This report discusses the evaluation of some wood-base panel products used for decks in a nine-block design pallet. Included were experimental hardboards from used pallets, from virgin aspen fiber, as well as a commercial hardboard, a commercial particleboard, and an experimental particleboard. Deck materials used for controls included plywood and knifecut veneer. The plywood pallets were the lightest. The nailing characteristics of all deck materials generally were satisfactory. The commercial hardboard showed good resistance to impacts from a fork truck equipped with conventional forks. Author
