TimberSIL is a sodium-silicate-based preservation process for wood that relies on a micro-manufacturing technology rather than toxins to prevent infestations and decay. The patented process uses heat to change a proprietary formula from a soluble solution that is infused into the wood and turn it into a microscopic layer of amorphous glass throughout the wood, providing a permanent preservation technology with no dusting or leaching. The sodium silicate the company uses in its process is derived 100% from burning rice hulls. The resulting "glass wood" does not use toxins, is odorless and nonvolatile, is not corrosive to fasteners, does not cause excessive wear on tools, and has a natural clear color. TimberSIL decking, siding, and other exterior products carry a 40-year warranty and TimberSIL interior products can be stored for up to one year of outdoor exposure with no negative consequences. TimberSIL does not require ICC approval; local codes may vary.
