Cobra™ CuB Liquid – Performance Summary

Genicshas conducted research and testing with the following research institutions:

Internaland Independent studies completed third-party research institutions concludethat the combination of copper and boron in the Cobra™ CuB Liquid 2-20formulation is effective at preserving and controlling against wood againstdecay, fungi, molds, insects, ants, and termites.

Boronis highly effective against basidiomycetes, insects, and termites.
Copperis highly effective against soft-rot fungi or ascomycetes.

Active Ingredient Bio-Availability

Cobra™ CuB 2-20 provides the highest concentration of active ingredients to deliver the highest volume of net copper and boron per oz/ml of solution. The active ingredients are solubilized into a homogenous solution that provides the highest diffusablity of copper and boron to increase the rate of diffusion and reduce the leachability of the actives. The rate of uptake is enhanced due to the homogeneity of the solution as it behaves as water would and, therefore, it is absorbed within the wood fibers as such.
