Wood Protection Technologies, Inc. offers component manufacturers important market differentiation, value added sales and margins through the Company’s Affiliate Applicator Program. The WoodProTech System™ marries its patented chemistry with low-cost, turnkey application lines that can be up and running in as little as 90 days.
The WoodProTech System is proven to be effective in protecting whole framing packages against mold, fire, fungal decay and termites while dramatically improving dimensional stability – even with SYP. WPT’s patent pending Wood Surface Film Concentrate™ encases the wood in a polymer barrier that allows it to breathe but locks in mildewcides, fungicides and termiticides that bond with the wood fiber at the molecular level. WPT’s patented fire inhibitor, FRC12™ is added to offer Class A ratings on dimensional lumber and a superior alternative to FRTW.
Operating lines designed by operators – with over 10 years of experience in coating operations, WPT’s technicians have partnered with mechanical engineers to design application lines that are reliable, easy to set up and operate. The lines are highly scalable, modular, bolt to the floor and turnkey within 90 days. The process involves no hazardous materials and is monitored to strict QA standards by proprietary, cloud-based software. While the equipment is built to handle all typical framing materials, including heavy beams, the componentry is specifically designed to be off-the-shelf and widely available making maintenance and repairs inconsequential.
WPT’s suite of robust formulations – WPT 3000, 4000 and 8000 have been third party tested to the latest ASTM standards and certified code compliant by DrJ Engineering. Unlike traditional pressure treating, there is no strength reduction, no VOC’s, negligible weight gain from processing and is non-corrosive.
The WoodProTech System streamlines the supply chain and puts protection as close to the end user as possible. The Company’s objective is to position wood products manufacturers to offer their dealers, framers, contractors and builders, proven, cost effective solutions to moisture related framing problems as well as a superior alternative to FRTW lumber.
