What is L.O.S.P. Treated Pine?
L.O.S.P. treated pine is a treatment applied to the timber. L.O.S.P is Light Organic Solvent Preservative and is recognized as a user and environmentally friendly alternative to C.C.A. treatment. The Sydney Olympic Site in 2000 specified exclusively the use of L.O.S.P. treated pine and banned C.C.A treated timbers. It maximises the life of the timber and gives protection against wet rot, dry rot and termite attack.We redip all products after cutting in LOSP.
What is finger jointed and laminated L.O.S.P. Treated Pine?
Finger jointed and laminated treated pine is a manufacturing process which uses smaller straight pieces of timber and joins them with a finger like connection glued with waterproof glue. Finger Jointed Laminated treated pine offers a solution to the increasing shortage of solid timber panels. The timber is kiln dried to a moisture content below 10%, planed and ripped to thinner strips. These strips are finger jointed after colour matching to the desired lengths and then edge coated with special resins which can withstand boiling water tests. The coated strips are edge laminated applying pressure from the sides and top in a composer press to form panels. These panels are sanded to produce finished solid timber product. Machining these pieces can be done exactly the way solid timber is machined. The process offers straightness and free from twist pieces that are guaranteed for strength and quality.
