Biographical entry Coleman, J. D.
J. D. Coleman invented a process known as Scrimber in the 1970s. In it small logs, such as radiata pine thinnings, are crushed between rollers to form long inter-connected strands, dried and then reconstituted as long sections after addition of a binding resin and hot pressing.
