DescriptionA strong structural exterior flakeboard from mixed southern hardwoods has been developed on a laboratory scale; the problem is transfer of the technique to pilot-plant scale in the manufacture of 4- by 8-ft panels. From the pilot-plant trial here reported, it is concluded that a specific platen pressure of at least 575 psi and a hot press closing time of about 45 seconds is required to make a 1/2-in.-thick panel (with random flake orientation throughout) having modulus of elasticity of 700,000 psi.
