ColourCem

ColourCem is a coloured cement pigment, comprised of a milled blend of white or grey Portland cement and carefully selected compatible pigments. Its strengths parallel those of Portland cement, though for darker shades, it’s recommended to utilise up to 10% more ColourCem to achieve the desired strength.

ColourCem Colour Chart

Cemcrete’s COLOURCEM range offers a versatile selection of pigmented mineral binders suitable for a variety of decorative and functional applications. With hues ranging from classic neutrals like black, white, and sandstone to vibrant tones such as yellow, orange, and red, as well as earthy shades like cocoa, tan, and terracotta, the range provides ample opportunities for creative expression in architectural and design projects.

Wood Preservation Regulations - Interpretation

There are two regulations in South Africa that apply to wood preservation. Both these regulations refer to compliance of SANS 10005, and in order for the reader, end-user, specifier, regulating authority etc. to fully understand the interpretation or intent of each regulation, one needs to read it in context with the relevant clauses given in SANS 10005, The preservative treatment of timber. SANS 10005 (previously SABS 05) is the code of practice that was developed many years ago as a guidance document on all matters pertaining to wood preservation, i.e. wood preservative types, processes, methods, treatment requirements, hazard classifications, reference to the relevant product specifications, handling precautions etc. SANS 10005 is commonly referred to by industry as “the bible” of wood preservation…

Preservatives for Pressure Treatment of Wood

Pressure Treatment of Wood information on the Preservatives used for pressure treatment of wood guidance note and regulations  

How to plant a pole

How to plant a pole – guidance note The process of proper preservative treatment of timber requires for the preservative to be deeply impregnated into the permeable or treatable sapwood, resulting in a deep envelope of preservative treatment around the central and inner impermeable or untreatable heartwood. It is preferable that timber is purchased in the size and shape in which you intend to use it.

SAWPA | Exterior Wood Finishes: Selection, Application, Maintenance and Renovation

Exterior surface coatings play an important role in the final steps of the manufacture or construction and later, in the maintenance and renovation of wooden objects and structures. The consumer expects a reasonable level of performance from these finishes. However, the performance and hence the selection of an acceptable finish for an exterior wooden structure or product is influenced by several factors. These include wood characteristics, environmental exposure conditions, appearance of the finished product as well as durability, cost, ease of application, maintenance and renovation or removal of the finish….

Timber Treatment & the Law

Timber Treatment & the Law In South Africa there are two regulations applicable to preservative-treated timber.

BUY ONLY CERTIFIED TREATED TIMBER POLES THAT CARRY THE CORRECT MARKINGS

BUY ONLY CERTIFIED TREATED TIMBER POLES THAT CARRY THE CORRECT MARKINGS

Guidance Note: Treated Wooden Poles

Treated wooden poles (excluding utility poles) can be produced under either SANS 457 or SANS 1288.

CCA (Copper Chrome Arsenate) Preservative Treated Wood

CCA Preservative Treated Wood SAWPA SAFETY PRECAUTIONS AND WARNINGS FOR USE, HANDLING AND DISPOSAL

Iso-Lam Insulating Panels

Our aesthetically pleasing product has excellent thermal insulating values, thereby creating a more comfortable environment to live and work in. These insulation properties make it ideal for insulating roofs, ceilings and walls. The additional advantage is that it provides a permanent maintenance-free internal surface

SAWPA | Sapwood and Heartwood

A tree trunk has three main zones; the bark, the sapwood and the heartwood. Trees are basically triangular in shape and they gain height by growing outwards and upwards. At the start of each growing season, a new layer is added to the outside of the wood so that every part of the tree gets bigger – roots, trunk, branches and twigs.

CCA Treated Timber

CCA (Copper-Chrome-Arsenate) is an industrial wood preservative and is widely used in South Africa. When applied to timber it enhances the durability by preserving it against biological deterioration such as insect attack (wood borer and termites) and fungal decay (rot). In South Africa only CCA Type C is allowed to be used as it is internationally recognised as the most stable and effective type, i.e. apart from its efficacy as a timber preservative, it successfully fixes to the lignocellulose material in wood. CCA may only be applied by industrial high pressure process from where the familiar term “pressure treated wood” hails from.

Understanding the Markings on Treated Timber

South African Standards SANS 1288, SANS 457-2/3 and SANS 753/4 specify the marking requirements for any preservative treated product that claims to comply with the respective Standards. The following information must be contained in the marking: a unique plant identifier or trademark, product certification mark, SANS standard designation, a hazard class, date or year of manufacture of poles…

Natural Durability of Wood

An important consideration when building with timber is predicting how long the structure will last. Whilst insects, decay or rotting organisms and marine borers can all attack wood, some timber species have the ability to resist attack better than others. The natural durability of a species to resist attack by wood destroying organisms is an indication of how long that timber will last when it is exposed to a defined set of exposure conditions without any additional preservative protection. The natural durability of timber species varies, even so within the wood from the same species of tree, depending on whether its sapwood or heartwood.

Timber Decking Substructure Regulations and Preservative Treatment

This Guidance Note addresses the importance of the use of properly preservative treated timber in the  construction of substructures for timber decks and its compliance with the requirements as stipulated in the Building Regulations and relevant SANS Standards.
