We were seeing 10% of our ties splitting during air season. After we started dipping with Cellu‑Treat, splitting is now down to 1%. Ties are also drying a month or two sooner. That surprised us, and we actually tested three times to confirm. Dipping prior to air season is definitely better. Now we can keep ties in the air longer if needed. We have fewer season checks and ties look new after seasoning. Doug Mellott, Vice President Mellott Wood Preserving | Needmore, PA " 800-264-0870
