Abstract : Thick particleboards made from pulp chip cores were evaluated as possible roof decking material. Several fabrication variables and various kinds and combinations of face construction were investigated. Results are presented of evaluations of stiffness and strength in flexure, resistance to accelerated aging, internal bond strength, and dimensional changes from ovendry to soaked conditions.
