Incising timber by creating small slits or pin holes in the surface of the timber to improve uptake and penetration of preservative has long been recognised as an accepted method for improving the durability of timber.

The incising equipment comprises of pressurised rollers with knives or pins that penetrate the surface of the timber before treatment with the preservative.

The main advantages of incising are;

  1. Drying time is reduced and more effective.
  2. The ability of producing a deeper and more uniform "envelope" of treatment of wood preservative.
  3. Improved penetration and retention of preservative.

Incising is the only process that can generate the minimum 6mm dept of penetration that is required for minimum expected 15 years service life as required by IS 436.

Celcure C4 is a new wood preservative on the Irish market which is optimised for "in ground" contact timbers. Celcure C4 is the strongest preservative currently available on the market and has been used extensively throughout Europe for close to 15 years. When used with incised timber, this tried and tested wood preservative offers the best protection for "in ground" timbers such as agricultural fencing posts.
