Lonza pressure treatment products

Tanalith® and Vacsol® range of preservative products

Wood is the most versatile product nature has to offer. However, it can also be vulnerable to the effects of the weather, wood decay and insect attack. TANALITH® and VACSOL® preservative treatments extend the service life of your wood and help maintain its natural appearance. Timbers treated with TANALITH® can be used with confidence in both above-ground and in-ground situations including construction, fencing, landscaping and engineering applications. Timbers treated with VACSOL® are designed for above-ground general building applications.

TANALITH® and VACSOL® products have been tried, tested and proven to effectively extend the service life of your wood and let you enjoy it for longer.
