The timber products processing industry encompasses manufacturers and processors who use

forest materials to produce their goods and merchandise. Fifteen distinct subcategories of

manufacturers and/or processors are engaged in the utilization of timber. This chapter addresses three major subsections of the entire industry: (a) wood preserving, both steaming and Boulton

processes; (b) insulation board manufacturing; and (c) both wet-wet (S1S or smooth one side)

and wet-dry (S2S or smooth two side) hardboard manufacturing.
