C.C.A. Pressure Treated Timbers - These "state of the art" treated timbers.
They are put under 150 lbs. p.s.i. pressure until the wood has absorbed
the prescribed amount of preservative (chromated copper arsenate). This
treatment is ideal because the pressure saturates the soft areas which
are the most susceptible to decay. This type of treatment gives the wood
either a green or brown color. If one timber is darker than another, it
does not mean it has more treatment, it is determined by the species of
wood and exposure to sunlight. C.C.A. is a water based treatment which
bonds itself to the wood cells, consequently it leaves no oily residue
and it has a clean surface. These timbers are user friendly. They are
lightweight, and can be cut easily, nailed without drilling and painted
or stained a desired color. Pieces of this wood should not be burned as
they can release harmful gases.
Railroad ties and timbers are excellent for building retaining walls,
bordering, fencing, garden dividers, planters and other decorative uses.
