To Retreat Lumber- We all know that as wood ages it cracks, splits, becomes very porous and exposed. It is common to see untreated surfaces exposed where it is obvious no chemical was or remains. To protect those surfaces from insects and decay, apply PenaShield. PenaShield's active ingredient is Borate Mineral Salt which is the same element commonly used in Pressure Treated Lumber. Because of its low toxicity and ready to use formula, PenaShield is an excellent solution for DIY'ers to retreat aged or weather wood-decks, fences, pergola's, etc. In exterior applications apply PenaShield prior to painting or staining and always prior to sealing the lumber. PenaShield will remain in the lumber and effective in exterior applications as long as you maintain a proper sealer on the wood.
The active ingredient in PenaShield is a borate mineral salt which sets PenaShield apart from competitors in that the mineral salt will not break down over time like other synthetic chemicals. Whenever you're working with wood, whether it's projects or repairs, always use PenaShield to protect the wood.
