This Wood Information Sheet (WIS) describes tried and tested principles and practices for minimising the risk of corrosion, with signposts to more detailed sources that are listed at the end.

It also provides specifiers and designers with examples of where the risk of the corrosion of metals by timber is most likely to be encountered.

This WIS does not include consideration of modified woods, for which the manufacturer and/or distributor should be consulted.
