WHAT IS PRESERVE?

Preserve® is a family of fully-dissolved copper-based wood preservative solutions for exterior wood products that provides long-term protection from fungal decay and termite attack for a wide variety of residential, commercial and agricultural construction projects including above-ground, ground contact, fresh-water immersion, and salt-water splash applications. Preserve ACQ and Preserve CA use recycled copper, reducing the carbon footprint of its manufacture. Copper has been used for centuries to control fungi, and is highly effective against most forms of fungi that feed on wood. The fully-dissolved copper is very effective in penetrating the cells in the wood fiber during the pressure-treatment process, providing for optimum long-term protection.

Viance offers two types of treatment solutions:

– (Alkaline copper quaternary – ACQ) is a formulation made of soluble copper and a quaternary compound. The soluble copper provides most of the protection to the wood, and the co-biocides complete the formulation by adding the protection against copper-tolerant fungi.

– (Copper azole – CA-C) is a formulation made of soluble copper and organic triazoles (tebuconazole and propiconazole) as the co-biocide to control copper-tolerant fungi.

Preserve is also available with built-in water repellent and marketed as Preserve Plus.
