About Preschem

Preschem was founded by Chris McEvoy and Chen-Woo Chin, both former CSIRO scientists who have 30 years combined scientific, technical and industrial experience in the field of wood preservation. They have published numerous technical papers in Australia and overseas on the subject.

Since 1988, Preschem has become Australia’s leading manufacturer of remedial timber preservatives and quality exterior timber finishes. Preschem’s preservative products are designed to extend the life of timber by preventing timber decay and wood rot, while our exterior timber finishes are designed to protect and enhance the natural beauty of timber. All of Preschem’s products are designed for maximum performance in Australia’s tough climactic conditions.

Preschem takes a pro-active approach in the development, manufacture and end use of its products which are environmentally responsible and safe to use by all users ranging from industry through to the home handyman. This is done by carefully choosing the ingredients to be effective, safe to handle and more importantly, with minimal environmental impact. Preschem’s production process is designed around the same philosophy, where the recycling of waste materials means it operates under a virtually closed loop manufacturing system.

Since 2000, Preschem has focused on export markets into the southern hemisphere, where utilities use Eucalyptus species for power poles. Preschem’s timber preservatives now have a proven track record on 3 continents including Australasia, Southern Africa and South America.
