensure contents are thoroughly mixed. Apply two liberal coats by brush or low pressure spray, ensuring saturation of joints and end-grain.

Coverage:

This is greatly dependant on the type of timber being treated, but as a rough guide coverage will be effective at 140-180ml/m² for each coat.

Health & Safety Recommendations:

Take the usual labour hygiene into account.

PPE should be worn during application. See our Safety & PPE Products.
