Copper

Copper-based wood preservatives have been in use for decades in North America and have proven safe and effective in countless residential, non-residential, and industrial applications, greatly extending

the service life of wood and helping to conserve a renewable resource. Copper-based wood preservatives can be used to treat any species or species group available in North America. Certain western species such as Douglas-fir and Hem fir require incising. This is done on a machine prior to treatment that creates many little slits in the wood allowing the preservative to penetrate deep enough to meet industry standard. The addition of colorants or stains to the lumber is used to enhance consumer demand in certain markets.

Uses: Decking, fencing, railings and accessories, joists, piling and poles, sill plate, sub flooring

Species: Douglas-fir, Hem fir, Southern Yellow Pine, Spruce-Pine-Fir

Color: Available browntone, cedartone, and traditional green

Incising: Refractory species such as Douglas-fir and Hem fir require incisions in the wood to allow the preservative to penetrate deeply enough to meet penetration and retention requirements for specified uses, such as Ground Contact

Borate

Borate compounds are found in naturally occurring deposits and are a combination of boron and oxygen. Borates are very effective at killing wood destroying insects, fungi, and may also have some fire-retardant properties. The ability of borate compounds to diffuse in water is both an advantage and disadvantage. It allows the chemical to penetrate deeply into wet wood; therefore borate treatments do not require the wood to be incised prior to treatment. However, this property allows the borate chemical to leach out of the wood if exposed to wetting. As such, borate treated lumber and plywood must be protected from the weather and are not labeled for direct ground contact. Borates are also known for their relative safely and economy.

Uses: Sill plate, joists, studs, roof trusses, blocking, rafters, beams

Species: Douglas-fir, Hem fir, Southern Yellow Pine, Spruce-Pine-Fir

Color: Clear. Typically, a blue or green tinted dye is added to the treating solution to distinguish it from untreated wood

CCA

Chromated arsenicals, which include chromated copper arsenate (CCA), are a group of pesticides containing chromium, copper, and/or arsenic that protect wood against termites, fungi, and other pests.

In December 2003, chromated arsenicals manufacturers voluntarily discontinued manufacturing their product for homeowner use. CCA is still in use in industrial applications such as utility, highway, marine,

agricultural, and heavy construction.

Uses: Agricultural, guard rails, signposts, utility poles, marine

Species: Douglas-fir, Hem fir, Southern Yellow Pine, Spruce-Pine-Fir

Fire Retardant Treated

Wood is a combustible material that will burn when exposed to fire. Fire retardant treated lumber and plywood are pressure impregnated with fire retardant chemicals that go deep into the wood, not just on

the surface. These chemicals slow the spread of flames and encourage the development of a char layer on the surface which insulates the wood below and slows fire growth. This process is designed to slow down the spread of flame and reduce smoke development because of fire, to give building occupants more time to escape. Fire retardant treated lumber and plywood must be specified based on end use, whether for interior or exterior, as the treatment process varies depending on end use. Interior use is limited to applications not exposed to weather or wetting.

Uses: Floor joists, floor sheathing, partition walls, plywood sheathing, rafters, roof trusses, sill plate, sub flooring, studs, wall sheathing, 1 & 2 Hour Wall Assemblies

Species: Douglas-fir, Hem fir, Southern Yellow Pine, Spruce-Pine-Fir

Color: Clear. Typically, a red dye is added to the solution to distinguish it from untreated wood

Incising: Not applicable

Treated Wood Usage

Preservative treated wood can be used in a variety of building applications including interior, exterior, above ground, ground contact, marine, and fire retardant. Voluntary wood preservation standards are developed by the American Wood Protection Association (AWPA), a non-profit organization founded in 1904. AWPA Standards are written to safely and effectively extend the service life of preservative treated wood and are universally specified for wood preservation in the United States. AWPA Standards are also recognized worldwide.

The AWPA Use Category System (UCS) provides a simple way of using AWPA Standards. All preservative treated wood products can be placed into one of five use categories, based upon biodeterioration hazard and expected product performance. Fire retardant treated wood products are placed in their own unique use category class. The advantage of this system is simplicity, assisting specifiers and other users in the selection of the appropriate preservative treated wood product for a particular project. 

Allweather Wood preservative treated wood products are manufactured to AWPA industry standards.

Preservative Treated Wood Safety

When handling and using preservative treated wood, precaution should be taken to use and dispose of the material properly. Many of these common sense precautions also apply to untreated wood and other building materials. The state of California has additional consumer notification requirements with regards to Wood Dust and the state's Proposition 65 program.
