Abstract

This research was carried out to study the properties of homogenous particle from
Eucalyptus pellita in relation to press-time and density bounded with urea formaldehyde
(UF). There are several fixed parameters used like 340mm x 340mm x 12mm board size,
12% of resin content and heating temperature at 165°c. The particleboards were
manufactured with 500kg/m3, 600kg/m3 and 700kg/m3 density of board and 4,5 and 6
minutes press-time. 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
high press-time produced better properties of board. This study found that Eucalyptus
pellita can be an alternative new raw material in particleboard production
