Perma-Chink Shell-Guard provides the ultimate protection against insects and wood rot for your log home. This new generation of preservative combines the well-known effectiveness of borates with a glycol system that increases the penetration into the wood to enhance the action of the borate. Shell-Guard is colorless and odorless. The glycols used are the same type as those found in many food and skin care products. Shell-Guard is a concentrate that is mixed with an equal amount of water, then applied to bare wood with a brush or as a spray. Once in the wood, it will kill insects that eat wood such as wood boring beetles and termites. It also kills the types of fungi that are responsible for rot and decay. Learn more about Perma-Chink.

Wood must be clean and bare: free of dirt, wax and surface finishes. Remove all previous coatings or sealants. Remove mold and mildew prior to applying SHELLGUARD. Do not apply to frozen wood. Surface temperature must be between 40°F and 90°F. For remedial and preventative control of organisms attacking wood, apply the diluted solution of SHELLGUARD by brush, spray or dipping until surface is thoroughly wet ( one gallon per 108 sq.ft.). Thoroughly soak cut ends. Application may also be made by drilling and then injecting the solution under pressure into sound wood until run-off is observed from entry/exit holes of infested wood. Treatment methods as described yields an approximate retention level of .24lbs per cubic ft. boric acid equivalent (BAE) in the outer 3/4î of the wood. To minimize borate leaching, apply a water resistant sealer AFTER THE SURFACE IS DRY TO THE TOUCH - in low temperature and high humidity locations this may take 1-4 weeks.
