Özet

In this study, the effects of density profile and hot press diagram on the technological properties of particleboard were analyzed. Physical and mechanical properties of particleboards were evaluated. Density profile was found a main parameter affecting quality properties of particleboard. While increasing entrance pressure improved the modulus of rupture and elasticity, and thickness swelling of the panels, increasing exit pressure was found to be effective on the bonding strength and thickness swelling. Exit pressure did not statistically affect the bending properties. Decreasing feeding speed of the hot press significantly improved all of the properties. While high surface density improved the modulus of rupture and elasticity, and thickness swelling, high core density caused better internal bond strength and thickness swelling. Entrance pressure was found to be effective on the surface density of particleboard. Exit pressure did not statistically affect the surface density, however, increased the core density.
