Greenfields use the most widely non-arsenic, non-chromium water based wood preservative in the world.
Timber is one of the world’s few renewable resources. Softwoods from sustainable plantations relieve pressure of the world’s tropical hardwood resource, and avoids the use of polluting, non-renewable products like steel, concrete and plastics. However, softwoods need protection from decay and insects, in order to perform to our expectations. The preservative system used provides long-term protection from decay and insects, using ingredients with minimum health and environmental impact.
The water-based wood preservative is applied by vacuum pressure, when impregnated into wood the chemical components become fixed within the wood structure. The treated wood has excellent weathering properties and gives long term protection against decay and insect attack as shown by numerous evaluation tests.
The preservative has been approved to European Standards.
