Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)
Description: This report is for those who use or may want to use wood particleboard. The term bparticleboardc is used as defined in the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) Standard D 1554, which includes flakeboards as a subclass of particleboards, and not as used in the lumber trade where the term is usually reserved for panels made of fine wood particles such as sawdust and planer shavings. Types and grades of particleboard are described and discussed in relation to end uses as nonstructural underlayment, stair tread, shelving, furniture, core material, cabinetry, structural sheathing, subflooring and combination subfloor/underlayment, and siding. The structural panels used in light-frame construction are primarily flakeboards.
