Mill Trial Borate-treated GlulamCompleted

Project leaders: Feng, Martin
 

Objective:

Demonstrate the feasibility of mill production of borate-treated glulam using a commercial phenol-resorcinol-formaldehyde resin and a PRF modifier. This research will:

  • Conduct a mill trial producing borate-treated glulam using a commercial PRF resin and a PRF modifier;
  • Test the product performance against ASTM D 2559-92;
  • Evaluate the suitability of current glulam manufacturing processes for the production of borate-treated glulam;
  • Develop glulam that has improved fire-retardant and /or biological-resistant properties;
  • Test the suitability of botates for glulam; Open new markets for the use of glulam.

Start date: 2003-04-01 End date: 2004-03-31
