Abstract

Bambusa vulgaris taken from the riverside of Sg. Benus, Bentong, Pahang was found to be suitable in the manufacture of (WCB). It contains a high amount of sugars and was found to have a retarding effect on cement setting. In the study, higher cement ratio gives better board properties. Board with a bamboocement ratio of 1:2.75 with the addition of 2% chemical additives produces an acceptable board which meets the requirements of the Malaysian Standard MS934.
