Transcript of MANUFACTURED TIMBER
Laminated veneer lumber . . .
Laminated veneer lumber (LVL) is made by bonding fine sheets of veneer wood together into large sheets.
What property makes plywood and oriented strand board (OSB) suitable for structural wood paneling used in building construction?
-They are both strong, resistant and have panel dimension stability.
wood products. . .
Manufactured wood is a range of derivative wood products which are manufactured by binding or fixing the strands, particles, fibers, or veneers or boards of wood, together with adhesives, or other methods of fixation to form composite materials. Another name for manufactured wood is engineered wood.
Types of wood
used in manufactured wood products
Scraps and other wood waste can be used for engineered wood, some engineered wood products, like oriented strand board (OSB), can use trees from the poplar family, a common but non-structural species
Plywood. . .
Is made of thin sheets of veneer wood, cross laminate and cross oriented so its maximum strength. It is mounded together by high pressure and heat, they also use weather resistant glue.
Which two wood properties are considered important when innovating for new manufactured wood products?
- Looks good and is functional
- eco friendly
What makes LVL superior to many solid wood products? List some uses.
-replaces rafters, beams and joints
Which manufactured wood product is a good substitute for load bearing timber requiring wide spans, such as for use in multi-story buildings?
How is wood plastic composite made? List some uses.
Wood plastic composites are processed lumber or timber made out of recycled plastic and wood wastes. It is a non-pollution material that replaces the application of real wood. Wood Plastic Composites are extremely versatile and can be used in many applications such as commercial, agricultural, mining, civil, portable housing, marine and residential. Uses for Wood plastic composite are Decking, Park Furniture, Bollards, Post & Rail Systems, Screening, Parking Aid and much more!
How can using and substituting with wood products help address climate change?
HELPING CLIMATE CHANGE
By using and substituiting with wood products we are helping climate change because it plays a vitral role in reducing carbon emission and waste.
