The launch of Low Odour Timberlink Green occurred about a year ago, in July 2015 and was a world first.

It is a great example of an innovative product enhancement that was possible that came about due to listening to customer feedback and working collaboratively with a partner supplier.

Timberlink initiated its development after customers complained about the smell when stocking LOSP treated timber.

Customers appreciated the dimensional stability and appearance of LOSP timber but the solvent odour was an ongoing concern.

Based on this concern Timberlink Australia commenced working very closely with Arch Wood Protection to explore solutions.
