  1. 1“CF” means “Commercial formulation” refers to a composition of a commercial adhesive using PF resin for plywood
  2. 2All the results are described in the previous paper [13]
  3. 3ANOVA for analysis of variance showed that the means are significantly different (p < 0.001). The same letter within a row are not significantly different as determined by Tukey’s test (p < 0.05)
  4. 4“PASS” means met the criteria of JAS
