Better wood than wood
BASF high-density polyurethane foams are changing the way external structures are built and how long they last. Fences and decks are now impervious to rot, mold and fungus, and are insect and termite resistant. So the structures stay strong, safe and always look as good as the day they were first installed.
BASF high-density foams like Elastopor® feature a custom formulation that allows them to be foamed and molded in place—to any shape or design--painted or laminated, and offer a longer life expectancy with lower maintenance than traditional wood fences and decks.
