What is NW100®?

NW100 is a preservative system based on Alkaline Copper Quaternary compounds for the pressure treatment of wood products. The main active ingredients are copper and quaternary compounds. Copper has long been known to be an effective wood preservative. Copper and quaternary compounds together provide a broad spectrum of long-term protection for wood exposed in exterior applications.
