Abstract

COMPRESSED laminated (“ improved ”) wood is generally counted among the hardening laminated plastics; it is built up from a large number of very thin veneers (0.0–1.005 in.) which are arranged with parallel grain directions. With the use of thermosetting synthetic resins, the veneers are highly compressed between hot platens. The adhesive, normally of the Bakelite type, is also a strengthening agent, or, with material of high resin content and high density, the wood may be considered as more or less a carrier for the resin, the latter being in this case the main strength‐producing agent.
