Abstract

In this study manufacturing Kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus L.) core particleboards
were carried out. Objective of this study was to evaluate the properties of Kenaf core
particleboard. All the boards were manufactured with three different densities of
500kgm-3t 600kgm-3 and 700kgm-3 at two percentages of urea formaldehyde which
are 8% and 10%. 30 boards were produced and cut to the dimension according to 3
types of test which includes physical, mechanical and acoustic. (Acoustic
characteristic was tested to evaluate the ability of Kenaf core particleboard to absorb
the noise in sound.) Based on the study it was found that the increase of resin
content and density caused an improvement in the mechanical and physical
properties of the boards. However it differs with its acoustic properties that show
that the lowest density shows an increase in acoustic properties while resin content
gives no significant effect towards the boards properties. This kind of board also had
it weakness in damp condition. Thus improvements towards moisture resistance
properties need to be done in further research to cover the lack in this particleboard
