Wood-based panels – Determination of characteristic 5 percentile values and characteristic mean values

This standard gives methods for calculating characteristic values following the determination of mechanical properties under EN 789.  The values calculated are the 5 percentile values and the characteristic mean values.  Along with EN 789, these are referenced in the harmonised European standard EN 13986 for wood-based panel products.
