Borate preservative for wood composites and flame retardant protection for polymers
For more than 15 years, Borogard® ZB has successfully protected wood-plastic compounds (WPCs) against rot and decay, inhibited mold, and enhanced UV light stabilization. Its biostatic properties, low cost, and excellent safety attributes make Borogard® ZB the leading preservative treatment available.
Independent laboratory and field studies carried out by universities and government-testing facilities have shown that WPCs treated with Borogard® ZB resist the ravages of a range of wood-destroying organisms in aboveground uses, including:
- Decay-resistant siding, roofing, and millwork
- Termite-resistant sheathing and subflooring
- Commodities for export to high-decay-hazard regions
Borogard® ZB is a white, odorless, powder. A completely reacted zinc borate distributed homogenously throughout the WPC. When stored under normal conditions of temperature and humidity, Borogard® ZB is chemically stable and shows no tendency to cake.
