Wood Working Tips - Understanding the Term "Extractive Bleeding": Cedar and Redwood contain high levels of water soluble tannins that help give the wood their natural decay resistant qualities. Tannins become active and bleed to the wood surface when the surface has been penetrated or if there has been a drastic change in weather conditions. This is called extractive bleeding. When this occurs, tannins can cause visible staining if they contact bare steel, galvanized steel, or finishes such as latex stains or paints at the wood surface where the bleeding originates. Extractive bleeding cannot be prevented or controlled. The use of Ceramic Coated Screws and Stainless Steel Deck Screws greatly reduces the risk of staining. These fasteners prevent extractive bleeding through the use of corrosion resistant materials and finishes.
