Tanasote

A New Choice For High Performance Heavy Duty Timbers

TANASOTE S40 is a BPR authorised oil based wood preservative designed for the treatment of high performance, heavy duty wood applications.

Based upon an innovative combination of organic biocides and copper in a hot oil formulation, TANASOTE S40 (more commonly referred to as TANASOTE) has been specifically designed to protect and extend the service life of industrial timber applications such as utility poles, railway sleepers and hard landscaping timbers.

Extensive efficacy testing has shown that TANASOTE treated timbers will deliver a service life of up to 40 years and are non-hazardous to human and animal health, and to the environment.

BPR Authorisation

TANASOTE S40 is now authorised in Sweden according to the Biocidal Products Regulation (EU) No 528/2012  (BPR). Authorisations in the remaining EU countries are expected to follow shortly.


A Focus on LCA

Looking specifically at utility poles, independent Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) results show that S40 treated wooden poles were the lowest impact pole type when compared against a cast concrete pole, fiberglass polyester pole, steel pole, spun concrete pole and a fiberglass epoxy pole.
