Abstract

This research was carried out to study the properties of hybrid particleboard
from Eucalyptus pellita and coconut husk fiber in relation to density and ratio
bounded with melamine urea formaldehyde (MUF). The fixed parameters
used for particleboard making in this study were thickness of the board (12
mm), type of resin (MUF) and resin content (12%). The particleboards were
manufactured with 500kglm3 and 700kglm3 density of board and fiber ratio is
50:50, 70:30 and 100:0 (Eucalyptus pellita : coconut husk fiber). The board
were evaluated for bending test (Modulus of Elasticity and Modulus of
Rupture), internal bonding (IB), thickness swell (TS) and water absorption
(WA) according to Malaysian Standard (MS). Board with higher density and
ratio 70:30 (Eucalyptus pellita : coconut husk fiber) shows better properties
of board among all. This study found that hybrid coconut husk fiber and
Eucalyptus pellita can be an alternative in particleboard production
