Lamination and Wood Panels
The Rolling Laboratory and Wood Panels - LLAPAM houses a pilot plant for experimental production, plywood, LVL (Laminated Veneer Lumber), MDP (Medium Density Particleboard), OSB (Oriented Strand Board) and other types of panels base woods. The LLAPAM aims to provide a suitable environment for conducting research on the quality of raw materials for the production of wood-based panels, optimizing the variables of production processes and the development of new products. The evaluation of the physico-mechanical properties of the products obtained in LLAPAM is held at the Mechanical Testing Laboratory of Wood and Derivatives - LEMMAD.
The LLAPAM support in the fields of teaching and research students of the course of Forest Engineering (undergraduate) and the Program of Graduate Studies in Forest Resources (Masters and PhD) of ESALQ / USP, as well as students from other institutions through partnerships in the development of projects and internships. Additionally, in harmony with these other activities, it supports the development of analyzes, studies and research projects demanded by product industries wood-based, non-associated and associated IPEF - Institute of Forestry Research and Studies.
