Abstract

The objective of this work was to evaluate the performance of particleboards manufactured from Date Palm (Phoenix Dactyliferia) branches. Properties evaluated were bending strength (BS), internal bond (IB) and swelling in thickness (ST). Results showed that particleboards produced from Date Palm branches had the requirements of IB, BS and ST.
