High & Low Pressure Treatment

High and Low Pressure Treatment

Preserving the quality.

In order to preserve the end use of our timber we have been at the forefront of preservative applications since 1976. All preservatives applied are developed and distributed by Osmose Timber Technologies and are all water-based solutions. 

Low And High Pressure Treatment

Accommodating up to approximately 38m(3) of timber per individual preservation cycle, Tank number 1 applies Osmose Protim E415 a water based preservative which is used in a low pressure process; for use in construction projects that require protection and longevity e.g. roof timbers, timber framing, internal & external joinery and other internal & external timber projects, that are above dpc/ground level.  

Tank 2 holds approximately 20m(3) of timber per individual preservation cycle, and applies Osmose Celcure AC500 water-based preservative which is used in a high pressure process; for use in timber above dpc and also in ground contact. 

Both tanks and subsequent plants, are equipped with a software package; that ensures the correct amount of preservative is applied with vacuum and pressure processes accurately maintained throughout.   Working in partnership with Stewart Milne Timber Systems (SMTS) we worked with Osmose to source a permethrin free treatment preservative. The resulting preservative B610 is applied in a low-pressure process within a small treatment vessel in our Elm Park site for all our permethrin free preservative requests.     

We also offer our customers an older style preservative Osmose Protim E415 which is also water based.
