Antiblu® provides economical and effective short-term protection to freshly harvested and sawn timbers. It is an advanced boron free, waterborne timber treatment formulation that provides protection against sapstain and surface moulds.
Providing protection against sapstain and mould throughout seasoning, storage and transport, Antiblu® Select 3787 helps to maintain the wood’s clean and bright appearance, and its commercial value. It is ideal for the protection of pallet and packaging timbers.
Antiblu® can be applied to a range of timber species through simple dipping or deluge processes. Because it is non-corrosive, it can be used for in-line production processes within sawmills.
Sapstain, sometimes called blue stain, and mould is caused by fungi which thrive on freshly cut logs and sawn timber causing unsightly discolouration. Infected timber is unacceptable for many end uses, representing a huge loss in value. Antiblu® protects against this, helping to maintain the commercial value of timbers.
