LVL and PSL manufactured elsewhere, made of rubber wood (Hevea brasiliensis) using exterior type adhesive have been evaluated for strength properties in air-dry conditions. These products were manufactured and supplied to this laboratory by a private industry located in Karnataka, India. LVL has shown improved strength properties as compared to solid rubberwood and teak. Comparision of strength values of PSL have been made with those of LVL, solid rubber wood and standard teak. The results show that PSL has slightly lower values of strength properties compared to teak, solid rubber wood and quite inferior to that of LVL. On the basis of the data obtained, LVL and PSL made out of rubber wood can be utilized as a structural material for different purposes like door and window frames, rigs and trusses.
