English term or phrase: thickness swelling (and other wood panel terms)
the swelling of a wood-based panel. The context doesn't say what it is caused by, but it could be moisture, as the list also indicated moisture resistance.
Also: Medium Density Fibreboard and Oriented Strand Board. I am thinking of Mitteldichte Faserplatte and Faserplatte mit ausgerichteten Fasern, but there might be a standard term.

Laminate: leave as is, I suppose

Backward integrated panel =?Verbundplatte?

Explanation:
Holz schwillt, daher würde ich sagen, Schwellung ist ok. Medium Density Fibreboard is translated with Mitteldichte Faserplatte, just like you surmised, often abbreviated the same as it is in English: MDF.

As for Oriented Strand Board, it doesn't seem to be translated, rather its abbreviation and 'Platte' is used: OSB-Platte (see URL). 'Laminate 'is 'Laminat' (< http://dict.leo.org/?search=laminate&lang=en>).

As for 'backward integrated panel', I don't think that's Verbundplatte as that is a very generic term (under which MDF and OSB fall, as well), my suggestion here is 'Rückseitig integrierte Platte', indicating that somehow it is integrated with the backerboard.

Cheerio,
Dierk
