Wood boring insects can attack and cause structural weakness in both heartwood and sapwood, whereas rotFile Size: 7MB. increase the life of wood structures. Thus, the annual re-placement cost of treated wood in service is much less than that of wood without treatment. In considering preservative treatment processes and wood species, the combination must provide the required protection for the conditions of exposure and life of the structure. Pressure Treated Panels. Pressure-treated panels are typically a very affordable option for most customers. They offer a very long life span with minimal maintenance. The active preservative in the material is copper, which occurs naturally and is an effective and widely used fungicide. 6′ Cavanagh PT Panel $ Features: 20 year + life span.

As a DIYer, do you know the difference between Marine Grade Plywood and the more common Pressure Treated Plywood? Plywood is plywood, right? Wrong. The difference can sink or float your boat. “Wood is good” unless it fails to serve the purpose for which it is intended.. To understand the differences between grades of plywood, and the meaning of the various designations, is to choose wisely. In any discussion of the strength properties of wood-based panels and other adhesive-bonded wood composites, the first consideration is the constituents from which these products are made (O’Halloran and Youngquist ; Youngquist , ). The basic wood elements that can be used in the production of wood-based panels are shown in Figure. When you think of lumber, you think of one name: Georgia-Pacific.

Treating wood with pesticides can prevent wood from rotting as quickly. Treated wood is commonly used to build telephone poles, road signs, and marine pilings, as well as. Pressure-preservative-treated wood lasts. Whether the wood in a boat is encased in other protective products such as fiberglass or is exposed directly to seawater, treated wood does not rot.

In fact, most suppliers of pressure-preservative-treated plywood to the marine industry include a limited lifetime warranty against rot or delamination.
