NO-ROT is a unique solid wood preservative used for the internal treatment of timber. It will stop and prevent rot and white ant attack. It is a concentrated mix of fungicide and insecticide, combined together in a controlled release, small chalk like stick. This is the same technique as used to preserve timber electricity poles throughout Australia as shown in the picture adjacent.
Since using NO-ROT type preservative the power pole below the ground now outlasts the section exposed to the atmosphere.
NO-ROT can be used as a timber treatment for all outdoor timber structures which are exposed to weather or if the ingress of moisture is an issue. Typical uses are to treat pergolas, timber decks, steps, fence posts and railing, window frames & Boat framing susceptable to fresh water exposure. It can also be used as an internal timber treatment where it’s subjected to persistent moisture, such as in bathroom wall cavities & Boat framing susceptable to fresh water exposure.
Timber which has existing decay can also be treated with NO-ROT, to sterilise the timber and prevent further attack. All timber species can be treated.
NO-ROT will only be activated in the timber with a moisture content greater than 20%. Timber treated in this situation will also resist termite attack.
