Bending Properties of Southern Pine Treated with Micronized Preservative Systems
H M Barnes, G B Lindsey, J Hill, M Pompeo, R Hodge
This study indicates that treatment of southern pine with micronized copper systems have no
deleterious effect on the residual strength property values. No statistical differences between wood treated with micronized systems and water-treated controls were noted when means were compared using either Tukey’s test or S-N-K mean comparison tests. Using the more discriminating Least Squares analysis with specific gravity as a covariate, a few significant differences were found.
