Abstract

In this study Bamboo (Dendrocalamusstrictus) particles were taken for making cement bonded particle boards. Portland cement was used as a sizing agent. The amount of bamboo particles was taken on air-dry basis. Different proportion of cement/bamboo particle ratios 2.0:1.0, 2.5:1.0, and 3.0:1.0 were used for study of physical and mechanical properties of cement bonded particle board. 2% of sodium silicate and 2% aluminum sulfatewere used forpreventinghydration and increasing the rate of cement setting. 28kg/cm2 pressure were used for preparation of 10mm thick board. The results showed that physical properties of the board decreases with increase in cement: bamboo particle ratios and the mechanical properties of the board increases with increase in cement: bamboo particle ratios.
