Recommended Uses

NO ROT Rods can be used as a timber treatment for all outdoor timber structures which are exposed to weather or the ingress of moisture is an issue. Typical uses are to treat pergolas, timber decks, steps, fence posts and railing, window frames, etc.  It can also be used as an internal timber treatment where it’s subjected to persistent moisture, such as in bathroom wall cavities.

Timber which has existing decay can also be treated with NO-ROT, to sterilise the timber and prevent further attack. All timber species can be treated. NO-ROT will only be activated in the timber with a moisture content greater than 20%. Timber treated in this situation will also resist termite attack.

Directions For Use

Drill one or two 9 mm (3/8 inch) hole 40 mm (1 3/4 inch) into the timber at the position where decay commonly occurs. Insert one NO-ROT into each hole and seal holes with the wooden dowels supplied.

Under normal conditions the sticks should be replaced every 5-10 years.

Maintenance

On exposure to air the emulsion will darken and form a skin within a few hours. The oil component will continue to be absorbed and will creep along the timber grain. A dark green to black residue may remain and is easily scraped off. The timber itself where treated will change to a dark brown or black colour. Absorptionmay take up to two weeks out of ground contact. Re-application requirements will depend on the nature of the item being protected and the severity of the hazard. Extensive field testing has shown that IGP can provide protection from decay even in ground contact for over 10 years. In practice, for ground contact situations such as utility poles piles and other structures, re-inspection is recommended after 5 years and re-application should be done at least every 10 years in most cases.
