M.N. Islam, A.A. Mahfuz, M.O. Hannan and M.A. Islam

Abstract:
A study was conducted to evaluate the feasibility of using dhaincha (Sesbania aculeata) for particleboard manufacturing. The physical and mechanical properties of dhaincha particleboard were examined to assess its quality. It was found that the density of dhaincha particleboard was 602 kg m-3, the modulus of rupture was 154 kg cm-2, the modulus of elasticity was 21649 kg cm-2, the tensile strength was 9.3 kg cm-2, screw withdrawal capacity was 81 kg in edge and 82 kg in face, the surface soundness was 16 kg cm-2, the percentage swelling in thickness were 1.8 after 2 h and 9.5 after 24 h, the percentage swelling in width were 0.42 after 2 h and 0.67 after 24 h, the percentage of swelling in length were 0.35 after 2 h and 0.66 after 24 h, the absorption of water were 26.8 after 2 h and 69.49% after 24 h, the moisture content after curing was 6.5% for dhaincha particleboard. Therefore, dhaincha can be an alternative raw material for the particleboard industries.
