DIN 52376
Testing of plywood - Determination of compression strength parallel to the surfaces

Title (German)

Prüfung von Sperrholz - Bestimmung der Druckfestigkeit parallel zur Plattenebene


This standard specifies a method for determining the compressive strength of plywood parallel to the surfaces. The method is suitable for plywood from 7 mm thickness. Most test methods for wood-based materials are available as European standards. However, the determination of the compressive strength of plywood has not yet been standardized at European level. Compared to DIN 52376:1978-11, European standards for the determination of dimensions and moisture content as well as for sampling have been taken into account. In addition, European standards for plywood types have been taken into account and the structure adapted to current design rules. This standard has been prepared by DIN committee NA 042-02-15 AA "Holzwerkstoffe - Spiegelausschuss zu CEN/TC 112 und ISO/TC 89" ("Wood-based panels - Mirror Committee of CEN/TC 112 and ISO/TC 89") at DIN Standards Committee Timber and Furniture.
