Effect of Cement: Wood Particle Ratio on Physical and Mechanical Properties of Cement Bonded Particle Board Using Lantana camara
The experiment was carried out to study the suitability of Lantana camara particles for making cement bonded particle boards. Portland cement was used as a sizing agent. The amount of Lantana particles was taken on air-dry basis. Different proportion of Cement/Lantana particle ratios 2.0:1.0, 2.5:1.0, and 3.0:1.0 were used. 2% of Sodium silicate (Na2SiO3 ) and 2% Aluminum sulfate (Al2(So4)3)were used to prevent hydration and increase the rate of cement setting. 28Kg/cm2 pressure were used for preparation of 10mm thick board. It was observed that physical properties of the board decreases with increase in cement: lantana particle ratio and the mechanical properties of the board increases with increase in cement: lantana particle ratio.
