LOSP H3.1 TREATMENT:

Light Organic Solvent Preservative (LOSP) treatment of radiata pine is an excellent solution for low to moderate hazard timber applications. It is a clear preservative pressure-treatment that maintains the appearance of the wood and doesn't swell it, meaning that it can be applied to machined wood. The active preservation agents are Propiconazole and Tebuconazole and it contains a fungicide. The active insecticide is generally permethrin. The process makes for a resilient pine product that can be used in interior linings, wall framings, roof framing, cladding, fascias and wall framing. Our state-of-the-art plant machinery can treat lengths up to 13.9m in length, twice the size of conventional treatment technology.

 

LVL TREATMENT:

North Sawn Lumber can help bring the moderate to high hazard exterior protection to the superb structural qualities of Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL).  Our unique treatment process enables us to treat LVL lumber.  Combined with our approval under the Assure Quality quality assessment program we are now the only approved Azol treatment provider for New Zealand’s biggest LVL manufacturer.
