Blue Sill℠ borate-treated lumber from Solidwood Forest LTD. is treated with Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate (DOT). Borates are natural minerals that have been proven effective in protecting wood. When used as recommended, Blue Sill℠ treated products are safe around people and pets – but deadly to termites, many other wood-destroying insects, and fungal decay. The borates interfere with a termite’s metabolic processes, effectively killing the termite.
    Products pressure treated with borates are easily recognized by their blue tint. Blue Sill℠ treated material is given an extra dose of this blue tint to increase its yard life and makes it easy for building inspectors to identify the products as borate treated.
