Q. What is UC4 Timber?
A. McVeigh Parker UC4 products are manufactured using only redwoods treated at a moisture content of 28% or less. The solution strength of the presentative is significantly higher than on standard pressure treatments and the vacuum/pressure process is longer and more thorough than standard treatment cycles, allowing for much deeper penetration of the preservative into the timber. Standard non dried pressure treated products have a shorter expected service life, whereas McVeigh Parker UC4 products have a longer expected service life as McVeigh Parker UC4 products are treated against fungal decay and wood destroying insects and have a desired service life of 15 years. The entire treatment process is quality assured in accordance with ISO 9001 criteria, and regular sampling and analysis ensures treatment standards are maintained at all times.
