Properties of particleboard from neolamarckia cadamba (kelempayan) / Ahmad Afiq Mat Zlan

Mat Zlan, Ahmad Afiq (2014) Properties of particleboard from neolamarckia cadamba (kelempayan) / Ahmad Afiq Mat Zlan. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


This study focus on alternative species to produce particleboard with the targeted density of 600 kg/m3. The wood species used is Kelempayan (Neolamarckia cadamba). The main objectives of this study are to determine the physical and mechanical properties of particleboard made from Kelempayan (Neolamarckia cadamba). The study was also done to evaluate the effect of particle size and resin content and on particleboard properties. The particle sizes are 1.0 mm, mix particles (1.0 mm with 2.0 mm) and 2.0 mm. The percentages of resin content are 8%, 10% and 12%. The modulus of rupture, modulus of elasticity, internal bonding, thickness swelling and water absorption of particleboard were determined according to Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS). As a result, the particleboard produced from Kelempayan made from 1.0 mm particle size and using 12% resin content was met the MOR, MOE and IB minimum requirement set by JIS Standard for general uses.
