In the study of high moisture resistant particleboard from bamboo (Gigantochloa scortechinil), three layer
melamine urea-formaldehyde particleboard was produced. Increasing core particle size does not
greatly affect the mechanical properties but improved the dimensional stability of the boards. Wax
addition increased the board stability towards water exposure but decreased the mechanical properties
of the boards. All boards surpassed the minimum requirement of the BS for the mechanical and
physical properties. Particles from three-year-oId Gigantochloa scortechinii was suitable for the making
of three-layer melamine urea-formaldehyde particleboard.
