"A series of tests on one sheet each of MDF and Moisture Resistant MDF has been carried out by TWP to provide data for comparison with data held by the manufacturer. To reduce the effect of within-sheet variation of properties, three times the number of test coupons required by applicable Standards were prepared and tested. A duplicate set of coupons was prepared from the same two sheets for testing by the maufacturer. For the sake of completeness (and from curiosity), some addtional tests - Minnesota shear, water absorption, transverse flexure and extra screw withdrawal tests - were carried out."--p. 2.
