Abstract

Mixed hardwood particles were used in the manufacture of urea-formaldehyde
particleboard. Three different resin contents (8, 10
and 12%) and 1% wax content were used in the study. The target
density was 700 kgm-3
. Increasing resin content resulted in an
increase in the mechanical and dimensional properties of the
particleboard. Wax addition improved the dimensional stability of
the particleboard. However, all particleboards failed in their.
thickness swelling exceeding the 8% benchmark as stipulated in the
British standards.
