RETAINING THE NATURAL LOOK OF WOOD

Wood is one of the most beautiful building materials known to man. For centuries timber has been used for construction and decoration. However, although beautiful, durability, especially of softwoods, has been a problem. Timber is the ideal breeding ground for decay fungi. It creates a suitable base, is loaded with food, and, once wet, allows fungi to thrive. One way around the problem is to use the most resistant of wood, such as teak or oak. These, together with other hardwoods, can overcome the problem. However, being able to provide enough product to satisfy demand has led to a serious problem of deforestation across the globe.




Easily grown and replaceable softwood is the ideal choice for many, and it’s now possible to extend the working life of this type of timber with two simple, yet effective treatments.

ACS Timber Treat is a single-pack, waterborne fungicidal treatment, based on vegetable oil. It penetrates deep into the timber, protecting it against fungi, such as sapstain and softrots. Once dry, it leaves no visible signs of application.

ACS Timber Treat has BPR authorization for amateur, professional and industrial use and can be supplied in packs from 1.0lt to 1,000lt IBC

Protecting the treatment is simplicity itself. Apply two coats of ACS Woodbead timber water repellent. Unlike most off-the-shelf products, Woodbead has been formulated specifically to work on wood. It prevents water uptake and protects softwoods for up to 10 years. In fact some field trial product is still repelling water, 17 years after application. Woodbead is waterborne, easy to apply and does not leave a film, allowing the natural beauty of the wood to show through. And, if you don’t like the idea of using wood preservatives, you can use Woodbead by itself. It’s not a preservative, but seriously reduces the water absorbed by timber, making it harder for decay to thrive.


So if the natural look is what you want our simple yet effective products will allow you to keep enjoying your timber for years to come.
