This International Standard specifies the requirements for Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) for general purposes and structural applications, in dry, tropical-dry/humid or high humidity/exterior conditions. Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) is a general description for an assembly of veneers laminated with an adhesive in which the grain direction of the outer veneers and most other veneers is in the longitudinal direction.
This International Standard specifies requirements for
- the quality of veneers,
- bond durability,
- tolerances on dimensions, and
- structural characterization.
Characteristic values, to be used for design purposes, are based on testing and evaluation of laminated veneer lumber.
