Greenweld is a gluing process that can join pieces of sawn timber while still green (ie before drying and planing). The advantage is that the joined product only has to be dried and planed once. Any movement during drying is corrected during planing. Dried and dressed timber previously required a second pass through the planer to correct any imperfections created in the drying process.


Do not need to dry timber before gluing.


Potential is obvious for timber manufacturers to assess.
