It is a safe to use with any type of pressure treated framing provides excellent head-setting results, with a smaller, less obtrusive head.
Most manufacturers of composite decking will provide guidance for their product for proper installation. If sufficient pre-drilling and countersink drilling is performed, any standard fastener will seat on the decking without compressing it (resulting in mushrooming).

Often, products that eliminate the need to pre-drill produce a cleaning looking finish with less visible screws.
