What Product is Used to Treat Fungi?

Tim-bor ®

Tim-bor ® can be applied as a solution, foam or dust for wood treatment against wood-destroying organisms, and as a solution or dust for general insect control. Tim-bor, applied as a solution or foam to wood, will penetrate into the wood to various depths dependent upon the moisture in the wood and the wood species. The active ingredient does not break down, therefore as normal moisture changes occur in the wood, Tim-bor is always available to be drawn deeper into the wood over time, providing long-lasting protection.Timbor is an insecticide, fungicide and wood preservative for the protection and treatment of lumber against fungal decay and wood destroying insects (including termites, beetles, and carpenter ants). Timbor gets its preservative power from the active ingredient DOT (disodium octaborate tetrahydrate).

What Fungi Do We Treat For?

1.White Rot attacks primarily hardwoods and causes a white or yellow discoloration by attacking the cellulose and lignin in the wood. Eventually, the wood will develop a spongy touch and stringy appearance.

2.Brown Rot attacks primarily softwoods and causes the wood to turn dark brown. Brown rot is often called “brown cubical rot” because of the way the wood can split across the grain, giving a checkerboard appearance or breaking off in cubes. Brown rot can weaken wood quickly, causing the wood to be very dry and powdery, hence the misleading nickname “dry rot.”
