AuraLast Wood is the result of years of research and development. JELD-WEN developed a proprietary vacuum-pressure process to distribute the protective ingredients into the core of the wood for virtually 100% surface-to-core protection against wood rot. AuraLast also protects against termites and water saturation—two important considerations for homeowners.
Other manufacturers dip-treat their wood components in a solvent-based chemical bath, which only protects the surface. Consequently, the treatment’s effectiveness can be compromised when the surface is milled, sanded or subjected to the rigors of weather.
- AuraLast protects against wood rot. AuraLast Wood achieved the highest performance levels to withstand wood rot as measured by the Window and Door Manufacturing Association (WDMA) industry standard. (WDMA T.M. 1 Soil Block test, AWPA E9-97 and AWPA E10-91)
- AuraLast protects against subterranean termites. Termites cause billions of dollars of damage to homes in the United States every year. AuraLast simply repels termites in the first place. The same vacuum-pressure manufacturing process that protects windows against wood rot also protects against termites, so there’s no need for additional treatments in order to keep your wood windows worry-free. (Tested to highest levels of performance as measured by AWPA E1-97 standard method for laboratory evaluation to determine resistance to subterranean termites.)
- AuraLast protects against water saturation. AuraLast Wood offers superior resistance to water and protects wood against swelling. This helps prevent the door or window from sticking so it will open and close easily regardless of weather conditions. (Far exceeds the requirements of WDMA IS-4, T.M. 2 Swellometer Test as measured by anti-swelling efficiency.)
