Turpentine

Turpentine is durability class 1 for both above and in-ground contact and is resistant to lyctus attack. It is the preferred Australian species for marine piling as its high silica content makes it resistant to Teredinidae marine borers.

It can be abrasive to machine cutters and tools due to the presence of silica and it readily accepts paint, stain and polish.

Turpentine can be used unseasoned as sawn or round timber in wharf and bridge construction and other outdoor infrastructure projects. It can be used as seasoned timber for cladding, internal and external flooring, lining and decking.
