Description"Reconstituted" describes a family of panel products made from fractionated oak, bonded with either a synthetic resin or a natural lignin bond. Several current commercial fiber panel products from oak are described, and the status of research on experimental products and processes is presented. Recent technological developments are removing the stigma associated with the use of oak as raw material for reconstituted panel products. It is probable that in the future reconstituted panels will be manufactured by a dry rather than a wet process.
