Processing of Low Formaldehyde MDF Using Renewable Wood ResinCompleted

Project leaders: Sain, Mohini
 

Objective:

Develop medium density fibre boards from wood and non-wood fibres (agro-fibres) using wood resin as the binder that can reduce formaldehyde emission and can compete with the performance and cost of existing fibreboards. This research will:

  • Characterize the wood resin;
  • Optimize cross-linking reaction of resin;
  • Evaluate the adhesion behaviour of the resin with wood and agro-fibres;
  • Optimize the MDF manufacturing process;
  • Manufacture MDF by replacing wood fibres partially with agro-fibres;
  • Evaluate the mechanical properties and dimensional stability of the boards.

Start date: 2003-04-09 End date: 2004-03-09
