The effect of natural durability on the decay resistance of particleboard and solid wood of some West African hardwoods



The effect of natural durability on the decay resistance of particleboard and solid wood of some West African hardwoods



Proceedings, 15th Annual Conference of the Forestry Association of Nigeria, Yola, 25-29 November, 1985: 269-280



Twenty-two West African lowland forest tree species were classified into 4 relative resistance groups. Particleboards were manufactured from mixed flakes of the species in each resistance group, and their decay resistance was evaluated. Statistical analysis of wt. losses showed differences between the behaviour of particleboard and solid wood.
