Ecolife is a non-metallic preservative that fights the effects of the sun and weather extremes that repels water, minimizes cracking and keeps boards straighter. Ecolife is approved for use in above ground applications that are six inches or more from the ground in certain residential and agricultural uses.
Ecolife is available at Lowe's, 84 Lumber, and at independent lumberyards across the country.

In 38 seconds you will see the difference in Ecolife treated lumber compared to ordinary treated lumber.
Wood wafers in this demonstration were 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.
Look for Ecolife or EL2 on the end tag.
