ProWood® is more than just another line of pressure-treated lumber and products. It is the latest in treated lumber technology — the result of years of research in treating technology.
ProWood is the brand of choice for pros and do-it-yourselfers. It's beautiful, easy to work with, durable and environmentally friendly. In fact, its MCA (micronized copper azole) formula makes it less corrosive than other pressure-treated products. A talented team of wood-preservation experts ensures that every ProWood deck, railing, fencing and lattice product exceeds the highest standards — ours — for corrosion resistance and low environmental impact.
How our superior preservative system works.
In specially equipped plants across the U.S., Universal Forest Products treats ProWood with a waterborne wood preservation system containing copper and biocides. As with typical pressure-treated products, these ingredients combine to block termite attacks and fungal decay in above-ground and ground-contact applications. But, thanks to a truly innovative process, the copper in ProWood MCA treated lumber is micronized. This makes the preservative less corrosive and makes ProWood compatible with aluminum building products. When you work with ProWood, there's no need for expensive nails or stainless steel fasteners.
Good for any project and for the environment.
Thanks to our innovative micronized treatment process, ProWood MCA lumber is odorless, non-staining, and non-irritating to humans, animals and plants. It's not surprising that the MCA process we use has earned Environmentally Preferable Product (EPP) status, as certified by Scientific Certification Systems, a third-party certification services and standards development company. The preservative used in ProWood MCA treated wood also has earned NAHB's Green Approved Product certification (pdf – 633 KB).
