- Dipping is general performed in suitable waterproof baths. When using continuous dipping lines, each piece of wood is separately immersed to ensure that the entire surface of the timber element is soaked. Automatic immersion time is usually a few seconds and depends on how the line speed is configured.
- When using traditional baths for dipping, timber elements are arranged in packs, which are submerged them below the surface of the preservative using a hydraulic arm. Late are used to separate each layer of the timber in the pack to ensure that each element in the pack is soaked on all sides, thus making sure that the entire wood surface is soaked in a uniform manner. Soaking time is usually several tens of minutes. Extended soaking - more than 24 hours - ensures medium-deep protection, with a penetration depth of up to 3mm.
- If timber elements are cut shorter following impregnation, the incision surface must also be painted or sprayed with the impregnating agent. We recommend regularly cleaning the solution baths to remove sawdust debris, which may affect the quality of the solution applied.
