In the present work, an experiment was designed and conducted with one treatment factor and one blocking factor for Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) and analyzed to investigate the effect of three different curing temperatures with four different batches of resin for abrasion resistance of the laminated board surface. Curing temperature as treatment factor and batch of the raw material which was a resin as blocking factor were considered for this experiment. Abrasion resistances were measured with four levels of replication with randomly selected samples. Data analysis was done using SAS software for ANOVA test. Results of abrasion resistance values for 12 wood species used for flooring were analyzed and found that the curing temperature influences the abrasion resistance. Also found that the resin used in the process influences the abrasion resistance. By blocking the resin batches in the experiment, temperature influence on the abrasion resistance was analyzed.
