Treatment

TREATMENT

Aquazole is a colourless water-based emulsion concentrate containing the well-proven combination
of tebuconazole and propiconazole plus permethrin as active ingredients.
 
Aquazole is intended to be diluted with water and may then be applied to dry timber using a
vacuum-pressure treatment process in a commercial timber treatment plant.
 
Wood treated with Aquazole will resist insect attack and decay in situations where the wood is
above ground but exposed to moisture. Suitable wood may be treated with Aquazole to meet the
requirements of AS1604.1 up to Hazard Class H3 and NZS3640 up to Hazard Class H3.1.
 

Active Ingredients

Aquazole contains propiconazole and tebuconazole as fungicides. This synergistic combination has
been well-proven for many years for above-ground exposed applications when applied to wood in a
controlled manner. Propiconazole and tebuconazole are non-metallic compounds commonly used as
fungicides for food crops such as cereals, rice, stone fruits.
 
In addition, the product contains permethrin which is a synthetic pyrethroid insecticide and prevents
attack by wood boring insects and termites.
 

AdditivES

Wood properties may be further enhanced with the addition of other products such as Cleanwood
mouldicide (for mould control on wood prior to installation) or Stabil AT (water repellent).
 

Disposal

Treated wood offcuts are not a hazardous waste and should be disposed of to landfill. Treated wood
offcuts should not be burnt in domestic wood fires or barbecues.
