Wood is one of the world's few renewable resources. Softwoods from sustainably managed forests relieve pressure on the world's limited tropical hardwood resource and avoids the use of polluting non-renewable products like steel, concrete and plastics.
However, most softwoods need protection from decay, insects and termites in order to perform to our expectations.
The impra®lit preservative system provides long-term protection from decay, insects and termites, using ingredients with minimum health and environmental hazard.
impra®lit Preserved Wood is wood treated with impra®lit as specified in national and international treatment standards and is a renewable wood product with a low environmental impact.
The preservative penetrates deep into the wood with the help of vacuum and pressure. In this case a vacuum is initially generated in the cell cavities thereby evacuating the air inside them. The cavities are then filled with preservative solution which is forced into the wood under high pressure. For vacuum pressure impregnation we work with different processes depending on the type of wood, environment and end purpose.
