Abstract

We live in a world where wood products are hard to ignore. The sheer flexibility in the number of applications where the wood is used means that it is one of the most sought resources in the world. The wood products industry faces challenges in promoting sustainable management of forest resources. Composite materials have advantage of having an optimized performance, minimized weight and volume, cost effectiveness, chemical resistance and resistance to biodegradation. The research in this paper is focused on sago particles with adhesive of low emission urea formaldehyde (UF) resin 51.6% solid content. The fabrication and testing method are based on JIS A 5908 standard. A single-layer particleboard by using the sago particles has been established at targeted density level 600kg/m3. Particles with weight fractions of 90%, 85%, 80%, 75% and 70% were used in the fabrication of sago composite boards. The results of the test demonstrated that the samples with different weight fraction and size have great influence on the mechanical properties like: MOR, screw test and internal bonding. The findings had demonstrated that the level of weight fraction and size had affects the performance of a board. At the next stage of the research the comparison between sago and wood particleboard will be carried out to identify the feasibility of these materials in the industrial application.
