Abstract: This study summarizes the results of Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) made from bagasse using urea formaldehyde as a binder agent and without binding agent. Important physical and mechanical properties were examined. The density of MDF bagasse with binding agent and without binding agent was respectively 0.90 and 0.87 g cm-3. The Modulus of Rupture (MOR) of MDF bagasse with binding agent and without binding agent was 44.98 and 34.94 N mm-2 respectively. The Modulus of Elasticity (MOE) was 3532.34 and 3454.28 N mm-2 respectively for UF bonded bagasse MDF and without binding agent bagasse MDF. Board with addition of binding agent showed higher performance than that of without binding agent board for both physical and mechanical properties. But both kind of board followed the standard and also showed better quality than that of the previous studies. There is a possibility of using MDF of bagasse for both types as a substitute of MDF made from other agricultural residues.
