    Default Cutek wood preservative

    Hi all. Just researching my decking oil and have decided on Cutek cd50. But I have just seen a new product to pre treat the timber Cutek Wood preservative. Has anyone used this product. Is it worth the time and effort of using it. Any advise appreciated as always. Cheers

    No. It's just called wood preservative and on the brochure I was sent its labeled as a new product. It's says it's a pre treatment. I was trying to copy the image into my reply but it would let me sorry.

    The tin with the Green Label is the "low voc" product and has been around for a long time. I think you mean the silver label?


    Cutek Wood Preservative.

    You use it instead of CD50 or Extreme. It is Cutek's new flagship product and is the best thing to use in high mould / rot or termite prone areas.

    It's the only tintable wood preservative product in Australia. To have the approval to be called a "preservative" in Australia the product needs to go through several years of testing.

    One of the tests they do is to take it up to Darwin to the Man eating termite mounds and throw timber in and time it.
    Uncoated Spotted Gum only lasted 126 seconds before being eaten through.
    With a competitors product applied, it lasted 25 minutes.
    With 2 coats of Cutek Wood Preservative, it lasted 79 minutes!!

    When applying, use it on all four sides including end grain. The only thing it doesn't out perfom every other Cutek product on is colour retention, but you can always use Cutek Extreme on top to lock in the colour.

    For pricing information, see here: https://www.demak.com.au/brands/cutek/

    If that’s the test, could you not just add broccoli to it?
