Borathor - Borate Technology Powered by Thor

Borathor Max PT

Treat their food. Treat the wood.

Borathor Max PT's active ingredient is a borate derived from the natural mineral borax. Borates are stomach poisons that control insects by poisoning them when they ingest them. Treat their food with enough of a borate containing compound and you can control almost any type of wood destroying insect and wood decay fungi. That's just what Borathor Max PT does. It is used to treat or load their food, which in this case is structural wood, with a toxic amount of a borate. Load the wood to a sufficient level with a borate and it is highly protected against attack by wood destroying pests.

D.O.T. Powered

Borathor Max PT contains as its active ingredient the borate containing compound disodium octoborate tetrahydrate, commonly referred to as DOT. DOT's key attribute is that it is a water soluble borate that dissolves easily in water. This makes it easy to deliver to wood surfaces. DOT is also highly soluble in certain glycols and combinations of glycols and water.

Borathor Max PT is a supersaturated solution of DOT in a glycol formulation. This borate/glycol combination, when mixed with water, creates a powerful termiticide/insecticide/fungicide spray solution that goes to work as soon as it is applied to wood either by surface treatment or injection. Borathor Max PT coats the wood surfaces to which it is applied with a protective layer of DOT. The DOT in Borathor Max PT also penetrates the wood with its depth of final penetration depending on factors such as wood moisture content and wood density. The glycols are intended to enhance the distance into the wood that the DOT penetrates compared to the depth the DOT would penetrate if it was applied only in solution in water.

Long Lasting Protection!

Borates are inorganic. This means that they will not degrade over time. As long as it is protected from moving moisture such as running water, the borate in BORATHOR MAX PT will remain in place on and inside the treated wood indefinitely, continuing to protect it from insect and fungi attack for as long as it is in service. Trust BORATHOR MAX PT to keep on protecting wood for a long time.

Go Green

Borates are a natural and low toxicity approach to wood protection. Good for you and good for the environment. BORATHOR MAX PT is a perfect fit for any green building initiative.

Borathor Max PT prevents or eliminates infestations of a wide range of wood destroying pests including the following:

  • Subterranean Termites (including Formosans)
  • Drywood Termites
  • Old House Borers, Longhorn Beetles and Powderpost Beetles
  • Carpenter Ants
  • Brown Rot (including Dry Rot), White Rot and other wood decay fungi

No Resistance

Because the DOT in Borathor Max PT is natural, termites and other pests have not developed any resistance to its effects.
