Conservation and Biosecurity. Fire retardant and wood preservative.

What is the preservation of wood?

The method by which reduces the risk of damage as a result of natural and biological factors of building constructions and furniture made of wood is called the conservation of wood.

Why wood processing?

To preserve the positive qualities of wood make it a treatment to remove mold or insects that may catch fire.

How to preserve the wood with their hands at home?

On the Internet you can find a lot of different recipes, as well as expensive ready means for the treatment of wood. We will not talk about each of them, and offer one of the most effective and at the same time is not cost-effective way. This will help you save your time and money.

Boric acid is water-soluble substance that is absorbed and then the wood surfaces penetrates due to diffusion, it can be used as agents for the preservation of wood. Boric acid by itself or mixed with sodium borate is particularly effective for reducing the flammability of materials containing cellulose.

Therefore, borax, and boric acid are used as flame retardants for wood structures and cellulose insulation.

Acid provides an improvement in fire resistance of different materials. Suppression fire occurs due to melting and burning material melt coating layer which prevents the supply of oxygen to the flame.

 How to prepare a tool for conservation?

Consumption per 1 m²

     Borax technical - 0.170 kg
     Boric acid-0.170 kg
     Water - 3 l

How to apply prepared means?

Is applied depending on the degree bioporazheny two ways:

1) seven times, without drying the previous layer, processing designs with soft brushes

2) simplified panel: saturation of the treated surface tassels heated solution to the swelling to his design; on the treated area overlaps polyethylene sheet (mounting pushpin close to the details). Panel promotes absorption solution directed into the timber.

 After the treatment, the wood gets:

     High density;
     Resistance to change in temperature and humidity of the environment;
     Full immunity to ultraviolet rays;
     The ability to withstand the brief heating of an open flame;
     Tightness for various oils;
     Resistance to organic solvents;
     Excellent decorative properties - stable wood is easy to work manually and mechanically.

The means for processing wood requirements:

They must be safe for human health and environment, t. E. Not to cause adverse reactions in people who are in the building, the processed drug not have a toxic effect on the environment.

You do not need to change the color Natural old wood.

You should not alter the physical and mechanical properties of wood in the direction of their deterioration
