The basic material of our things is the wood, but wood is one of the food source or hives of different insects or pest. That’s why wood treatment exists to protect the wood from the damage that is caused by the insects, decay fungi, and moisture. Eighty-five percent is made from the woods, our shelter and things and wood is a quick alternation if there is a lack of materials needed. If there is no treatment, the invasion of the insects and decay fungi, including moisture, will be rampage anywhere and it is complicated to deal without the application of wood treatment.
Wood treatment application process explains how it works, it involves a method process. The primarily of wood treatment is the process of non-pressure in the wood, using the preservative through brushing, spraying, soaking, steeping and soaking; by using cold and hot baths; including some additional method such as sap displacement, charring, application of preservative in making holes and lastly the process of diffusion.
The spray and brush treatments need a wide amount of time to practiced this method and most used by carpentry nowadays. Because of technology dominance in our era, technological development in spray preservative is invented, and it is a great advantage in spraying the surface in the timber. It performs a capillary movement that produces a liquid within the wood before the spray evaporates or runs off. If the hole occurs perforation is only limited, if this is the case this is not good for long-term worn. A manually brush or spray treatment with creosote coal tar can extend the lifespan of poles up to process. More coats provide great protection however, the successful coating must not perform until the first coat is already dried within the wood. It must be seasoned the wood before doing the treatment.
Dipping is the method of submerging the wood from the creosote bath within a few minutes or seconds. It has a similar result to the perforation of spraying and brushing treatment. This treatment is a less manual labor. Many types of equipment required and wide range quantities of preservative, and it is not sufficient in treating tiny lots of the timber. The dipping treatment is sufficient for the door and window sashes. Using a salt copper preservative is prohibited in this method.
Last the Steeping method, it is a factor such as wood moisture, species, soak duration and preservation. The absorption happens during the first three days or less two days, however, it will constantly slower the pace for the unspecified period, it means how long the wood can stay in the solution, the longer it takes, the better result of treatment. The good stepping basement waterproofing treatment of the timber seasoned is the merged of water and the salt soak preservative and do it twice is necessary. Poles and posts can be performed on the endangered surface or are directly, but it must be treated lesser 30 centimeter above the next ground degree.
Therefore the natural way of wood treatment is the basic basis of all new wood treatment nowadays. And regardless of newly invented treatment the basic is still prominent until now.
