Treated Timber:- Copper Chromium Arsenic (CCA)

Bundaberg Timber Fence

 

3280When we talk about fences we here the terminology used quite frequently “treated timber”. When building a fence we typically use 2 types of timber that are treated, pine and varieties of Australian hardwood. We treat the timber most commonly with a substance called Copper Chromium Arsenic or better known as “CCA”.
We have been treating timber here in Australia using CCA now for the last 50 years and there are approximately 120 treatment plants scattered around Australia. These days we have reduced the amount of arsenic to curb health issues to under 2% and is in effect a relatively safe choice of treatment so it is completely safe to use and works a treat (pardon the pun) to lengthen the life of your fence.
