DescriptionThis report discusses the screening of various adhesive and mastic systems for possible use in assembling lightweight wood containers. Results showed that dynamic tests of simulated box corners correlated reasonably well with rough handling evaluations of eight selected systems when used to assemble lightweight wood boxes made from a Group I container wood. Conventionally nailed specimens were used as the control. The impact tests, as well as the rough handling tests, showed that a system should exhibit a certain degree of resilience. Diagonal compression tests indicated that a system should possess minimum creep characteristics.
