Treatment Types

As the industry’s only vertically integrated provider of both poles and treatment chemicals, KUIP sits at the forefront of preservative development. We provide preservative and enhancement products that help prevent damage from termites, rot, fungal decay, fire, and more.

Unmatched Performance & Protection

Koppers historical commitment to advanced R&D provides KUIP unmatched access to leading-edge treatment options all offered under our well-known and trusted DuraPine® brand.


Our heavy-duty CCA preservative has been specifically formulated to protect poles by countering the attack of termites and fungi while keeping wood clean, odorless,
non-staining and safe to handle when used as directed.


Through use of Koppers Climbing Additive Technology this treatment offers the enhanced climbability of an oil emulsion, along with the proven durability of CCA treatment. The viscous oil emulsion of this treatment serves as a lubricant making it easier to climb than traditional CCA treated poles.


Koppers is one of the world’s largest producers of creosote and this petroleum-based treatment remains a market favorite particularly in South Central areas of the United States. Additionally, once its service life is complete, its strong BTU value makes it an attractive biomass fuel.


DCOI is an EPA-approved,
patent-pending preservative formulation developed by Koppers Performance Chemicals. DCOI is both AWPA (P39) and RUS approved as an organic
oil-borne preservative for utility poles and crossarms.
