Hyne Tim­ber’s T3Green Plus: a leader in preser­va­tive treat­ment

Australasian Timber - - NEWS -

FOR OVER a hun­dred years, fos­sil fuel based preser­va­tives (LOSP) have been used to treat tim­ber, so, like all other un­sus­tain­able prod­ucts, is it time for change?

One of the long­est stand­ing tim­ber com­pa­nies in Aus­tralia, Hyne Tim­ber, is known within the in­dus­try for lead­ing in­no­va­tion and their new T3 Green Plus treat­ment is fol­low­ing suit!

Im­me­di­ately fol­low­ing its launch at the start of the year, T3 Green Plus is gen­er­at­ing sig­nif­i­cant in­ter­est with new cus­tomers and cre­at­ing some fun along the way with an en­ter­tain­ing mar­ket­ing video.

Fol­low­ing ex­tended re­search and de­vel­op­ment, T3 Green Plus is proven and guar­an­teed like all other Hyne Tim­ber treat­ments. In other words, it ex­ceeds the Aus­tralian Stan­dards, has a com­pre­hen­sive man­u­fac­turer backed per­for­mance guar­an­tee and is one of only a hand­ful of Aus­tralian tim­ber treat­ments to achieve in­de­pen­dent CodeMark cer­ti­fi­ca­tion.

So what’s so spe­cial about T3 Green Plus? It’s rev­o­lu­tion­ary be­cause it’s a new gen­er­a­tion H3 treat­ment that’s suit­able for both in­ter­nal and ex­ter­nal, above ground projects.

Most sig­nif­i­cantly, the T3 Green Plus treat­ment emits no volatile or­ganic com­pounds (VOC’s), which sets it above and be­yond other H3 treat­ments and ren­ders it safe for both in­door wall fram­ing where mois­ture or hu­mid­ity is a con­cern (bath­rooms, kitchens and laun­dries), as well as chil­dren’s play­grounds and other out­door struc­tural projects.

So, with­out giv­ing away any se­cret for­mu­las, Hyne Tim­ber’s Mar­ket­ing Man­ager, Jeremy Mead is feel­ing up­beat about this in­no­va­tion,

“We were given a solid chal­lenge by our cus­tomer base and the tradies who use the prod­uct.

“Put sim­ply, we needed the petro­chem­i­cal smell and VOC emis­sions gone from our tim­ber.

“Ini­tially we looked at ways to mask or elim­i­nate the smell as this seemed the eas­i­est course of ac­tion.

“How­ever, the more we worked on this, the more we re­alised that to fully ad­dress the health and en­vi­ron­men­tal risks - we needed to get rid of the hy­dro­car­bon ‘car­rier’ com­pletely. Es­sen­tially, we had to be more so­lu­tion fo­cused with our ap­proach and move with the global treat­ment trend,” Mr Mead said.

In­no­va­tion re­lates to new and im­proved meth­ods and Hyne Tim­ber recog­nises this in their T3 Green Plus prod­uct brochure which starts with:

They’ll tell you it can’t be done. That a safe, wa­ter-based treat­ment can’t pro­tect tim­ber to a level that will with­stand the great Aus­tralian out­doors. That what we’re claim­ing is im­pos­si­ble. But then again, ev­ery­thing is tech­ni­cally “im­pos­si­ble” – un­til it’s done.

Their treat­ment pro­cesses in­clude daily lab­o­ra­tory test­ing and anal­y­sis us­ing highly ad­vanced meth­ods for ver­i­fi­ca­tion of preser­va­tive lev­els and qual­ity in both the so­lu­tion and tim­ber sam­ples.

The T3 Green Plus H3 treat­ment pen­e­trates both sap­wood and dif­fi­cult to treat heart­wood fi­bres, pro­vid­ing su­pe­rior pro­tec­tion in ex­cess of Aus­tralian Stan­dards and tim­ber in­dus­try con­ven­tions.

Mod­i­fi­ca­tions were made to their Tum­barumba plant in or­der to suc­cess­fully in­tro­duce this new treat­ment to the mar­ket in­clud­ing equip­ment, mix­ing, dos­ing and stor­age fa­cil­i­ties plus the re­quire­ment to train em­ploy­ees with the new treat­ment process.

It is proven pro­tec­tion against the most ag­gres­sive ter­mites as well as se­vere trop­i­cal de­cay and rot.

With a more nat­u­ral colour and fin­ish, it has su­pe­rior aes­thetic qual­i­ties once stained or painted.

“It’s about ex­ceed­ing cus­tomer ex­pec­ta­tions, ex­ceed­ing health and en­vi­ron­men­tal obli­ga­tions while find­ing so­lu­tions that are proven and guar­an­teed,” said Mr Mead.
