    Q:Is this "ISPM 15" stamped wood that can be used for international shipping?

    Answer This Question

    A:  i'm not sure-but for international shipping check with a company that does that. you may need kiln dried lumber-the kiln/heat process kills an insects, like the Asian beetle and it's larvae

      A:  This material should contain a stamp on it containing “KD19HT.” The “HT” signifies the material meets the heat treatment criteria to be ISPM-15 compliant. The stamp will also carry an accredited grading agency logo. That helps ensure the actual quality of the product. For pressure treatment we require KD19 material which means it is kiln dried to 19% moisture content. The drying process to achieve that requirement meets the minimum HT requirement for ISPM-15 which is holding the internal temperature of the core of the piece of lumber at 133 degrees F or higher for 30 minutes. The pressure treatment of the product does not have any impact on meeting ISPM-15.

        A:  Follow local building code, and consult with your official for size and number of screws or nails needed. Be sure to use hot-dipped galvanized or stainless steel, or those that meet ASTM A153 for code purposes.
