Abstract

On-site survey on glue-laminated board (GLB) manufacturers of Malaysia, Indonesia, and China was conducted to identify the cause of interception of regulated pest from imported GLBs from those countries, and to suggest optimal manufacturing processes of GLB for preventing quarantine risk associated with imported GLBs. The cause of pest interception was improper manufacturing processes, such as air drying or inadequate kiln drying of green laminae, improper storage of dried laminae before finger jointing and edge gluing, and/or incomplete packing of GLBs. In particular, Paulownia GLB manufacturing processes used in China, including air drying of laminae, were mostly poor in terms of preventing quarantine risk associated with imported GLBs. From now on, for preventing quarantine risk associated with imported GLBs, importers have to ask foreign manufacturers spontaneously to use proper manufacturing processes (adequate kiln drying of green laminae, proper storage of dried laminae, and complete packaging of final GLBs).
