Abstract

The present study investigated the suitability of thirteen different progenies of Melia composita for general purpose (interior grade) plywood. Plywood were prepared using urea formaldehyde adhesives and evaluated for their suitability for general purpose interior grade plywood. It was observed that the general purpose plywood (interior grade) made out of all the thirteen progenies meet the IS specification. The plywood made of progeny no. 104 performed best in modulus of rupture and modulus of elasticity along and across the grain of plywood, followed by progeny no. 28, 75 and 76. The plywood made of progeny 28 and 76 were performed best in dry and wet state glue shear strength.
