dc.description.abstractThis investigation focuses on the production, strength properties, and marketability of a new ultra stiff wood composite. The basis of the examination is to compare strength properties such as, Modulus of Rupture, Modulus of Elasticity, Work to Max Load, and Density with currently available products. The final analysis of the ultra stiff product suggested that this product would compete favorably in today’s market due to the strength properties of the product. Although the current hot-pressing method is not economical for mass production, other ways of pressing can be utilized. It is noted in this research that the wood moisture content can influence MOE, MOR, and density properties. By manipulating and controlling the press cycle and the moisture content, a competitive product was produced.
