Strength of furniture joints constructed with biscuits
This investigation was conducted to evaluate the strength of the middle and corner joints made with wood and plastic biscuits, and to determine the effects of bonding technique and type of the composite board (particleboard, medium density fiberboard) on the joints fastened with biscuit connectors. The results indicated that MDF bonded or unbonded middle and corner joints were stronger than the similar joints made with particleboard. The strength of both middle and corner joints bonded with polyurethane adhesive (Knapp PU+) was higher than the similar joints bonded with PVAc adhesives. The results also indicated that the joint strength comes mainly from the bonding on edge of the connected boards and not from the bonded biscuits.
