Samples of yellow pine sapwood (Pinus sylvestris L.) were treated with solutions of CCA (0.85%, 1.5% and 2%), ACQ-1900 (2%, 3% and 7%), ACQ-2200 (1%, 2%), Tanalith E 3491 (2%, 2.8%), and Wolmanit CX-8 (2%, 2.8%) in order to determine the effects of new wood preservatives on modulus of elasticity (MOE) and modulus of rapture (MOR) which are the primary criteria for the selection and designing of wood constructions.
