Cutting & Joining
When cutting always cut through the front to help eliminate fibre tear and when joining Pinetrim H3 L.O.S.P Raw we recommend mitre cuts be used and the joint glued. It is desirable that the cross-sections are as uniformed as possible to prevent exposure. For all outside surfaces exposed by cutting after treatment, an appropriate re-sealing/treatment product should be applied.
Some metal fasteners in contact with H3 treated pine may exhibit a propensity to corrode. For longevity of fixings in external applications hot dipped galvanized steel or stainless fixings are recommended (Check with your local building authority for class of fixing).
Before painting Pinetrim H3 Raw must be dry and clear of dirt or oil residue. Fill any defects (nail holes, cuts etc) lightly sand and apply minimum 3 coats of external grade paint. (Please check paint manufacturer’s recommendations). For best results finish painting within 30 days of installation (if weathered over 30 days re-priming may be required).Learn more

Pinetrim H3 L.O.S.P Raw biologically treated pine has been impregnated with a chemical solution containing two components; fungicide and insecticide. Preservatives are forced deeply into the timber, treating the pine to give long term resistance to decay, insects and other wood destroying organisms. This effective and lasting protection of pine enables it to be used in many applications outliving untreated and naturally durable timbers in exposed conditions.Learn more
