It is my understanding that it is treated or soaked with copper salts.
Works well to protect the wood, however you can't use regular
galvanized screws or fasteners, ie joist hangers, joiners, hurrican
clips, because the copper causes severe electrolysis and corrosion
problems with the hardware, I have been warned that the hardware will
fail in a short period of time.
You will need to get more information from your supplier or contractor
for the construction. Carefully note any hardware requirements on the
new treated wood to avoid the above problem.

something else, at Lowes they're advised that they now have to
"rotate" the lumber, as the new lumber lasts about 4 months. 4
months?? Well apparently the process also has a mold inhibitor and
you have to rinse the wood off if it wears off. I asked during the
film if this meant the wood "wore out quicker" and was told no, and
the new coating was more golden and aged better, it just had to do
with the mold inhibitor. Much safer for raised beds with food plants
and children on play equipment.
