This Standard sets out the method for determining the penetration of preservative into preservative-treated wood products.
It deals with the preparation of material for testing and the methods for determining the penetration of creosote, boron, copper in copper-based preservatives, pentachlorophenol, tin, zinc and fluorine.
This Standard is intended to be read in conjunction with AS/NZS 1605.1 and the AS/NZS 1604 series, NZS 3640 or the relevant Standard to which timber is claimed to have been treated. The preservatives incorporated in the AS/NZS 1604 series are required to be accompanied by analytical methods for their determination, which are incorporated in the AS/NZS 1605 series.
