Charlotte, N.C. (Dec.23, 2020) – Viance, a leading innovator in the wood preservation industry announces production of UltraPoleTM NXT with DCOI at the Stella-Jones Pineville, LA plant for southern yellow pine utility poles.
UltraPole NXT, treated with DCOI is a rigorously tested, environmentally advanced preservation system that offers utilities an alternative to penta and other preservative systems currently in use.
“UltraPole NXT is the preservative that combines the best characteristics of penta without some of its less desirable aspects. DCOI treated poles offer electric utilities a high performance, durable pole that is climbable, with low to no odor and lower environmental impact.” states Bob Baeppler, Business Development Manager – Industrial Products, with Viance.
UltraPole NXT uses less energy, fossil fuels and water to produce, with lower eco-toxicity than other materials used for poles. UltraPole NXT capitalizes on both the physical and environmental strengths of wood poles, with less impact on the environment.
