Development of particleboard from waste styrofoam and sawdust
Nigerian Journal of Technological Development
The use of Plastic Based Resin (PBR) synthesised from waste Styrofoam as binder in the production of particleboard was the focus of this investigation. This study explored the properties of particleboard produced from sawdust wastes and PBR resin synthesized from waste Styrofoam. Three particleboard panels namely C1, C2 and C3 were prepared with 20%, 30%, and 40%, (v/v), respectively. PBR was synthesised via solvolysis of waste Styrofoam in a chosen solvent, and properly mixed with sawdust bydoi:10.4314/njtd.v14i1.3 fatcat:gasxislfgnco7o2c4x4xb4fquy
