Born Based Wood Treatments
Boron Wood Treatments are based on water-soluble borate, a timber preservative that has been extensively researched over the last 50 years. The products in the Wykabor and N-Virobor range are formulated for use against fungal decay (dry rot, wet rot) and wood-boring insects.
Borates have the distinct advantage of exhibiting superb penetration into damp timber. Hence they can be used in high-risk areas such as embedded joist ends, lintels, wall plates, etc...
The benefits of using Boron based products are well recognised by architects and those in the building restoration industry. They are often specified on high-profile, prestigious projects where re-treatment is not an option. In many situations, the high performance of Wykabor and N-Virobor products may allow ordinal timbers to be retained that would otherwise have had to be replaced. This is obviously an advantage when treating historic buildings.
