Preserve® is treated with ACQ®, an environmentally advanced copper and quat preservative system that is arsenic-free and chromium-free. It provides long-term protection from rot, decay and termites without the use of any EPA-listed hazardous chemicals.
Preserve® can be painted or stained to match any outdoor color scheme. High quality oil and latex-based paints and stains are recommended. Water repellent coatings can be applied to improve the weathering performance. Left uncoated or with clear water repellent coatings, Preserve will initially weather to a natural brown color, eventually turning gray following long-term exposure to the sun.
