Evaluating Properties of Wood-Base Fiber and Particle Panel Materials ASTM 1037

Evaluating Properties of Wood-Base Fiber and Particle Panel Materials ASTM 1037

ASTM D1037 contains different test methods for identifying the properties such as size and appearance to tensile, compression, shear strength, water absorption, hardness and fastener holding of wood-base fiber and particle panel materials. These test methods result in the desired physical and mechanical properties of the wood material.


    ASTM D1037 contains various test methods and specifications designed to determine the properties of wood-based fiber and particle panel materials. The materials include mat formed panels like medium density fiberboard, oriented strand board, hardboard and particleboard. The properties of wood-base fiber and particle pane materials range from appearance and size to tensile, shear strength and compression, water absorption, hardness and fastener holding. 

    These test methods provide data for comparison of the physical and mechanical properties of different materials. Also, they support by providing data to manufacture control, specification acceptance and product research and development. The relevant products for these test methods are lumber and wood-based structural materials.

    Test Procedure:

    The following test procedures are specified by ASTM D1037:

    • Accelerated Aging
    • Static Bending
    • Tension perpendicular to the surface
    • Tension Parallel to Surface
    • Nail Withdrawal
    • Lateral Nail Resistance
    • Direct Screw Withdrawal
    • Nail-Head Pull-Through
    • Shear if the Plan of the Panel
    • Hardness
    • Glue
