Micon Thatchbor is a dual purpose aqueous chemical system which contains both a fire retardant and a borate-based biological preservative. Boron compounds for preservative are more widely preferred by international environmentalists. In addition, borates are known fire retardants and because of synergism between the preservative and fire retardant active ingredients, excellent fire retardancy is obtained.
Micon thatchbor FR is a once-off impregnation process that ensures full protection throughout the full depth of the thatch roof. An innovative aspect of Thatchbor is the treatment process. The natural wax layer on the surface of grass prevents the absorbtion of chemical products into the stem. The chemical composition of Micon Thatchbor FR has been specially deveoped for impregnation which facilitates penetration right into the heart of the grass stem thus providing full treatment of the grass. Micon Thatchbor is the perfect partner for Flambor - a dual purpose timber treatment product - the two products provide the perfect protection combination for thatch roofs and timber structures. Now a total "system", monitored by both the SABS and the CSIR, can be specified in order to fulfill the requirements of the CSIR's "Guidelines for Good Thatching Practice".
The Micon Thatchbor FR active ingredients are based on compounds of low mammalian toxicity and treated thatch is safe to handle, process and dispose of. Micon Thatchbor FR does not contain heavy metals and poses no persistent environmental pollution threats.
