WESTMINSTER’S FULL LINE OF TREATED PRODUCTS INCLUDES:
WOLMANIZED HEAVY DUTY™ WOOD [CCA]
agricultural, marine, plywood, highway and utility poles
Wolmanized® Heavy Duty™ Wood is pressure treated with CCA, a mixture of oxides of copper, chromium and arsenate, to provide protection from termites and fungal decay in conditions and applications that are in contact with water, soil, concrete or masonry, subject to periodic wetting or exposure to moisture and high humidity. When used as recommended, CCA-treated wood is harmless to people, plants, and animals while its use provides environmental benefits as well as decades of service.
WOLMANIZED® RESIDENTIAL OUTDOOR® WOOD [CA-B]
decking, railing, playgrounds, landscape and recreational areas
Wolmanized® Residential Outdoor® Wood provides the natural beauty of wood, can be painted or stained and is treated to withstand termites and fungal decay for decades. It is more economical than cedar or durable grades of redwood and plastic composites and is made from renewable resources, reducing demands on our forests. Wolmanized® treatment is accepted in Canada and most countries worldwide for residential use. Wolmanized® wood products are manufactured by Arch Wood Protection / Treatment Technologies, the premier producers of wood treating chemicals in North and South America.
high rise and condominium developments, cedar paneling, dimension lumber and plywood
D-Blaze is Fire Retardant Treated Wood (FRTW) suited for fire-rated wall assemblies and interior applications where fire retardant construction materials are specified or required by building codes. D-Blaze treated lumber and plywood is highly effective in controlling the spread of flame and smoke development caused by fire.
TIMBERSAVER® 40 [BORATE]
TimberSaver® PT and 40 lumber and plywood products are pressure treated with Disodium Octoborate Tetrahydrate (DOT), a borate-based preservative that protects against Formosan, additional termite species and fungal decay in dry interior applications. TimberSaver® 40 provides added protection with a highly effective organic termiticide.
