Polymer Coated Wood


Maximum Durability

Coating for Wood Protects from Marine Borers, Termites, UV Rays, and Rot.

Our special polymer coating is an incredibly tough polymer membrane that bonds to wood, preventing destruction from marine borers, dry rot, and termites. Poly coated wood resists harmful UV rays and the effects of freezing.

The Advantages of Poly Coated Wood — Strong, Durable, Workable, and Cost-Effectivepiling selector

Easy to Use & Comes in Any Size
Poly coated wood requires no special tools or handling and can be applied selectively to the section of the wood that requires protection. Lumber coated with the special polymer coating is available in standard and custom sizes - ready to build any structure.

Timbers and pilings are often zone coated at the water line or ground line to protect the area where failure is most likely to occur. Call 1 (800) 716-0636 to discuss zone coating Poles, Pilings, and Timbers.


Passes Building Codes with Flying Colors
Polymer coated materials can pass any building code tests and standards. Our unique polymer coating was created to increase the service life of building materials so engineers and architects need only specify the dimensional lumber required for the job. The poly coating can be added after specifications with no problems.


Cut and Saw to Your Requirements
You can cut and saw Poly coated wood to your required lengths and shapes. Then, you can brush over the exposed area with the Poly coating field patch kit


The standard colors for polymer coating are Brown and Forrest Green. For custom colors please call us at 1 (800) 716-0636 or contact us online.



Polymer Coating:

  • Prolongs the useable life of your materials and total project.
  • Can be used for ZONE Coating poles and pilings at the water or ground line.
  • Can be applied to wood or steel.
  • Assures environmental protection.
  • Is applied at our production facility - no on site labor required.
  • Can be drilled or cut if necessary.


Wood Piling GuidePoly coated wood also assures environmental protection because it prevents the leaching of chemicals used for treating the wood into the surrounding soil or water.

Additional Applications for Poly Coated Wood

Polymer coated wood also effectively adheres to, and protects, steel in harsh environments to prevent rust and corrosion.

Originally created for use on marine structures such as piers, bulkheads, and docks, our unique polymer wood coating is valuable for protecting metal structures or components including:

  • Trailer beds
  • Metal Stair cases
  • Industrial-use bed liners
  • Steel & Wood house pilings
  • Steel sheet pilings
  • Oil well applications
  • Pipeline fittings
  • Saltwater injection site corrosion prevention
  • Zoo, Theme Park, and Water Park Components
