Palmetto Primed Treated Lumber is a premium product that is graded clear—two edges and one face with no wane—and treated with a non-arsenic based preservative that is environmentally safe. It undergoes kiln drying after treatment (KDAT), and is re-manufactured to a consistent thickness and width with square edges, and finally all six sides of Palmetto Primed 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.)

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.
