Testing of wood and wood derivatives

Ensayos a madera y derivados

We carry out wood characterisation studies. We bring our technological know-how and experience spanning more than 25 years to the construction sector and the timber industry.

We develop detailed quality control plans for wood products.

Our technical teams carry out typified tests in standards or customised tests adapted to each product and project.

Services

Our services cover the following assessments and certification:

  • Assessment of performance in accordance with EN, ISO, UNE, DIN, NF, BS, standards etc. and customer procedures.
  • Compulsory and voluntary certification: CE marking, drafting of ETAs under the Construction Product Regulation 305/2011.

We characterise and classify the physical – mechanical properties of:

Wood

Physical-mechanical properties: bending resistance, tensile strength, hardness, wood shrinkage, moisture content, specific weight, control of chemical treatment, etc.

Boards and derivatives

Physical-mechanical properties: density, dimensional stability, bending and tensile strength resistance, start-up of connectors, resistance to humidity following cyclical tests, water absorption, etc.

Wooden floors

Physical-mechanical properties: geometric characteristics, dimensional stability, moisture content, Brinell hardness, abrasion resistance, etc.

Structural wood

Classification and physical – mechanical properties: bending resistance, assignment of the resistance classification, determination of the quality of gluing, etc.

Fire performance tests

  • Reaction and resistance to fire.
  • Smoke toxicity.

Chemical Tests

  • Formaldehyde emission.
  • Treatment control
  • Sand Content.
  • Analysis of adhesives, varnishes, etc.

Aimed at:

  • Manufacturers and importers of wood and wood derivatives
  • Manufacturers and importers of wooden floors
  • Sawmills and structural timber companies Wood treatment companies
