Know the difference with Ecolife® DCOI treated wood

Ecolife® treated wood with DCOI is the only treated wood with an integrated stabilizer standardized by the American Wood Protection Association.

Ecolife Stabilized Weather-Resistant Wood is an environmentally-advanced wood protection system, utilizing a fully integrated wood preservative with built-in stabilizer for maximum weathering protection and enhanced performance. The active ingredient in Ecolife is DCOI, a non-restricted pesticide and contains no heavy metals.

Ecolife trested wood fights the effects of the sun and weather extremes by repelling water, minimizing cracking and keeping 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.
