Sylvan Ply’s proprietary ATBS (Anti-Termite Borer Solution) is known for its durability and quality. Our plywood is chemically treated during the production process which helps repel termites and borer. The aim behind this is to keep your furniture and home protected from all kinds of disruptive elements.
Termites and How They Pose A Threat To Your Furniture
As rightly named “Silent Destroyers”, termites are insect species that have wreaked havoc in homes and spaces from time immemorial. While there are multiple types of termites, subterranean termites cause the most damage. They usually live on forage underneath structures, and as they crawl up, they end up infesting timber and plywood alike. It is quite a task to keep termites and their growing numbers in check because they reproduce considerably faster than ants and other similar species. The cellulose in the wood is what termites target at large. Termites have large colonies, with a whopping one million in each colony. Termites may not look like they can cause a lot of damage, but they can infest an entire house and may even cause losses higher than a house fire if the statistics are totalled. Keep an eye out for windows and door frames that feel swollen, and are becoming difficult to function. This might indicate that there is a termite infestation in your house.
Anti Termite Borer Solution and How It Works?
Unprotected plywood or wooden structures can be at high risk if a termite infestation occurs. Once the termites start eating your furniture from the inside out, only early detection can save you. Sylvan’s ATBS plywood is chemically treated during the production process to completely eliminate the risk of termite and borer infestation.
Extractions from timber are treated to create an eco-friendly compound, which can, in turn, repel termites and borers. Speaking of defence against termites and borer, our in-house PowerSeal Adhesive acts as an additional barrier and provides an absolute level of protection, warding away everything deadly. Used in the entire procedure during the manufacturing process, each sheet is treated with the same adhesive, hence ensuring top-notch plywood for you.
In case of a termite attack, our defensive compound mixed with the plywood acts as a shield against the termites, preventing the infestation of your furniture or floors. After a certain period of time, the protective feature of Sylvan Ply’s ATBS technology results in the death of these termites.
