Title: Bottomland hardwoods for structual flakeboards

Author: Price, Eddie W.; Hse, Chung-Yun;

Date: 1983

Source: Forest Products Journal 33(11/12):33-40

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Seven species found growing in bottomland hardwood sites were evaluated for their potential in being utilized in a structural flakeboard. The evaluation process consisted of three phases of investigation. Phase I investigated properties of flakeboards fabricated with several flake lengths and thicknesses using all seven species. In Phase II, properties of panels made with single species and mixtures such as all high-density species, all low-density species, and combinations of high- and low-density species were obtained. For Phase III, an alternative flaker disk was used to generate flakes for panel fabrication. Phase III panels were fabricated with flakes generated from both heated and ambient temperature conditioned bolts. Also, powder and liquid phenolic resins were used in the Phase III investigation. The data indicated a panel with acceptable properties is technically feasible using several fabrication arrangements.
