ASTM D1037

Full Name

ASTM D1037 – Standard Test Methods for Evaluating Properties of Wood-Base Fiber and Particle Panel Materials


Part A – General Test Methods for Evaluating the Basic Properties of Wood-Base Fiber and Particle Panel Materials

These test methods cover the determination of the properties of wood-base fiber and particle panel materials that are produced as mat-formed panels such as particleboard, medium-density fiberboard, hardboard, and oriented strand board.

Part B – Acceptance and Specification Test Methods for Hardboard

The methods for Part B provide test procedures for measuring the following properties of hardboard:

  • Section Thickness
  • Modulus of Rupture
  • Tension Strength Parallel to Surface
  • Tension Strength Perpendicular to Surface
  • Water Absorption and Thickness Swelling
  • Moisture Content
  • Specific Gravity
