Sunday night I sat and watched the Simpsons, my favorite TV show when I called from my dad. He watched the show Extreme Home Makeover and he noticed that they built the house out of blue timber. He asked me "why is this tree blue?" Confused, I was like "blue timber?" I asked him to see it blue or was it blue and he said it was BLUE, the whole house. Not knowing what he was talking about if I did some research, on this blue tree he talked about, and came across some interesting facts about it.
For starters, the wood is actually called Bluwood. Bluwood is a two-piece wood protection system. The forest has a film on it that helps prevent the swimmer from entering the wood and also protects against fungi and wood-eating insects.
Possible timber can be treated. The film can be applied to all types of timber from a 2 × 4 to OSB (oriented board). That means downstairs, crushing and even rays can make this movie turn on. It comes to the workplace that is pre-treated and can be sawn, nailed and painted. Since the wood is pre-treated, it also protects the timber while it is outside the elements while the house is being built unprotected (up to 6 months).
Termites. This timber uses an insecticidal and a fungicidal that prevents termites and fungi from attacking the wood and destroying its structural properties. The film attaches to the fibers that the termites like to eat, preventing them from eating it.
System. The first part of the two-part system is the vapor barrier. The wood is filled in a film that creates a vapor barrier on the wood. This vapor barrier controls the absorption properties of the wood, which means it does not absorb moisture, but I also allow the wood to breathe and let the moisturizer in it escape. Kind of like a Tyvek Home Wrap. The second part of the system is a proven DOT insecticide and fungicide.
How it works. The two-part system is applied to all six sides of the timber as they call the infusion process. When the infusion process is over, it is prevented that any feed is absorbed into the wood, but allows the humidifier to escape from the wood. Then the "infusion constituents" continue to migrate under the wooden surface over time, so in theory the trees are treated. I never used the wood so I don't really know. I guess when you cut the wood it is still protected. Through this process, the ingredients bind to the wood at the cellular level
Less dome and curvature. Because the wood has this vapor barrier on it, the film regulates the rate at which the humidifier in the wood escapes. Prevent the wood from dome, cleavage and / or curvature, which we more often today than before due to the quick milling process. So no more going to a large home improvement store and moving through a bar of 2 × 4s to find the 2 you need straight.
