An experiment was conducted to find out the strength properties and dimmsfonal
stability of particleboard using waste wood and planer shavings Collected from Bangladesh
Forest Industries Development Corporaholt (Bl-1 DC). Waste WOod were converted in in chips.
Particleboards were fabricated at fhe different ratios of wood chips and planer shaving such as
100:0, 75:25, 50:50, 25:75, and 0:100, Results show (hat particleboards made from 100% planer
shavings have good static bending properties : 143 kg/cm2) and excellent tensile strength
(13 kg/cuv). Both the values satisfy the Indian and British standard. Tilt1 percentage of
thickness swelling and water absorption were measured a tier 2 and 24 hours soaking in water,
lowest thickness swelling and water absorption were found in the board made of 100% planer
shavings. Particleboa ids made from 75% and 50% planer shavings also satisfy the Indian
standard. It is concluded that planer shavings from different wood based industries can he
used for making conventional partiilebuard of high strength properties.
