Classifying wood as either Hardwood or Softwood comes down to its Physical Structure and Composition . In Timber Gluts and Timber Dunnage usage we look for the Mechanical Properties of Timber, Crushing Strength, Modulus of Elasticity and Modulus of Rupture, Timber species are given a S OR SD rating associated with each particular Specie, a S rating is used for Green Sawn Timber and SD for Kiln dried Timber.
|Modulus Of Rupture||103||86||73||62||52||43||36|
|Modulus Of Elasticity||16300||14200||12400||10700||9100||7900||6900|
|Maximum Crushing Strength||52||43||36||31||26||22||18|
|Modulus Of Rupture||150||130||110||94||78||65||55||45|
|Modulus Of Elasticity||21500||18500||16000||14000||12500||10500||9100||7900|

Perth Timber Gluts FAQ – What is ISPM 15?
ISPM 15 was developed to address the global spread of timber pests by regulating the movement of timber packaging and dunnage in international trade. ISPM 15 describes measures to reduce the risk of introduction and/or spread of quarantine pests associated with solid timber packaging material (includes dunnage).
ISPM 15 can be applied to any solid wood packaging material. The following products are exempt: wood packaging made wholly of wood-based products such as plywood and veneer, reconstituted wood products (particle board, chipboard, hardboard (masonite) oriented strand board, high density fibre board, and medium density fibre board) or products created using glue, heat and pressure or a combination of these.
Perth Timber Gluts FAQ – What is Treated Timber?
Treated Timber is timber which has been coated with preservatives to increase the timber’s resistance to attack by wood fungi (rot) and wood eating insects. This chemical treatment increases the timber’s durability to an enhanced level which is suitable for the intended use. Both Treated and Untreated can be used outside as a Timber glut however the Untreated glut especially Softwood will have a limited lifespan compared with the treated option which could last as long as 40 years if treated to a high Level. Due to Hardwoods natural resistance to treatment they are not generally treated, Pine however is widely treated and extensively used as gluts.
There is a large variety of treatments available, some treatments protect the timber against borers and/or termites; others protect the timber against insects, borers and general decay. Different coating preservatives are used for different protection requirements or Hazard Levels.
Perth Timber Gluts FAQ – 6 Hazard Treatment Levels
There are six main levels of treatment and a number of sub-levels. These are called hazard levels and relate to the hazard to which the timber is going to be exposed.Please see the table below which are based on the hazardousness of the exposure. Different Hazard Levels have different preservatives, different preservative penetration patterns and different preservative retention requirements.
|Hazard Level||Exposure||Specific Service Conditions||Biological Hazard||Typical Uses|
|H1||Inside, above ground||Completely protected from the weather and well ventilated and protected from termites||Lyctid Borer||Framing, flooring, furniture, interior joinery|
|H2||Inside, above ground||Protected from wetting, Nil leaching||Borers and termites||Framing, flooring, etc., used in dry situations|
|H2F||Inside, above ground||Protected from wetting, Nil leaching||Borers and termites||Framing (envelope treatment) used in dry situations south of the Tropic of Capricorn only|
|H2S||Inside, above ground||Protected from wetting, Nil leaching||Borers and termites||LVL/Plywood (glue-line treatment) used in dry situations south of the Tropic of Capricorn only|
|H3||Outside, above ground||Subject to periodic moderate wetting and leaching||Moderate decay, borers and termites||Weatherboard, fascia, pergola posts (above ground), window joinery, framing and decking|
|H3A||Outside, above ground||Products predominantly in vertical exposed situations and intended to have the supplementary paint coat system that is regularly maintained||Moderate decay, borers and termites||Fascia, bargeboards, exterior cladding, window joinery, door joinery and non-laminated verandah posts|
|H4||Outside, in-ground contact||Subject to severe wetting and leaching||Severe decay, borers and termites||Fence posts, greenhouses, pergola posts (in-ground) and landscaping timbers|
|H5||Outside, in-ground contact, contact with or in fresh water||Subject to extreme wetting and leaching and/or where the critical use requires a higher degree of protection||Very severe decay, borers and termites||Retaining walls, piling, house stumps, building poles, cooling tower fill|
