TANALITH pressure treated timber is timber which has been impregnated with TANALITH wood preservative under controlled conditions in a vacuum pressure timber impregnation plant.
Wood is possibly the most versatile product nature has to offer. However, it is also vulnerable to the effects of the weather, wood decay and insect attack. Tanalith® E preservative treatment extends the service life of your wood and preserves its natural appearance with a choice of colour and water repellent additive options. Wood treated with Tanalith® E is suited to both above-ground and in-ground applications across a wide range of end uses.
TANALITH is a water based wood preservative that contains copper and proven organic biocides. When impregnated into the timber the preservative components bond with the wood structure and cannot easily be removed.
TANALITH pressure treated timber has a long term protection against fungal and insect attack, including termites, for both in and out of ground contact, interior and exterior applications when treated to the correct end use specification.
TANALITH pressure treated timber has an initial natural green colouration. Upon external exposure, the green colour slowly weathers to a warm, honey brown and in the longer term becomes a natural silver grey. This weathering process does not indicate any loss of preservative protection. TANALITH pressure treated timber is also available with built-in brown colour (TANATONE).
TANATONE treated timber has a brown colouration as opposed to the traditional TANALITH green. It is ideal for rough sawn timber fencing and landscaping applications. Recommendations provided for TANALITH pressure treated timber apply equally to TANATONE pressure treated timber, unless otherwise stated.
Just like our other products, Tanalith® E has been tried, tested and proven to effectively extend the service life of your wood and let you enjoy it for longer.
