About This Product

PenaShield is a ready-to-use formula that can be sprayed or brushed on raw wood. It is a unique patented preservative that penetrates the wood, delivering long-lasting protection. PenaShield will not stain or discolor wood; and once dry, can be painted or treated with a water sealer, stained or varnished like normal wood. The active ingredient in PenaShield is a borate mineral salt which sets PenaShield apart from competitors in that the mineral salt will not break down over time like other synthetic chemicals. Whenever you're working with wood, whether it's projects or repairs, always use PenaShield to protect the wood.

Highlights

  • Depending on porosity and texture, 1 gal. of PenaShield will treat 150 sq. ft. - 250 sq. ft. of wood
  • For indoor wood, PenaShield will last the life of the wood

Answer This Question

A:  No. It is a clear wood preservative to protect against damage from insects. Pressure treated is its own preservative.

    The ingredients are excellent, so I am anticipating true results for infestation prevention. The application was simple with a pump sprayer. It was recommended to apply to dry and untreated timber, then apply a coat, wait to dry and apply a second coat, then dry and apply a wood sealant. That makes great sense, so I am confident for great decades of future infestation protection.

      Works on drywood termites in CA
      I had an infestation of drywood termites on one wall of my house, where they were tunneling through fir. After removing the severely damaged wood, I drilled diagonally downward several inches into all of the potentially infested studs with a 1/16" jobber bit before soaking all of the old and new wood. I tested the product by directly spraying a removed piece which had an active infestation and it killed the termites within about a week. 2 years late & no sign of re-infestation.
