Wood utility poles: Osmose Utilities Services Inc., a provider of remedial wood preservative technologies to the utility industry, has released a new solvent-free remedial preservative paste formulation for use on in-service wood utility poles. MP500-EXT preservative paste is the next generation of micronized pastes from the Osmose line of products.

The proprietary formulation of MP500-EXT features an improved environmental profile with reduced risk to the environment as well as reduced exposure risks for the applicator. MP500-EXT received an Environmental Claim Validation from UL Environment. The UL Environmental Claim Validation demonstrates to the marketplace that MP500-EXT exhibits volatile organic compound (VOC) content below the limits defined by South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) for the Wood Preservatives category of SCAQMD Rule 1113. MP500-EXT and its predecessor, MP400-EXT, are the only remedial preservative pastes that carry this distinguished validation.

The technologically advanced MP500-EXT formulation features borax, which penetrates deeply to effectively control internal decay, while the controlled release micronized copper stays in place to protect the pole surface from soft rot.
