Timber Defence is a cost effective fire retardant solution for unsealed timber that complies to Australian building standards.
Fire Defender Timber Defence has been specially developed to passively impregnate raw and unsealed timber in a multitude of situations creating a fire retardant treatment that when dry, provides a sealed surface suitable for a natural timber look, or for staining or treating with top coat finish.
Timber Defence was developed here in Australia as a fire retardant for timber. This product has been designed to limit the treated substrates ability to become part of the fuel source of a fire, therefore extending the safe exit time from a fire.

The product is available in 1, 5 & 20 litre bottles, 205 litre drum and 1000 litre pallet based bulkibox.
