Investigation of causes and methods to minimize corrosion of fasteners in copper amine treated woodCompleted

Project leaders: Cooper, Paul, Ung, Tony
 

Objective:

Corrosion of fasteners in treated wood limits applications, reduces consumer satisfaction and leads to costly returns or increased fastener costs. The purpose of this study is to investigate effects of different pre-treatment, treatment and post-treatment conditions on reducing corrosivity of treated wood in exterior appearance products treated with alkaline copper preservatives (those replacing CCA).
