Viance, LLC Ecolife® treated wood deck

Ecolife® treated wood is the only treated wood with an integrated stabilizer standardized by the American Wood Protection Association.

Ecolife Stabilized Weather-Resistant Wood is an environmentally-advanced wood protection system, utilizing a fully integrated wood preservative with a built-in stabilizer for maximum weathering protection and enhanced performance.

The Ecolife preservative fights the effects of the sun and weather extremes and repels water, minimizes cracking and keeps boards straighter.

Ecolife's active ingredient is DCOI, a non-metallic preservative that protects wood from fungal decay and termites. DCOI is not an EPA Restricted Use Pesticide and is a very effective fungicide.

Ecolife is approved for use in above ground applications that are six inches or more from the ground in certain residential and agricultural uses.

Ecolife is available at Lowe's, 84 Lumber, and at independent lumberyards in the East and Midwest United States. Ecolife may not be available at all locations.

Look for Ecolife or EL2 on the end tag.
