Abstract

In this study, plywood and reinforced plywood with glass fiber fabric were produced with rotary peeled poplar veneers using phenol formaldehyde adhesive. Screw and nail holding tests were conducted to obtain the characteristics of the plywood and reinforced plywood boards. One control group and three different test groups were used. The effects of glass fiber fabric on the screw direct withdrawal, screw-head pull-through, and lateral nail resistance were determined. The results of the tests indicated that the reinforced plywood’s resistances to direct withdrawal of the screw, screw-head pull-through, and lateral nail resistance were significantly higher than those of the unreinforced plywood. In addition, reinforcement of the plywood boards provided longer displacement at maximum load.
