(Treatment with Copper, Chrome and Boron).
Mix the chemicals in proportion with water. Our Procedure:
  1. Cut a few centimetres off both ends of the culm
  2. Attach the basal ends of the culms to the treatment pipes. Ensure they are tightly secured using metallic clamps or other devices.
  3. Fill the tank with preservative solution to about two-thirds full.
  4. Tighten the cap and check that all other joints are tightly sealed.
  5. Bleed all air out of the system
  6. Develop a pressure of 1.0 to 1.4 Kg/cm2 in the tank
  7. Open the valves to start the preservation process
  8. Regularly check the concentration of the preservative flowing out of the end of the culms. When it reaches, or is close to, the initial concentration, preservation is complete and the procedure can be stopped.
  9. Time for the Treatment 48 Hrs to 72 Hrs.
  10. At one slot 800 to 900 Pieces will accommodate for treatment. (This Qty may vary depending upon the size and weight of the Pole).
  11. Clean / Wash the chamber properly .
This is the best procedure to make the Poles totally Free from Termite/Weevil Attack. Post Treatment:
Let the water to evaporate from the Poles. Remove the Chemicals from the Poles. Poles to dry completely under the cover having good ventilation, avoid direct and scorching sun which may crack the Bamboo.

GENERAL Treatment Procedure:

Soaking Bamboo in water for at least 4-6 weeks to leach out starch. This process protect the Bamboo from insects.
Treatment with Boric Acid and Borax which results in the formation of Disodium Octaborate, easily Soluble with plain clean water. This is very effective against Borers, Termites and Fungi (except decay fungi). CCB treatment is the special and the best treatment in this case. We prefer CCB Treatment.


CCB is approved by American wood preservers association and confirms to IS 10013-Part III (1981).
Our wood preservative CCB type is tested by National Test House, Kolkata
CCB is fix type water borne wood preservative which provides fine protection to various wood damaging insects and factors. CCB is used in vacuum pressure method for best results.
CCB is very effective against wood borers, fungi, decay, marine orgasms and termites and protects wood for a long time which is highly exposed and is in ground contact.
CCB is safe to human being.
CCB is suited for exterior use where as Boric Acid treatment is suitable only for interior use. Due to its high leachability boric acid retains the natural color of the wood/bamboo where as CCB gives an undesirable greenish yellow color to the wood/bamboo.
The preservation is generally carried out by impregnation under pressure and vacum in cylindrical chambers. In vacuum pressure process the timber is subjected to an initial vacuum followed by pressure treatment and a final vacuum. It is ideal for deeping process also.

Why CCB:

Broad spectrum activity. Low mammalian toxicity. Cost effective Easy to analyze and to determine penetration. Slows photo degradation by U.V. radiation and water. Fungistastic and fungicidal. Prevents fungal spore germination.
Reacts with many of the components on the fungal cell walls and within fungal cell walls. Inhibilition of extracellular enzymes responsible for the destruction of lignocellulosic wood components.
We are giving guarantee and assurance that with CCB treatment Quality of Bamboo is totally control from Termite and Fungi and it is good. The use and handling of the product is beyond our control. We are responsible only in consistant Quality.


It takes some care and attention on the part of the user to keep it in good shape.
A word about fine tips. The tips on my rods are finer than on many other bamboo rods. People are under the impression that they are therefore very delicate and can break easily when fishing. This is not always the case. When a rod is properly used in casting and fishing, the stress on the tip is immediately transferred down the rod towards the butt. These finer tips, will, however, break more easily if abused. Any pressure put on a fine tip at an acute angle will over-stress that tip. Do not pull line off the reel while pointing the rod away from you, and be sure when handling a fish that there is no pressure from the line coming off the tip at an acute angle. A tip can also break if it hits a tree or gravel when held out in front while walking. To be Handled properly, even the finest of tips should last for the life of the rod which should be generations.

Bamboo Rods to be maintained very carefully.
Better not to raise the rod high with the large fish, keep your handle angle at about 45 degrees or less. When the tip of the rod is raised too high, the weaker tip section bears too much of the load and can easily break.

Wipe it clean with a cloth before taking it down so NOT to jam dirt into the joint, rinse rod with freshwater after using it in saltwater as soon as you can.

If you seal up the damp or sordid fishing rod, the moisture will possibly cause the bubbling or scaling off of lacquer. To prevent this, always rub off the moisture on fishing rod and keep it in a ventilated place. Never store a rod in its tube. Humidity can cause the moisture.

Before Storing the Poles always rub off the moisture, salt and dirt before storage.

Clean the Rods by Soft cloth dipped with little soap water, soft towel, and dry it completely. Avoid harder material for cleaning the Rods


Mold, Fungi on Bamboo is very common. This is due to Carbohydrate, Oxygen, Moisture Content and Temperature. It is mainly in case of Green immature Bamboo Or due to gloomy atmosphere Or during Transportation.

Remove mold, white spores and mildew with a soft brush and clean up the area with a clean cloth. Then use lemon Oil, Vinegar or acetic acid.
