This animation from Koppers® explains the pressure treating process typically used to treat wood with preservatives for residential, agricultural and commercial uses. Pressure treating wood products is an effective and proven way to protect it from rot, fungal decay, and termite attack. Treated wood can be used in most indoor and outdoor applications where the wood needs to be protected. It is a great choice for decks, fences, walkways, retaining walls, fresh water boat docks and other outdoor projects.
This video is meant to provide a general overview of the wood treating process. It is not meant to provide actual instruction, technical data, retention standards, penetration requirements, or quality control guidelines.
