The new formulation adds UV and moisture protection for exterior lumber architectural details to existing features that protect from termites, rot and fire.

Designed for new residential construction and residential remodeling, Eco Armor builds on Eco's extensive product line, which includes Eco Red Shield and Eco Disaster Break. The company says the latter products have been widely used in East Coast areas ravaged last year by Superstorm Sandy.
