Belco Launches XT Plank

XT Plank T&G natural boards

SHELTON – Belco Forest Products announces the newest member of the ArmorCoat XT preservative treated wood product family. XT Plank is offered as a natural board, kiln dried and conditioned to approximately 12% MC, ensuring negligible movement and enhanced stability. The two newest XT Plank offerings:
1. The traditional and widely popular 1×6 WP-4 V4E v-groove profile that is a reversible SPF board with two smooth-sided faces.
2. A 2×6 DF WC-200 V2E decking plank, graded on the groove side.

“Our 1×6 is an ideal length for nearly every application,” said VP of Sales Roger Roatch. “With a tight knot face, voids are minimized, it’s far more dimensionally stable than a ripped 2x and the clean, light face will readily accept stains to meet nearly any “look” a homeowner would choose.”

XT Plank is ideally suited for soffits, porch and patio ceilings, walls, covered floor decks and interior cladding. The 1×6 board comes in 16’ lengths which is the most commonly ordered size and ships either unfinished, primed or stained depending on order details. The 2×6 comes in lengths from 10-20 feet and ships unfinished, primed or stained as well.

“Our XT products feature Wolman® AG, a wood preservative that deposits deep into the wood cells to reduce a potential of decay,” said Roatch. “That’s why we can offer every homeowner a 20-year non-prorated warranty against rot and decay. Having a certified chemical that is tested and approved by AWPA, and following strict application protocol, we gladly accept responsibility for our product’s performance. Our homeowners, builders and dealers have a responsibility to homeowners, and we provide a product that gives them that peace of mind, knowing that ArmorCoat XT natural wood products will not only look great, but also stand up against the ravages of time.”
XT Plank joins the ArmorCoat XT line of Trim and structural columns available through lumber and building material dealers nationwide. Call Belco Forest products (360) 426-8900 for a dealer near you.
