The study of wood as a renewable material and organic material is what is known as wood science. Wood technology is now the way the tools are utilized in the processes of wood preservation. Wood is treated as a material in direct comparison with other products. The wood is checked against the other materials properties, performances, value, and work-ability. The many Merits of timber and these technologies improve wood to be superior over other products. The wide range of products where wood can be used is just one of the many advantages that give wood an upper hand over other products. Wood is renewable, and this makes it more precious. Timber can be utilized in very many applications, and this makes it more valuable.
The good appearance of your timber made structure cannot be guaranteed if protection of the timber is not done. The biggest threat to wood being moisture and insects has to be kept away from the wood. The water particles in the timber increase the rotting and the insects bore through the wood. Alkaline copper Quaternary or the ACQ has turned out to be a very effective way wood preservation. This is a copper-based preservative that is applied to the wood for protection. As effective as this preservative, it has some downside to its use. It is a highly corrosive chemical that affects most metals that are used together with the wooden products. The saturation level of any treatment will depend on where the wood is going to be used and the species of the wood. The level of chemical concentration will be determined by where the piece of wood is going to be put to use.
The use of copper metal is another method of wood treatment that is fast being accepted. The use of this method is fast being accepted because it is not corroding the metal fasteners. This process is what in other words called the micronized copper wood preservative. The copper metal is applied to the wood as small microscopic particles injected into the wood at high pressure. The process eliminates the need to dissolve the copper as is done in earlier copper-based preservatives. When this process is used to treat timber the timber properties are increased highly. The timber treated in this way is used in both outdoor and indoor frames that last very long.
The micronized copper preservative has proven to be highly effective in protecting the wood against fungal decay and termites. It has also shown to be an improvement in corrosion resistant properties to metal fasteners. When you use this method to treat wood, then you will not need to worry for at least ten years.
