    ACQ Pressure Treated Lumber

    Correct me if I'm wrong but with the new ACQ lumber, I absolutely must use a galvanized nail to prevent the copper corrosion reaction, right??

    Re: ACQ Pressure Treated Lumber

    As taken off Sutherland's website, you gotta use hot-dipped galvanized or stainless steel fasteners because of your copper corrosion effect as you found above.

    Read about it here: Project Resources: The FAQ's of ACQ Treated Lumber

    Re: ACQ Pressure Treated Lumber

    Thanks. I haven't done any major building since the arsenic stuff went off the market. I just want to be sure so that my framed walls are breaking off a the treated floor plate in a year.

    Re: ACQ Pressure Treated Lumber

    I've heard stainless steel are the best.

    You'll also need a second mortgage to purchase them. At minimum, you need a triple zinc hot dipped galvanized fastener that the ACQ won't eat through for a number of years.
