The only thing I know about it is that it is mentioned on the American
Wood Preservers Institute's home page at
This home page contains about 11 pages worth of text geiving general
information about treated wood.
They mention Chromated Copper Arsenate (CCA)
Ammoniacal Copper Quat (ACQ) - Is this the same as ammonia copper
Ammoniacal Copper Zinc Arsenate (ACZA)
as water borne preservatives.
I guess I will have to try to get some more information on ACQ.
Thanks for the information.

alternative to the chromated copper arsenate pressure treated product for
