Title: Guide for Materials Selection and Design for Metals Used in Contact with Copper-Treated Wood

Author: Zelinka, Samuel L.

Date: 2013

Source: USDA Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory, General Technical Report, FPL-GTR-227, 2013; 15 p.

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: This design guide summarizes recent research on the corrosion of metals in treated wood, presents design strategies to minimize corrosion of metals in contact with treated wood, and is targeted toward engineers, architects, builders, and homeowners. The guide is organized as a “question and answer” document. While the questions are arranged in a logical order, each question and answer are self-contained. Special efforts have been made to provide a comprehensive bibliography to direct the reader to further information on each question. The document was created to give practical “hands-on” information for corrosion in treated wood.

Keywords: corrosion, fasteners, galvanized steel, carbon steel, preservative-treated wood, alkaline copper quaternary (ACQ), chromated copper arsenate (CCA), copper azole
