Koppers Performance Chemicals treatment technologies cover a broad range of timber treatment requirements, from domestic to agricultural uses, wharfs and utility poles and many more.

In Australia, treated timber is generally defined by its end use and the expected severity of its weather exposure and /or exposure to rot, fungi and insect pests such as termites. The Australian Standard for the Specification of Timber Treatment defines this by assigning Hazard Classes. This Hazard Class system should be used by specifiers or those purchasing timber to ensure that you are buying preservative treated timber products that will perform. The animated treatment guide, may assist with the specification of preservative treated timber used around the home.
