H3 TRU-CORE Green (Copper Quat)
Outside above ground rot & termite protection for hardwood, softwood, engineered wood products, plywood, LVL, glulam, beams, sills, posts, fascia, cladding, decking and joist.
H3 TRU-CORE Green (Copper Quat) wood treatment process is capable of protecting timber from borers & termite attacks and rot (moderate decay) outside above ground applications.
Typical colour of the treated timber is blue-green rather than the usual dull green. This blue-green colour occurs because the treating solution strength is higher as the treating process results in a lower water uptake in the wood. Traditional higher water uptake treating schedules use lower copper strengths, so the resulting treated wood appears a dull green.
When cut, the core of the cross-section of the wood has a lighter green and streaked appearance.
Better Treated Wood
- The TRU-CORE Process results in distribution of the preservative actives throughout the penetration zones.
A much greater proportion of the heartwood content is penetrated than as required by the timber treatment standards. This provides better protection against decay, rot and insects when non-durable heartwood is present.
- The unique TRU-CORE Process uses MUCH less water than other Copper based treatments to penetrate the wood.
- Less water used in the treatment allows the wood to be treated in its final shape and form.
> Machining and planing is conducted before treatment.
> In traditional wet treatments, the wood is often re-dried, then planed after treatment.
> Extra costs, warping/ twisting/cracking, loss of preservative and generation of treated shavings are problems with ‘wet’ treated timber.
- Because less water is utilized in the TRU-CORE Process, even engineered woods like LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber) may be treated without impacting glue line strength properties.
H3 TRU-CORE Green treated timber is penetrated through sapwood and heartwood and does not contain harmful chemicals such as solvent. It comes with a 25 & 50 year guarantee from insect attacks and/or fungal decay (see warranty details).
