Long Lasting Polymer Coated Poles

Use Polyshield® Protective Wood Coating for Ultra Protection

Get the most life from your poles and pilings with our amazing poly wood coating, a protective polymer coating engineered for use on wood. The special coating bonds to wood, creating a protective barrier that is impenetrable by marine borers or termites.

Engineers and contractors offer poly coated wood to set them apart as offering a product no one else can offer. It is a cost-effective value-add upgrade for customers, creating a product that will last virtually forever. For example, a fence built using treated posts zone coated with poly coated wood will NOT rot at the ground line.

Utility Companies Using Poly Coating Wraps

Utility companies benefit from the amazing polymer coating with savings of labor and materials costs. The benefits of poly coated poles for a utility company are simple.

Poly wood coating Ground Line Zone Coating for Utility Poles:

  • Prolongs the useable life of the pole.
  • Prevents the need for wrapping the pole in the future – saving material and labor cost.
  • Assures environmental protection.
  • Is applied at our product facility – no on site labor is required.
  • Can be drilled or cut if necessary.

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


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.
