Building Code Compliance
YellaWood® brand products meet the requirements of model building codes for many applications.
Our preservative process is a micronized copper base with a co-biocide that revolutionized the wood treatment industry. In it, copper is milled to submicron-sized particles and suspended in solution rather than dissolved. The result? A lighter, more natural (and more appealing) appearance than other treatment processes.
Extensive field testing has proven the effectiveness of the micronized copper preservative and its viability as a long-term player.
Wood treated with micronized copper preservatives (MCA) meet requirements of model building codes for many applications. ICC Evaluation Services has issued a code evaluation report for MCA.
