Use of Fly Ash to Reduce Boron Leaching in Wood

AgCenter scientists have discovered a new ash-based wood treatment to reduce water penetration and movement in wood and prevent boron leaching. This invention adds small fillings into the void spaces in wood, trapping the boron inside the wood and keeping wood-degrading organisms out of it. Unlike many treatments, this can be used with wood for exterior construction like decking and fencing.
