Effect of timber density on retention of wood preservatives

  • Zhang Shiran
  • Bian Liping


The amount of CCA fixed in the southern pine treated with CCA have been evaluated. The conclusions from these experiments are:with the timber density increases, the retention based on weight/weight will decrease, but the retention based on weight/volume will be almost constant. Retention by weight would be more influential than by volume.
