Preservatives of the metallic series and oil soluble preservatives are not readily apparent in a cross section of wood either due to similar color to the species of wood or lack of color of the preservative itself. Chemical staining of a treated specimen of wood reveals the presence of the preservative.
The sapwood and heartwood of Douglas-Fir and the pine species can be differentiated by a chemical stain.View Less
1.1 These test methods cover procedures for determining penetration of preservatives in wood in cases where demarcation between the treated and untreated wood is not readily visible. Included are test methods for differentiating the heartwood and the sapwood of wood samples for specific species, and a test method for differentiating the heartwoods between the red oaks and the white oaks.
1.2 The procedures appear in the following order:
Procedure Sections Penetration of Arsenic-Containing Preservatives 6 to 8 Penetration of Copper-Containing Preservatives 9 to 11 Penetration of Fluoride-Containing Preservatives 12 to 15 Penetration of Pentachlorophenol Using 4,4[prime]-bis-Dimet
