How long does Pro-Set last?
Pro-Set is designed to last at least 50 years in service.
Is Pro-Set safe after it has cured?
After Pro-Set has hardened it is nonreactive. No contamination takes place and it is neutral to the environment and safe to living organisms.
Can Pro-Set be used in acidic soil?
Yes. Pro-Set is not sensitive to particularly acidic or alkaline soils.
What temperature range can I use Pro-Set in?
Pro-Set is a chemical compound, and as with most chemical products, its efficiency depends on temperature. It affects the speed as well as the volume of the final footing:
• in higher temperatures, Pro-Set will grow faster and can create more volume than specified in technical data sheets
• in lower temperatures, Pro-Set will grow slower and can generate less volume than specified in technical data sheets
No matter the outside temperature, 2 hours before using Pro-Set, it should be stored at room temperature [between 20 and 25 deg. C] to achieve the best results.
What is Pro-Set’s environmental impact?
Producing one pack of Pro-Set produces approximately 3 KG of CO2.
In comparison, concrete post-mix produces approximately 8 KG per CO2 for two bags – the equivalent post-fixing capacity to Pro-Set.
When looking at the CO2 transport costs on the environment, Pro-Set is far more environmentally friendly due to it weighing 97% less than concrete.

Why do preservative treated posts not last as long as they used to?
Can I use Postsaver Pro-Sleeves with preservative-treated fence posts?
Yes, to enable our 20-year guarantee we require you to use Postsaver Pro-Sleeves on UC4 (Use-Class 4) preservative treated posts. Postsaver’s Pro-Sleeve’s dual-layer air and watertight seal not only locks moisture, fungi, and oxygen out but also locks preservatives in.
How does Postsaver Pro-Sleeve's 20-year guarantee work?
So long as the Pro-Sleeve is correctly applied to a use class four post (UC4), then we automatically guarantee the post for 20 years. In the event of a failure, our guarantee covers the cost of a replacement post and Pro-Sleeve.
We are a family-run business that believes in treating customers fairly and honoring our guarantee in all valid claims.
Can moisture enter at the top of the Pro-Sleeve and travel downwards?
No, the wind and the sun will dry the post before the moisture has a chance to enter the ground-line section of the post. This combined with Postsaver Pro-Sleeve’s air and watertight seal excluding the other factors required for decay; oxygen & fungi – means that rot cannot occur.
Can water travel up from the bottom of the post inside the Pro-Sleeve?
No, due to Postsaver Pro-Sleeves creating an air and watertight seal to the posts surface it dramatically lowers the moisture entry point to the bottom of the sleeve. With this lowered moisture entry point the moisture can’t track far enough up inside the sleeve to reach the critical first 6 inches or 15 cm below ground.

Postsaver Pro-Sleeves: Technical Questions
Are Postsaver Pro-Sleeves patented?
Yes, Postsaver Pro-Sleeves are patented.
Do Postsaver Pro-Sleeves prevent termite attack?
On an independent test in which wooden blocks were encapsulated with sleeve material, termite attack did not occur.
In some countries with certain termite species, we have been told it is sufficient to only apply a sleeve to the ground-line section of the post as the termites generally live in the upper part of the ground. If they cannot detect wood, they will not burrow down to attack the wood deeper in the ground. In other countries, the whole of the in-ground section of the post has to be encapsulated.
Does Pro-Sleeves need a licence or biocidal approval to be used?
No. Pro-sleeves are non-toxic and do not require any approvals, certification or import licences for use.
What quality control is used when making Pro-Sleeves?
We are an ISO 9001 certified manufacturer. All Pro-Sleeves are rigorously checked against a set of tight quality standards including size, weight, film thickness, softening point, shrink ratios, and print quality.
Over what temperature range can Pro-Sleeves be used?
The storage temperature range is 0C to 40C. Sleeves must not be stored in direct sunlight, and we recommend that Pro-Sleeves are applied to posts out of direct sunlight.
