Claymark’s Tru-Core treatment and preservation process is one of the most environmentally friendly options currently available.
Treatment and preservation of our Radiata timber is critical where it is used for any exterior application or where the wood is susceptible to wetting. Being a ‘softwood’, Radiata is not naturally durable. But due to its wood structure it is highly permeable which makes it easy to treat with preservatives which can give it durability characteristics which often far exceed those of naturally durable species. Furthermore, clearwood (wood from the outer part of trees and which is largely knot free – this is the type of wood Claymark produces) will be completely penetrated with preservatives. Treating with Tru-Core® ensures full treatment of the heart wood. This ensures the effectiveness of the treatment process. Claymark uses one of the most safest and environmentally friendly timber treatment processes available today. The Tru-Core® process uses a water-based carrier system that penetrates the wood and glue joints which results in 100% penetration of the cross section of wood being treated. The process is well contained, simple, and clean and because all products can be treated in their final shape and form there is no treated wood residues from gauging and planning after treatment. The Tru-Core® system consists of a broad spectrum of active fungicides, insecticides and termiticides – which give protection to the timber in all climates and situations.
