Your customers deserve long-lasting wood products. That means protecting your wood products for years. There are three facets involved in getting it right: A properly concentrated solution, the right treatment, and working with an experienced partner.
The wood and timber industries rely on borates for environmentally safe options for wood protection. Learn how borates protect, preserve, and extend the life of wood in a wide range of applications.
In a year of disruption, the lumber industry has been on a roller coaster of demand fluctuations. Adaptations from producers—and U.S. Borax—have helped close the lumber supply gap for home building and renovation.
Using borates for wood protection helps builders take advantage of wood’s carbon-reduction properties, cost-effective construction methods, and resilience to meet the housing needs of a growing global population.
The North American rail system runs on top of millions of wooden crossties. Borates provide wood protection that increases the service life, safety, and sustainability of this essential infrastructure.
You can help to protect homes and other wooden structures in humid regions from fungi, algae, and other threats. The key? Borates and continuous, innovative research.
Borate keeps you warm, and saves on household bills. It prevents timber and lumber from becoming home to insects and fungus. Tiles on the floor and walls are glazed with it and electrical cables are fireproofed with it. Boron is very much at home in your home.
