Can you check moisture content of particle board or wafer board with handheld moisture meters?
Because of the glues and mixed species nature of these materials, it is very difficult to take reliable readings with pin-type or Wagner Meters Handheld Moisture Meters.
Note: However, if you would like to work up your own meter calibrations for materials you use repetitively, you can contact Wagner Meters for guidelines and suggestions.
