Why Timbor?

Tim-Bor Professional, one of New Zealand's most popular wood treatment products, eliminates wood destroying organisms and offers long-lasting protection with great application flexibility. Its active ingredient has no known resistance.

Architects can specify a Tim-bor Professional application to wooden structures for the control of carpenter ants, dry wood termites, wood decay fungi and wood boring beetles. Applied by Pest Management Professionals (PMPs), Tim-bor Professional is a water-soluble borate powder that can be applied as a dust, spray, foam or mist onto wood and cellulosic materials or inside wall voids, cracks and crevices.

Depending on the moisture content of the materials, the liquid solution will penetrate to create a protective envelope, acting as a preservative, insecticide and fungicide. The dust provides an additional layer of protection by killing carpenter ants, dry wood termites and adult wood boring beetles that enter the structure and pass through it.

Tim-bor Professional can be used as a wood preservative, fungicide and insecticide on its own or in conjunction with other treatments as a supplement. Because of its application flexibility as a dust or liquid, PMPs can address many treatment niches with this single product – Tim-bor Professional can be applied as a dust, spray, foam or mist onto wood and cellulose materials or inside wall voids, cracks and crevices.

Tim-bor is a water soluble, inorganic borate salt with insecticidal and fungicidal properties. It is an effective treatment for wood to kill and prevent infestations of decay fungi including white rot, brown rot (i.e. Poria) and wet rots. Tim-bor does not treat mold or prevent mold from growing.

Protects the home. Guaranteed.

Tim-bor is a termiticide, insecticide and fungicide treatment that can be applied to all wood during the dried-in phase of construction or old houses. When applied, it diffuses into the wood and remains there for the life of the wood. Treatment also provides protection against wood decay, carpenter ants and wood boring beetles.
