DescriptionIn 2004, the voluntary removal of chromated copper arsenate (CCA) from residential wood construction raised concern about corrosion of metal fasteners in wood treated with replacement preservatives. Replacement preservatives contain more copper, which may increase corrosion, and do not contain chromates or arsenates, which are known corrosion inhibitors. This paper is an overview of activities related to standardizing or acceptance testing, research, and design considerations related to corrosion performance of fasteners in treated wood.
