The pH of 10% Nu-Lure + 5% sodium tetraborate was 8.01.
In this work, four wood protection systems were developed based on the dual vacuum-impregnation of wood with combinations of alum and other low-cost chemicals, namely sodium hydroxide, ammonia, magnesium chloride, and sodium tetraborate. The aim of the research was to assess whether dimensional stability and resistance of the treated wood to microbial attack and fire was comparable to that of wood treated with a hydrophobic chromated copper arsenate preservative (CCA-wax).

Borate introduction to the liquor cycle used addition of sodium tetraborate pentahydrate to the black liquor mixing tank initially and then to the green liquor surge tank to obtain a maximum B/Na weight ratio of 0.03.
The coated particles were then buffered at pH 9.0 and stabilized by the sequential addition of sodium tetraborate (50 mmol/L), sodium chloride (150 mmol/L), bovine serum albumin (5 g/L), sodium azide (0.9 g/L), and Tween 20 (2 mL/L).
It also can detect certain salts, such as sodium tetraborate, as evidence of water in the oil that may have flashed off from the heat of the engine, said Wilson.
