The Hodges Wood Products Lab offers testing services including ASTM testing of solid and engineered wood products, NEMA LD3 & ISO 4586 testing of laminates, NALFA testing of laminate flooring, kiln drying, evaluation of environmental effects on wood products, and many more. We also provide assistance in evaluating product failure and production problems such as gluing and machining.
