Range' is a solution 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 large structures,
has been that immediate drying out to below the danger level cannot be achieved
is the technical basis on which preservative treatments are justified. However,
many such treatments are unnecessarily destructive and expensive because they
rely on old techniques where extreme cut back of perfectly sound wood and plaster
is routine security for the Treatment Company and the Client.
The Boron approach is different: cut back sound timber and plaster to the minimum
to reach structurally sound material and treat the adjacent areas with dual action
Boron based preservatives.
Boron based treatments can be supplemented with a localised preservative paint
coating, to provide a NO-GO ZONE, over which Dry rot cannot travel to reach other

BORON ULTRA 12 - Surface Treatment - 1 Hour Re-Entry
unique powder concentrate, ready to dissolve in water, designed to treat timber
by brush, spray or Sprayfast Sprayer. 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 other less friendly contact type insecticides, including
BORON ULTRA 78 - Injected Treatment
unique SUPER STRENGTH paste using a special blend of technical grade glycols as
carriers. 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. 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 smaller
(8mm, rather than 10mm) and/or fewer drill holes.
ECOBOR ULTRA GEL 20 - Surface Applied Gel
20% active clear Gel ideal for end grain and bearing area treatment of beams and
joists. Also useful for medium to heavy active infestations of insect attack and
treatment of new timbers for use in vulnerable areas (e.g. skirting boards).
NO-GO ZONE PAINT - Coating
specially green pigmented preservative biocidal emulsion paint designed to prevent
the surface spread of Dry rot. Ideal for timber and masonry in the treatment of
adjacent areas, to provide visual lasting evidence of treatment. It prevents surface
spread of strands and mycelium.
BORON RODS - Solid Rods for Embedding
solid rods of HIGH STRENGTH Boron 173 are used to protect timbers which are constantly
or occasionally damp: external joinery, wall plates, embedded beam ends, posts
etc. They can also be used in conjunction with BORON ULTRA 78 paste, to act as
a long term reservoir (Standard Sizes - 8mm x 24mm and 8mm x 65mm).
TIMBER REPAIR SYSTEM - LOW DISTURBANCE
ideal way to repair timber is to use the Patented Timber-Resin Splice System.
The factory made timber units are supplied as Kits, ready to fit onto the cut
back ends of decayed beams of all types and sizes.
TRS Kits have a standard Lifetime Guarantee; they are Guaranteed for the Lifetime
of the timber to which they are attached. It therefore makes sense to provide
a matching Boron product for the preservation of the Parent timber, thus extending
the Lifetime to include the Parent. An additional Manufacturers Guarantee can
also be purchased, if specified.
BORACOL 10RH - special treatments for mould, slime, rots and insects
10RH and 5RH and thin liquids for application by brush or spray to timber or masonry
to kill moulds, rots and slime often found in teak yacht decking and other building
decks and walkways. Boracol 20 is a thicker, gloopy liquid designed to be brushed
or Microsprayed for treating timbers for woodworm and rots.
