Creosote Treating Plants

Creosote has been used as one of the most effective wood preservatives for nearly two centuries now, and for good reason. This handy material acts as a great preservative for wood in both outdoor and in-ground use.

Using coal tar tends to be more effective, but what you use won’t matter much if you don’t have the proper equipment needed to treat the wood.
That’s where American Wood Technology can help. Learn about our creosote treating plants and discover how we can assist you in making wood treatment easier and more efficient than ever before.

A Low-Toxicity Alternative – Copper Naphthenate

Creosote is heavily regulated due to its perceived potential environmental impact. While all our plants meet the necessary requirements, we’ve explored alternatives as well. The most popular alternative is copper naphthenate, which could replace creosote, specifically when used for ties and poles. Despite being used since the late 19th century, copper naphthenate is only recently gaining traction, due to its impressive low toxicity.

Like our typical plants, these factories can be shipped either fully assembled or in just a few pieces, depending on the size you need, directly to your worksite. Not only do you get to enjoy a more environmentally friendly alternative, but you get to enjoy the convenience of a Factory-In-A-Box as well.
