Viance’s line of wood treatment solutions are American Wood Protection Association (AWPA) standardized preservatives for residential, commercial, agricultural and industrial applications.
Our formulations include Ecolife® with DCOI, an innovative, environmentally-advanced, non-metallic preservative and stabilizer system. For use in applications six inches or more off the ground, Ecolife offers the natural beauty of real wood combined with advances in weathering protection and fastener performance. This proprietary formula saves contractors and homeowners from having to seal their decks for up to three years after installation.
UltraPole® NXT and crossarms are treated with an oil-borne preservative developed by Viance, with the active ingredient DCOI. DCOI is not a Restricted Use Pesticide and is not persistent in soil. An environmentally advanced formulation, UltraPole NXT and crossarms with DCOI use less energy, fossil fuels, and water to produce; with lower ecotoxicity than other materials used in poles. Easy to climb, UltraPole NXT is also low to no odor and has a wider range of disposal options at the end of life.
The Preserve® family of products provide exceptional protection for exterior wood against decay and termites and remains the most dependable and proven wood preservative used around the world for a variety of residential and commercial applications. Preserve® is backed by more than 20 years of field testing and use and is available with CA-C, CA-B, and Preserve Plus. Preserve Plus combines CA-C with built-in water repellent protection that is pressure-treated deep into the heart of the wood.
D-Blaze® fire retardant treated wood (FRTW) is suitable for interior applications where fire retardant construction materials are specified by building codes. D-Blaze® treated lumber and plywood received an FR-S listing from Underwriters Laboratories® (UL) and has a very low smoke rating. D-Blaze was the first FRTW product to offer a 50-year limited warranty.
TimberSaver® PT lumber and plywood are protected from termites with Disodium Octaborate Tetrahydrate (DOT). TimberSaver® 40 combines DOT with a highly effective termiticide to provide improved protection against all termite species.
