RODS - the rods dissolve inside damp wood to kill and prevent Insect, Wet Rot
and Dry Rot attack
Rods' are part of a range of Boron based preservatives and are often used inside
wood together with Boron Paste, because these two products dissolve at different
rates according to moisture content.

BORON RODS - solid rods
for embedding dissolving Boron inside holes in wood
high strength solid Boron rods 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 Boron Rod Sizes - 8mm x 24mm and 8mm x 65mm).

Injecting Boron Ultra 78
Paste. Packets of 10 Boron Rods in 8mm diameter. Example of insertion
in a window frame and a joist.
ULTRA 78 PASTE - companion product to be injected inside holes in wood
unique 5% and 40% 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.

non-flammable - the Boron oxide that they produce as they dissolve is actually
a Flame Retardant
