Wood Care Systems recently appointed Osmose Utilities as the exclusive distributor for Bor8 Rods in North America.
Osmose is proud to add Bor8 Rods to the list of available wood pole treatment products. These glass-like solid rods do not contain heavy metals. They are composed of 96.65% water diffusible borate wood preservative and contain 7% more boric acid equivalent (BAE) than copper amended rods. Borate-based wood preservatives are recognized as being highly diffusible and known for their ability to help control wood destroying fungi and insects. When the wood moisture content approaches levels thought to support decay - about 25% - Bor8 Rods dissolve and diffuse, following the path of moisture to provide a pattern of protection against decay.
