Tanalith E 8000, Lonza’s next generation wood preservative launched in UK and Ireland markets in July 2012, has been selected as one of the shortlisted finalist in this year’s Timber Trades Journal Award for Innovation. The overall winner will be announced at the awards event in mid-September.
Timber-Expo and TRADA teamed up to joint-sponsor the award and have been thrilled at the levels of expertise and innovation shown by all the projects, products and people involved.
Tanalith E 8000 is the culmination of extensive research, technological evolution and rigorous testing, and will provide an innovative and improved performance for fencing and outdoor treated timbers. It answers market demands for proven protection with improved quality, value and performance.
Pressure treatment with Tanalith E 8000 combines the benefits of the unique and proven core Tanalith E product that now has over 20 years of performance around the world, with an extra patent pending blend of ingredients, known as BARamine technology, to boost its performance.
This cutting-edge technology provides improved activity against standard fungi and various copper-tolerant organisms, along with a more consistent and deeper penetration of the preservative into the timber. These are all key elements in achieving the very best protection against decay and insect attack, particularly for the home-grown species used in the UK and Ireland.
The resulting next generation Tanalised timber is now available from leading treatment companies and stockists through the UK and Ireland.
