Pressure treated lumber: wood that has been engrossed in a fluid preservative and placed in a
pressure chamber is called pressure treated lumber. The chamber forces the compound into the
wood strands. This force or the under pressure move toward, makes sure that the compound
makes it to the center of each portion of wood such that it is much more efficient than just
soaking the wood in the chemical.

read on to know what it is all about. Formerly the preservatives used to pressure treat wood for
non-commercial applications include:

       Chromium
       Copper
       Arsenic

Pressure treating process: it is one such process that forces a compound stabilizer deep into the
wood and it is placed into a humongous cylindrical holding tank; in turn the tank is depressurized
to do away with all air. Under high pressure the tank is filled again with the preservative deeply
into the wood forcing it. Then the tank is drained and the remaining preservative is reused. Later
the wood is removed from the tank.
