Shell-Guard RTU Wood Preservative

Shell-Guard RTU 

Borate-Glycol Wood Preservative

Ready-To-Use Wood Preservative

Borates are recognized as being the most effective "green" wood preservatives that are available.  Shell-Guard RTU is a ready-to-Use borate/glycol wood preservative that is colorless, odorless and has a very low toxicity to people and pets.  It is effective for preventing and eliminating wood decay and wood destroying insect infestations in exterior and interior wood members.

Shell-Guard RTU must be applied to bare wood for it to work.  Although most borate products must be dissolved in water prior to use, Shell-Guard RTU is ready-to-use so you can pour it right out of the container into your low pressure sprayer without the fuss of measuring, mixing and stirring.  And if you have any leftover you can pour right back into the container for later use.   

Another advantage to Shell-Guard RTU is its quick drying time.  Your logs will be ready to finish one to three days after it's applied.  Since it penetrates into the wood, one application of Shell-Guard RTU is permanent when exterior wood surfaces remain protected with one of our Lifeline exterior finish systems.  Shell-Guard RTU is labeled for the control of termites, wood boring beetles, carpenter ants and wood boring beetles, carpenter ants and wood decay fungi.
