Abstract : The amount of water adsorption (WA) determines the dimensional stability of particleboard and flakeboard. Statistical regression models showed that WA is a function of exposure condition, resin type, and board specific gravity, as well as the thickness and slenderness ratio of the wood furnish. Those factors explained 95 percent of all variation in WA. (Author)
