“I am curious to know if any current technology could be adapted to apply a powdered phenol-formaldehyde resin to wood strands. The adhesion would have to be such that the powdered resin would remain on the strand as it suffers about an 8′ drop. In addition, the strand would have to be thoroughly coated on both sides. Any information on this would be helpful.”


“Due to the lack of an earth ground in the non-conductive wood strand, it would not be appropriate to use electrostatic powder applicators for this process. Powder equipment has been used in a variety of non-finishing applications with some success. But this application probably will not work because of the eight foot drop immediately after application of the material.”
