Abstract : Housing is the greatest single demand for wood in the United States. Projected trends show an increasing demand for wood in the years ahead to add new dwellings, replace old ones, and repair and improve existing dwellings. It is important to develop more efficient building practices, such as those provided by adhesive technology. Ideally, user needs will be supplied at a high level while at the same time our timber resources are conserved. This handbook is designed to serve as a guide to efficient use of adhesives for building construction. It is intended for architects, engineers, contractors, builders, building supply dealers, code officials, and others who may have limited experience with wood and adhesive technology. While the primary emphasis is on adhesive bonding of wood and wood-based materials to each other in light-frame construction, the handbook also includes the bonding of wood to other construction materials.
