The development of new wood based materials, including certain wood composites and wood plastic composites, creates some challenges in testing decay resistance. Testing these new materials according to the current version of D2017 may lead to inaccurate test results. Standard AWPA E10 has already been revised to accommodate recommendations with respect to testing wood composites and wood plastic composites.
