Structural engineered wood products and adhesives survey
Engineered wood products (EWPs) are used extensively in construction overseas and are gaining increased interest in NZ. BRANZ is undertaking research in this area to gain a better insight into structural EWPs by those in the NZ construction industry who are using them. The results from this survey will also be used to inform current BRANZ research which is investigating the long-term durability of structural adhesives used in EWPs. BRANZ is also giving away one of five $100 Prezzy cards. www.research.net/r/BRANZ-EWP
