South African Wood Preservers Association (SAWPA)

The South African Wood Preservers Association (SAWPA) is an Industry Association representing industrial timber treatment plants as well as the chemical companies that supply preservatives to such processing plants.  

SAWPA is a non-profit association formed primarily to promote timber treatment and treated timber products.  Commercially grown timber in Southern Africa is mainly of the Eucalyptus and Pinus species, both of which are not durable.  By applying the correct chemicals to these timbers, we are able to ensure that the timber performs as if it were durable thereby giving predictable long-life performance.
