→Used to determine the apparent modulus of elasticity in flatwise bending and bending strength of wood-base panels.
→Used in mechanical properties test for various woods, wood-based panels, including: plywood, particle board, fibreboard, OSB (oriented structural board), cement-bonded particleboard, multi-ply parquets, bamboo flooring,MDF, decorative veneered wood-based panels, resin impregnated paper overlaid wood-based panels, laminated flooring.
→3-point bending test
