We test different kind of wood materials used for furniture manufacturing: finished and in the rough particle board, finished and in the rough fiberboard, plywood, glues, adhesive bonds.

Under tests we can determine these properties:

Bending strength, Modulus of elasticity in bending according to EN 310:1993
This test method is detemines the apparent modulus of elasticity in flatwise bending and bending strength of wood-based panels of nominal thickness equal to or greater than 3 mm.

Surface soundness according to EN 311:2002
This test method is applied for coated wood-based panels and uncoated particle boards, wet and dry process fibreboards and cement bonded particle boards.

Tensile strength perpendicular to the plane of the board according to EN 319:1993
This test method is detemines the resistance to tension perpendicular to the plane of the board (“internal bond”) of particleboards, fibreboards, and cement-bonded particleboards.

Moisture content according to EN 322:1993
This test method is detemines the moisture content of test pieces of wood-based panels. Such result may be used to estimate the moisture content of wood-based panels according to EN 326-1.

Density according to EN 323:1993
This test method is detemines the density of test pieces of wood-based panels. Such result may be used to estimate the density of wood-based panels according to EN 326-1, clause 6.

Swelling in thickness after immersion in water according to EN 317:1993
This test method is detemines the swelling in thickness of flat-pressed or drum-pressed particleboards, fibreboards, and cement-bonded particleboards.

Bonding quality according to EN 314-1:2004
This test method is detemines the bonding quality of veneer plywood, blockboard and laminboard by shear testing. The relevant requirements are specified in EN 314 2.

Determination of tensile shear strength of lap joints according to EN 205:2003
This test mehod assess adhesives for wood and derived timber products of their resistance to hot and cold water. It can be used for the assessment of the strength of bonds with a thin or thick bond-line. It does not apply to adhesives for structural use nor to the manufacture of particle boards, fibreboards and plywood. It does not replace tests on finished products.
