Determination of Bending Strength Elongation in Bending Screw Withdrawal Strength and Swelling in Thickness of Some Panels

M.H. Colakoglu

Abstract:
This study is conducted to determine and compare some physical and mechanical properties of different panels being used in furniture industry. For this aim, test samples from plastic-based new wood and wood-based particleboard and MDF panels are prepared according to TS EN 326-1. The bending strength and elongation in bending is measured according to TSE EN 310, screw withdrawal strength according to TS EN 320 and swelling in thickness according to TS EN 317. As a result, the strength in bending was the highest in MDF (877.0 N mm-2) and the lowest in particle board (542.8 N mm-2). The elongation in bending was the highest in new wood (34.01 mm) and the lowest in particle board (5.65 mm). The screw withdrawal strength was the highest in MDF (822.48 N mm-2) and the lowest in new wood (632.47 N mm-2). Swelling in thickness due to water absorption was the highest in particle board (4.44 mm) and the lowest in new wood (0.02). According to these results, water absorption was the lowest but elongation in bending was the highest in new wood. These properties must be taken into account in the selection of material at design.
