Atanu Kumar Das, Lakshmi Rani Mondal and Md. Iftekhar Shams    

Abstract: This study was under taken to identify the physical and mechanical properties of kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus) MDF and to evaluate the potential of kenaf MDF in Bangladesh. Properties were compared with market MDF in Bangladesh. Physical and mechanical properties were examined. The density of kenaf MDF and market MDF were respectively, 0.73 and 0.72 g cm-3. The MOR of kenaf and market MDF was 44.97 and 40.65 N mm-2, respectively. The MOE for kenaf and market MDF was 3786 and 3518 N mm-2, respectively. The physical and mechanical properties of kenaf MDF were better than market MDF. The kenaf MDF followed the standard and it can be a good source of raw material for MDF industries.
