Ammonium pentaborate is a product resulting from the controlled reaction of ammonia, water, and boric acid.
Chemical fire retardants commonly used are Optibor (boric acid), Neobor (borax pentahydrate), or borax decahydrate, ammonium sulfate, ammonium phosphates, aluminum sulfate, aluminum trihydrate and gypsum.
Cellulose, the basis of wood, cotton, and most other plant-derived raw materials, is in widespread industrial use. It is inherently flammable in many of its forms—paper being a typical example.
Borogard ZB wood preservative provides protection from wood destroying organisms for wood composite materials used in protected above-ground applications.
Borogard ZB is not only the best treatment available, it’s also the only treatment that has proven effective in protecting oriented strand board (OSB) over time.
Weather takes a toll on both the plastic and wood components of woodfiber-plastic composites (WPCs) leaving them susceptible to rot, decay, mold, and degradation. Borogard ZB can help.
Optibor boric acids are a pure, multifunctional source of boric oxide. Apart from borax pentahydrate, they are the most widely used industrial borate.
Polybor is a multi-functional boron product with a general application in both industrial and consumer products. Polybor is a mild alkaline salt consisting of a fine white powder that is readily soluble in water.
Tim-bor Industrial high performance borate wood preservative has been specially designed to give a product with the highest concentration of boron at the maximum possible solubility and rate of dissolution in water.
