Presentacion Mision Tecnologica

  1. 1. New Zealand Timber Industry Federation <ul><li>Presentation for </li></ul><ul><li>Chilean Visitors </li></ul>
  2. 2. Radiata Pine <ul><li>New Zealand timber industry based largely on Radiata Pine – Douglas Fir a minor species. </li></ul><ul><li>Similar to Chile where Radiata Pine is the predominant commercial species. </li></ul><ul><li>New Zealand domestic market is a major consumer of timber </li></ul>
  3. 3. NZ Timber Production <ul><li>2007 Timber production 4.3 mill m 3 </li></ul><ul><li> Timber export 2.0 mill m 3 </li></ul><ul><li> Timber consumption 2.3 mill m 3 </li></ul><ul><li>This does not include consumption of roundwood or the small volume of imported timber. </li></ul>
  4. 4. NZ Market Timber Use <ul><li>House construction and alterations. </li></ul>
  5. 5. NZ Market Timber Use <ul><li>Outdoor uses </li></ul>
  6. 6. NZ Market Timber Use <ul><li>Parklands </li></ul>
  7. 7. NZ Market Timber Use <ul><li>INFRASTRUCTURE </li></ul>Bridge Jetty Retaining Wall
  8. 8. NZ Market Timber Use <ul><li>HORTICULTURE </li></ul>Vineyard Kiwi Fruit Glass House
  9. 9. NZ Market Timber Use <ul><li>AGRICULTURE </li></ul>Stockyard Farm Fencing Deer Fence
  10. 10. Structural Timber <ul><li>New Zealand timber is graded for end use. </li></ul><ul><li>Structural timber must meet strength and stiffness requirements set out in standards, NZS 3603:1993 Amendment 4. </li></ul><ul><li>The timber can be visually graded or machine stress graded. </li></ul><ul><li>Typical house construction grades: </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>20.0 MPa 10.0 GPa VSG/MSG 10 14.0 MPa 8.0 GPa VSG/MSG 8 Bending Strength Average Stiffness
  11. 11. Grades are Verified <ul><li>Almost all timber used in construction is verified for structural properties. </li></ul><ul><li>There is a NZ standard, NZS 3622, that sets out the verification requirements. </li></ul><ul><li>Verification is conducted on a load testing machine. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Load Testing Machine
  13. 13. Consumer Protection <ul><li>Verification is conducted by independent agencies such as Verified Timber Ltd. </li></ul><ul><li>Auditors check all records maintained by sawmillers to ensure the standard is maintained. </li></ul><ul><li>Timber that is verified for structural properties can be recognised by a brand. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
  14. 14. Timber Preservation <ul><li>Radiata Pine is the world’s most treatable timber. </li></ul><ul><li>Timber preservative can readily penetrate into the sapwood. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
  15. 15. Treated Timber Uses <ul><li>Protected from the weather; e.g. house framing. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Treated Timber Uses <ul><li>Outdoor out of ground </li></ul>
  17. 17. Treated Timber Uses <ul><li>Outdoor in ground </li></ul>
  18. 18. Treated Timber Uses <ul><li>Critical use in ground </li></ul>
  19. 19. Treated Timber Uses <ul><li>Marine use </li></ul>
  20. 20. Standards Compliance <ul><li>Standard NZS 3640 sets out timber treatment requirements for each hazard class: </li></ul><ul><li>Independent third party quality assurance such as WOODmark ® ensure that the standard is maintained. </li></ul>Marine applications H6 Critical uses in ground H5 In ground contact H4 Outdoor out of ground contact H3.1/H3.2 Protected from weather H1.1/H1.2
  21. 21. Standards Compliance <ul><li>Every licensed plant visited four times a year: </li></ul><ul><li>- Treatment records inspected. </li></ul><ul><li>- Samples taken for laboratory analysis. </li></ul>
  22. 22. Treated Timber Q.A. <ul><li>Every licensed plant must comply with: </li></ul><ul><li>- Treatment standards. </li></ul><ul><li>- Quality procedures. </li></ul><ul><li>- Health and safety. </li></ul><ul><li>- Environmental protection. </li></ul>
  23. 23. Consumer Protection <ul><li>Timber and roundwood treated under the WOODmark ® programme can be recognised by the brand. </li></ul>168 11 H1.2 Plant Preservative Hazard WOODmark ® N o N o Class
  24. 24. We believe that the quality assurance systems described build confidence in the use of timber in construction and that such systems would be beneficial in the development of a domestic market in Chile as well. Gracias
