Foundation & Marine Piles

Koppers foundation and marine piles are renown for their superior quality.  Hardwood and softwood foundation piles are preservative treated to Hazard Level H5.  Hardwood piles for marine applications are preservative treated to H6 in accordance with AS1604.

For southern waters, Koppers offers marine piling treated with CCA.  For temperate and tropical waters, Koppers offers marine piles with a unique double-treatment process using CCA and PEC (Pigment Emulsified Creosote).


Aggressive (acidic) soil conditions

Koppers recommends and can supply hardwood foundation piles treated with Pigment Emulsified Creosote (PEC), which provides exceptional durability and long term performance in harsh soil conditions. Please contact us about this option so that we can discuss your project needs and lead-time planning.
