Title: Initial test of large panels of structural flakeboard from southern hardwoods

Author: Price, Eddie W.;

Date: 1975

Source: In: Proc. Ninth Particleboard Symp., Wash. State Univ., Pullman, Wash. p.145-149

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: A strong structural exterior flakeboard from mixed southern hardwoods has been developed on a laboratory scale; the problem is transfer of the technique to pilot-plant scale in the manufacture of 4- by 8-ft panels. From the pilot-plant trial here reported, it is concluded that a specific platen pressure of at least 575 psi and a hot press closing time of about 45 seconds is required to make a 1/2-in.-thick panel (with random flake orientation throughout) having modulus of elasticity of 700,000 psi.
