Veneers and veneering
This thesis is a report of an investigation for a substitute for wood veneer to be used as face material for wire-bound boxes. The fiberboard substitute was made using a heavy paper backing with a wood waste mixture of chips and sawdust with various types of adhesive binders. The following adhesives were used singly and in mixtures: Starch, sodium silicate, asphalt emulsion, animal glue, urea resin with a wheat flour extender, rosin, and casein. The composition and test results of the fiberboard panels made in the laboratory are reported.
