Dimensional stability of board materials

Dimensional stability of board materialsSP can test dimensional stability and moisture-dependent movement on most materials and after different standards.Testing is usually done according to EN 1910 (Wood flooring and wood panelling and cladding - Determination of dimensional stability) and EN 318 (Wood-based panels - Determination of dimensional changes associated with changes in relative humidity). The materials may include various types of flooring as laminate or parquet, but also wet room boards, benchtops or other wood based boards.
