Wood Protection Association

The WPA is a technical and advisory organisation dedicated to improving the performance of wood as the sustainable construction material of choice.

Most timber used in the UK is a plantation-grown softwood; these lack sufficient natural durablility for many construction applications. However, with correct treatment, they will deliver the required service in any application – indoors and out.
WPA specialises in the following areas

Wood selection for different end uses
Specificationof preservative treatments
Specification of modified woods
Specification of flame retardant treatments
Coatings for external wood
The Standards and Regulations covering wood protection
The WPA benchmark of quality
