At Master Woodturning we offer a range of treated timbers and pre-primed timbers all meeting Australian Standard Hazard Levels. Please feel free to contact our office should you require assistance in selecting which treated timber is best suited for your usage and to discuss your order requirements.
Treated timber is where it has been treated with a preservative to improve the timber’s resistance to attack by wood destroying fungi and insects. In other words, the timbers durability is enhanced to a level which is suitable for the intended use. However, such treatment does not always provide the timber protection against weathering.
Both untreated and treated timber used externally should be protected from the affects of weathering by the application of an appropriate oil base coating.
Different preservatives are used for the different protection requirements or Hazard Level. There are 6 main Hazard Levels which are based on the hazardousness of the exposure.
Treated Timber is a fundamental part of our range of products at Master Woodturning. We specialise in Australian and imported treated timber and we carry ample stock to fulfil both small and large volume orders. We pride ourselves on being able to meet our customer needs and demands in the full variety of treated timber products.
