Micon Thatchbor FR is a one step treatment product now available to potential thatch owners who require both the benefits of a biological preservative as well as fire retardancy protection.
Micon Thatchbor FR is a dual purpose aqueous chemical system which contains both a fire retardant and borate based biological preservative. Boron compounds for preservation 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 absorption of chemical products into the stem. The chemical composition of Micon Thatchbor FR has been specially developed for impregnation which facilitates penetration right into the heart of the grass stem thus providing full treatment of the grass.
The product provide the perfect protection for thatch roofs. Now a total "system", monitored by both the SABS and the CSIR, can be specified in order to fulfil the requirements of the CSIR's "Guidelines for Good Thatching Practice".
