Tehomet wooden poles from Valmont® Structures are treated against aging and natural enemies of wood, such as blue stain fungi, mildew and rot. As a natural material wood is expected to expand and shrink as the seasons and moisture change. Our elastic coating is designed to adapt to this behavior of wood without cracking. Several layers are applied to give wood its final color and to protect against UV radiation to maintain the desired aesthetic. Consistent coating is achieved by using spray gun and modern drying chamber.
Surface treatment color samples are shown below. Smooth finish is shown on top of each image and brushed finish is shown at the bottom. View Tehocoat® Powder Coating options.
Our structures can be designed to meet both CSA and AASHTO standards.
