Polymer Coated Wood for Ultra Protection
The special polymer wood coating is a protective polymer coating engineered specifically for use on wood. The special polymer coating bonds to wood creating a protective barrier that is impenetrable by marine borers or termites.
Engineers and contractors offer polymer coated wood to set themselves apart as offering a product no one else can offer. It is an excellent value-add offering for customers, creating a product that will last virtually forever. A fence built using treated posts zone coated with polymer coated wood will NOT rot at the ground line.
Utility companies benefit from polymer coated wood with savings of labor and materials costs. The benefits of polymer coated wood for a utility company are simple.
Polymer Coated Ground Line Zone Coating for Utility Poles:
- Prolongs the useable life of the utility pole.
- Prevents the need for wrapping the pole in the future – saving material and labor cost.
- Assures environmental protection – chemicals will not leach into soil.
- Polymer wood coating is applied at our production facility – no on site labor is required.
- Can be drilled or cut if necessary.
Polymer coated wood ensures environmental protection because it prevents the leaching of the chemicals used for treating the wood into the surrounding soil or water.

Pole – defined by its particular structural installation. If the pole is set with the butt (large end) in the ground, such as a utility pole or barn pole, it is referred to as a pole.
Piling – also defined by its installation. Pilings are driven into the ground with the tip (small end) first.
