Properties of wood and pulp were evaluated for their effects on dry-formed, medium-density hardboard. The properties of wood included specific gravity and length of fiber; of pulp, fiber length index, lignin content, pH, and bulk density of the mat; and the properties of hardboard, strength, dimensional stability, and water absorption. An alkaline-curing phenolic resin was used as the binder.
