    TREATMENT RELATED TOLERANCES FOR OUTDOOR WOODPRODUCTS

    When Q-Deck Plus products are pressure pre-

    treated with TANALITH E they swell beyond the

    finished size. This can be as much as 4% of the

    original size and depends on the moisture content

    before treatment and the direction of the grain.

    Therefore, products can end up slightly different

    sizes after treatment.

    As these products dry back to their moisture

    content before treatment, they will shrink back to

    their original machined finished size. During long

    periods of dry summer weather the moisture

    content of the decking products can drop below

    their original moisture content before treatment.

    In this situation they can shrink up to as much as

    2.5% of their original machined size and it is

    normal and acceptable to get a degree of surface

    checking.

    In autumn/winter when the weather gets wetter

    the moisture content of these products can rise

    back to similare levels before treatment and as a

    result the affects of surface checking often

    disappear as they close.
