CuGard 20 is an organic solvent-based, ready-for-use biocidal formulation for timber treatment that contains copper naphthenate as the active ingredient. It provides superficial fungicidal and insecticidal protection to exposed untreated timber and stains the wood to a greenish colour. It also affords some water repellency, leach resistance and fixation to the wood structure. After absorption into the timber and subsequent drying, it can be painted over with most organic-based wood coatings.

CuGard 20 / CuGard 20 WR is ideal for treating ends of CCA treated poles after cross-cutting, e.g. thatch roof and lapa poles. Also suitable for treatment and protection of beehives.
