  • Reduced cracking, warping and twisting due to swelling and weathering cycles. Reduced maintenance.

  • Guaranteed protection against rot, fungal decay, or termite attack. Brighter appearance for a more natural appearance.

  • Building code compliant.

After chemical treatment, wood can then be upgraded to KDAT (kiln-dried after treatment). The process removes excess moisture from the product, adding strength and dimensional stability. With KDAT, the boards are less likely to shrink, cup or warp and they’re much lighter—potentially saving you freight costs and making the installer’s job easier too. Finally, you are also able to paint or stain the wood immediately rather than waiting 30+ days for the boards to properly weather.
