The boards made by conventional hot gluing were marked as K and the boards made by HF gluing were marked as HF.
There are various processes occurring in laminate elements depending on the applied gluing procedure During the hot gluing, veneer layers warm up from outer layers towards the middle layers.
During HF gluing the warming of veneer layers is fast and almost equally over the whole cross section.
The thickness loss for laminate elements made by hot gluing was 1.
Because of the same reason the specimens made by hot gluing had 4 % lower humidity and 2 % higher density.
3 % for specimens made by hot gluing comparing to HF gluing.
Analysis of creep curves and models unknown parameters pointed out that the creep values depend on the duration time of gluing procedure.
Laminate elements made by HF gluing procedure had better rheological properties (smaller creep values), i.
