Restored timber framed covered bridge
was treated with Polaseal EFM to provide
fire protection and waterproofing.
Polaseal EFM is a water based, single component, water repellent treatment specifically designed to protect exterior wood surfaces. It penetrates the wood and then cures by reaction with air to lock itself into the pore structure of the wood. Polaseal EFM contains a proven fire retardant to reduce flame spread in the event of a fire, and a blend of special preservatives to fight against the causes of decay.
