LifeWood® (Micronized Copper Azole) brand treated wood products use the MicroPro® technology, which is a revolutionary way to pressure treat wood for decks, fences, landscaping, and general construction uses. MicroPro technology offers many benefits, including significantly improved corrosion performance. MicroPro/LifeWood pressure treated wood with the MicroPro technology exhibits corrosion rates on metal products similar to CCA pressure treated wood and untreated wood.
The NatureWood® lumber preservative is a waterborne, alkaline copper quaternary preservative system developed to provide long-term protection of wood exposed in exterior applications. The NatureWood® system is based on the well-established effectiveness of copper combined with an organic quaternary compound and is applied to wood by pressure treatment. NatureWood® treated wood products are available for above ground, ground contact and fresh water contact applications for projects such as decks, fences and landscaping.
Termites, decay fungi and other wood destroying organisms cause billions of dollars in damage to homes every year. However, wood structural systems built with Advance Guard® Borate Pressure Treated Wood Products have long-term protection that is a step in quality construction. Builders can depend on Advance Guard products to set them apart from their competitors and to provide to their customers what pre-existing homes can never provide–long lasting, built-in protection against termites, including Formosan termites, fungal decay and many other wood destroying organisms. An additional benefit is that walls built with borate pressure treated wood limit populations of cockroaches and ants that may live in the wall systems.
