Cobra Rods

Cobra™ Rods are a way to spot treat decay prone areas such as log ends that are already coated with a finish.


Once inserted into damp or wet wood the borate / copper complex in Cobra Rods dissolves spreading the active ingredients into areas surrounding the rod. This eliminates active decay fungi and helps prevent rot for 8 to 10 years.

Cobra Rods are 7/16` in diameter are available in either two or four inch lengths. A 1/2` diameter drill bit is used for installation. The installation holes may be plugged with the accompanying plastic plugs or Energy Seal.

A typical six to eight inch round log end will require one 4” long or two 2” long Cobra Rods inserted within 4 inches of the butt end.

Cobra™ Rods are a trademark of Genics Inc., Spruce Grove, Alberta Canada 


Use a ½” drill bit to drill hole. Drill hole to a depth of at least 3 ¾”. Clean out the hole and insert the Cobra Rod. Insert the plastic plug into the hole.
Using a screw driver twist the plug clockwise. Make sure the top of the plug sets about ¼” below the surface of the wood. Fill the hole with appropriately colored Energy Seal. Smooth with tool or finger. After a few hours the Energy Seal may be stained to match the surrounding area.
