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 of wood preservatives as we ll as a range of Masonry Biocides. We also offer a range of Wykabor products, wood preservatives based on water-soluble borate, a timber preservative that has been extensively researched over the last 50 years.
Whatever your treatment needs, Platinum Building Chemicals can offer the most up-to-date products combining low hazards with effectiveness in use.
