Abstract : In the production of composites from comminuted wood, the adhesive performs under conditions which appear to be different from conventional gluing procedures. Actually, the parameters are the same but in different, and sometimes extreme degree. The adhesive also responds in the same way but in an invisible manner, making causal observations difficult. A number of conditions and responses are examined and their implications to the efficiency of the process noted. (Author)
