In 38 seconds you will see the difference in Ecolife treated lumber compared to ordinary treated lumber.

Wood wafers in this demonstration are cut from the same 2x6 board. Half the board is treated with Ecolife and half the board is treated with preservatives from ordinary treated lumber. The boards were then cut into wafers to show the effects of moisture and the effectiveness of the integrated stabilizer.
