Title: The use of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) to measure the corrosion of metals in contact with wood

Author: Zelinka, Samuel L.; Rammer, Douglas R.;

Date: 2005

Source: TMS letters [electronic resource]. Vol. 2, no. 1 (2005): pages 15-16.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Although preservative treatments prolong the life of wood, they can also contribute to the corrosion of fasteners. The corrosion of fasteners merits further study because it can affect the long-term durability of structures and fundamental knowledge of corrosion in wood is limited. The goal of this study is to determine the viability of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) as an accelerated testing procedure for determining the corrosion rate of metals in water-saturated wood.

Keywords: Accelerated life testing, fasteners, wood preservatives, preserved wood, metals, corrosion, anti-corrosives, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, preservative treated wood, accelerated testing, treated wood, CCA, ACQ, preservatives, chromated copper arsenate, alkaline copper quat
