Kiln Dried After Treatment Lumber


What Is KDAT?

Kiln Dried After Treatment (KDAT) is a drying process that occurs after pressure treating wood. Once lumber is pressure treated, it is placed in a large oven or kiln. This drying process removes excess moisture and chemicals from the wood that treatment services leave behind. The kiln allows for wood to dry back to its original moisture content. KDAT helps to minimize the natural tendencies of wood to cup, shrink or warp.
