Shell-Guard RTU

Borate-Glycol Wood Preservativeshell-guard

Shell-Guard RTU is a ready-to-use borate-based formulation that contains the same active ingredient and glycol carriers that have proven so successful in Shell-Guard Concentrate.

Like Shell-Guard Concentrate, Shell-Guard RTU is colorless, odorless, has a very low level of toxicity to people and pets and is just as effective for preventing wood decay and insect damage to interior and exterior wood members. Shell-Guard RTU is labeled for the control of termites, wood boring beetles, carpenter ants and wood decay fungi.

Since it is ready-to-use, you can pour it right out of the container into your sprayer without the fuss of measuring, mixing and stirring.

Besides its convenience, other advantages to Shell-Guard RTU include its stability and relatively quick drying time. Your logs will be ready to stain within one to three days after a Shell-Guard RTU application.

An application of Shell-Guard RTU is permanent as long as the wood remains protected with Lifeline stains.
