Wood properties vary greatly among species, between trees of the same species, and between pieces from the same tree. Because of this variation, solid wood cannot match reconstituted wood in the range of properties that can be controlled in processing.

This course is intended to provide the student with an understanding of the different types of wood-based composites and panel products and the processing considerations for these products.

Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Adhesive Considerations
  • Plywood Processing and Manufacturing Considerations
  • Particle and Fiber Composites
  • Wood-Nonwood Composites

Certificate of Completion

You will be able to immediately print a certificate of completion after passing a multiple-choice quiz consisting of 15 questions. PDH credits are not awarded until the course is completed and quiz is passed.
