Dip treatment involves immersing the wood in a solution of wood preservative, such as a dip tank or bath. The wood is fully submerged in the solution, allowing it to absorb the preservative. However, dip treatment generally provides surface-level protection compared to pressure treatment. Dip treated wood normally requires additional maintenance and periodic re-application of preservatives to maintain its effectiveness and prolong its lifespan.
The main difference between pressure treated and dip treated wood lies in the approach to applying the preservative treatment.
In the pressure treatment process, the wood is placed in a treatment chamber where a combination of chemicals is forced into the wood under high pressure. This process allows the preservative to penetrate deep into the wood fibres, providing enhanced protection against rot, decay, and insects. Pressure treated wood is known for its long-lasting durability and resistance to outdoor elements.
Summarising, pressure treated wood offers more comprehensive and long-lasting protection due to the deep penetration of preservatives, while dip treated wood provides a more basic level of protection primarily on the surface of the wood. The choice between pressure treated and dip treated wood depends on factors such as available budget, desired longevity, and your specific requirements.
Dip treated sheds are a popular choice for those seeking a solution for their garden storage needs. One of the key advantages of dip treated sheds is their affordability. They are generally more budget-friendly when compared to pressure treated sheds. Despite their lower-cost, dip treated sheds still offer reliable protection for your tools, equipment, and other garden items.
It is important to note that dip treated sheds typically require annual retreatment to maintain their effectiveness, extend their lifespan and to maintain a valid guarantee. This means applying additional preservatives or wood treatments to ensure ongoing protection against moisture penetration, fungi, and insects.
