Commercializing kenaf core particleboard properties

  1. 1. Commercializing Kenaf Core Particleboard Properties By Nur ‘Izzati binti Ismail
  2. 2. Introduction This research focus on commercializing Kenaf (Hibiscus cannabinus L.) as a raw material. Properties of Kenaf are investigate in a form of particleboards These are the properties involved: ~Mechanical & Physical ~Thickness Swelling ~Acoustic properties
  3. 3. Background • A research was done by manufacturing samples of particleboards with a targeted densities of 500 kgm-3, 600kgm- 3 and 700kgm-3 • Each of the boards have a resin content of 8% and 10%.
  4. 4. Problem Statement • Decrease of wood resources from the forest • Lack of research on kenaf fiber properties • Data on kenaf fibers in Malaysia are hardly attainable • Noise disturbance in urban areas • Lack of particleboard usage from Kenaf
  5. 5. Method Kenaf Tree Cleaning Deterioration DryingBlendingMat forming Compressed Trimmed and Sanded
  6. 6. Analysis • 700kgm-3 is the strongest compare to other densities in modulus of rupture and modulus of elasticity and internal bonding • No significant differences between 8% and 10% boards. • Particleboard absorps more than 100% • Acoustic properties, boards that contain less urea formaldehye can absord more noise of a sound and improve the sound better.
  7. 7. Recommendations • More wax needed in each boards • Handle or go through properly to minimize possible errors that can happen while conducting the research. • Learn to manufacture boards made up from non-woody plants such as Kenaf or other materials • More research needs to be done on non-woven material in particleboard and compared with other materials that are as popular in the industry.
  8. 8. Conclusion • Kenaf particleboard has a high commercial value in which it can be polished into more capable material in the future. • Help many manufacturers to decrease their source material as Kenaf is a low cost material and can be easily obtain. • Can decrease the amount of getting more wood resources from the forest
