The 22 km long Mooi River Irrigation Canal, supplying water to the remote Keate’s drift area of KwaZulu-Natal, was […]
Rubio Monocoat oil doesn’t contain any water or solvents and is based on natural ingredients. This means that the product is very safe to use, but equally safe for your environment. Thanks to our technology, the consumption is much lower than for a traditional system. This results in a durable colouring and protection in one single layer. Once the fibres are bonded with the oil, the wood doesn’t absorb any surplus product - which makes a second layer superfluous.
To guarantee a transparent finish and reliable protection for oak and other types of light coloured wood, we developed the RMC Invisible Oil System. It may look like the wood hasn’t been treated, but this oil system gives the wood a natural look while still guaranteeing lasting protection. The RMC Invisible Oil System combines the RMC Invisible Oil and the RMC Invisible Maintenance Oil for a wear- and stain-resistant result.
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...
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.
