Fisher’s Timber Treatment for superior timber preservation


Providing protection to the core with superior treatment technologies across a range of wood species using the TRU-CORE® Process

Much of Australia has been built with timber supplied by Fisher’s Timber Treatment. Our superior wood treatment process has been servicing sawmills and wholesalers with superior wood products engineered for many uses, for over 60 years.

Fisher’s Timber Treatment has led the way in timber-treated innovation by ensuring surface to core protection for longevity, strength and utmost protection.

Versatility in applications

Treated for use across multiple applications. Ideal for building, architecture and specifiers, wholesale and more.

An environmentally safe alternative

The TRU-CORE® timber treatment solution is water-based for safe use and peace of mind. The solution does not contain VOC’s or many other harmful chemicals.

Treatment protection for a variety of species

Using the TRU-CORE® Process, Fisher’s are able to treat common species such as Radiata Pine, Victorian Ash, Red & White Baltic Pine and Douglas Fir/Oregon.

Total core protection

The TRU-CORE® Process is a chemically-based process for rapidly delivering globally accepted wood preservatives and insecticides deep into the wood’s core.

  • 5. Final vacuum & weighing
Upon reciept of the timber by the client, the timber is inspected for damage, measured and weighed. The client is consulted as to the intended use of the treated timber and the appropriate solution required. Fisher's use the TRU-CORE Wood for Life® Process, a water-based treatment that offers the highest wood preservation technology for Australia's harsh climate. Solutions include H2 TRU-CORE Red® (Permethrin), H3 Azole Clear Timbertreat™A or H3 Azole Green Timbertreat™A to ensure the highest treatment for its inteded use, be it above-ground, for construction or domestic structures.
The Fisher's Timber Treatment process begins with the untreated wood being inserted into the treatment cylinder. In this step, the air inside the cylinder is removed by the vacuum pump. The vacuum pressure process is used to treat timber to meet the AS1604.
Once the air has been vacuumed from the cylinder, the treatment solution can be transferred into the chamber. The timber is treated using the TRU-CORE Wood for Life® solution.
The TRU-CORE® solution is a water-based formulation and is used to fully penetrate the wood to the core, including glue lines. The solution is forced deep into the wood using the pressurized force. This will ensure no termite attacks, nor borers, and the flexibility to manufacture and manipulate the wood without risking decay or insect attack, as there is no exposed timber that is untreated, at any point.
Once the treatment solution has ben delivered and the pressure cycle is complete, the remaining timber treatment solutions will be transferred back to its storage tank and a final vacuum will begin. Once the vacuum is complete, the treated timber will be removed and weighed to ensure satisfactory uptake of the solution, and the process concludes.

Australian Sustainable Hardwoods Pty Ltd (ASH) are a customer of Fishers Timber Preservation since 2001 when Fishers became the only company in Australia to be able to treat hardwoods to H2. This innovation continued with the introduction of the water based TRU-CORE technology rather than the old solvent based treatment in 2013 and the subsequent ability to clear treat ASH appearance hardwoods to H3. This development created a new market for ASH, the IRONASH range, enabling inside timber to perfectly match outside timber. ASH has now entered to MASSLAM market and is working with Fishers to enable the H3 treatment of these huge columns and beams. ASH send timber to Fishers Timber Preservation every week for treatment. The service provided is excellent including labelling to Australian Standards and the presentation of rewrapped packs. ASH is informed of when orders are ready. This crucial as ASH will time a drop off and pick up or even a pick up to go directly to the market. ASH can do this with confidence. Vince Hurley, CEO
