The Natural Alternative to Overpriced Composite Trim
Elite Treated is Primed and Milled from Cox DuraPine Supreme (KDAT) Dry Pressure Treated Lumber. KDAT (Kiln Dried After Treatment) minimizes most shrinkage problems, and helps reduce warping, twisting, and cupping.
This premium product is graded clear two edges and one face with no wane, treated with a non-arsenic based preservative that is environmentally safe, kiln dried after treatment (KDAT), re-manufactured to a consistent thickness and width with slight eased edges, and primed with high quality exterior oil based primer fully encapsulating the product on all six sides.
All SIX sides of Elite Treated lumber are “encapsulated” with Sherwin Williams Top Quality Oil-Based primer. (End cuts must be primed prior to installation to maintain warranty and to minimize call backs and warranty claims.
Oil-based primers on wood products greatly increase the durability of the substrate as recommended by the Forest Products Laboratory and Southern Pine Council.
Oil-based primers are vapor barriers and will prevent absorption of additional water into the board.
