ECO CLEAR SHIELD™
PROTECTING LUMBER'S NATURAL BEAUTY
Protecting Wood's Natural Beauty
Eco Clear Shield™ Protected Lumber is a major breakthrough in interior and exterior protected lumber and is designed for staining. This revolutionary wood is topically-coated with chemical solids controlling moisture and protecting the wood from mold, termites, wood-rot and optional protection from fire.
As we know, the lumber we use today is different than just 25-30 years ago. Today's lumber is juvenile or new-growth lumber and is more susceptible to the natural enemies of wood such as water, mold, fire and insects. This is because this juvenile lumber is more porous and essentially acts like a sponge - absorbing moisture and then subsequently producing mold and/or wood rot which then in turn attracts termites. It's a natural, destructive and unhealthy cycle that attacks untreated lumber and is responsible for potentially billions of dollars in damage and home repair. Logs are frequently stored underwater - sometimes for more than a year, so even though your lumber looks fine during construction there are no guarantees what microorganisms are in your walls once you seal it shut with drywall. At Eco, our goal is to change the way we build with lumber embracing our sustainable technology.
Sustainable & Eco-Friendly
Long term, our protected lumber will reduce the demand for timber because lumber built dwellings will last longer and may not require the same amount of maintenance or repair due to mold and termite damage. More importantly, Eco Clear Shield™ Protected Lumber is protected against mold, thus providing a healthier environment for people who live there. Eco Clear Shield™ Protected Lumber emits no odors (virtually zero VOCs) while being protected in the most innovative way.
