Factory to improve wood durability

Update: March, 16/2012 - 10:12

HCM CITY—Timberlink Vietnam, a joint venture company between New Zealand and Vietnamese partners, announced on Wednesday the completion of its new wood treatment plant in southern Dong Nai Province that would help improve durability of softwood.

The treated softwood would be supported by a 25-year guarantee against rot, decay and insect attack, a JV statement said.

The plant, which will begin operation in Bien Hoa 1 Industrial Park early April, will employ new technologies including the light organic solvent preservative, the first of its kind in Viet Nam.

The greater durability would give Vietnamese manufacturers the ability to add more value to their wood products for both local and export markets, and give customers far greater confidence in using wood products for long term purposes, said Graham Sims, New Zealand Consul General and Trade Commissioner.-VNS
