Creosote – An Update

Creosote is an excellent wood preservative, typically giving a pole life of 40 years or more. The continued use of Creosote as a wood preservative in Europe is now under threat with an E.U. license review due in March 2021. Creosote has a current classification as a Category C.B. carcinogen by the European Chemicals Agency (E.C.H.A.) as well as a persistent, bioaccumulative and toxic substance. The license renewal looks unlikely.

Partial Vs Total Barriers

Because the most vulnerable section of a wooden utility pole lies at and just below the ground line, we can protect this area with a barrier product. Barrier products work in conjunction with the preservative treatment to increase the service life of the pole by eliminating or reducing the factors necessary for wood decay to occur whilst reducing or preventing loss of wood preservative.
