Abstract

Effects of nano-wollastonite (NW) on physical and mechanical properties of medium density fiberboard (MDF) were studied. NW was applied at 5, 10, 15, and 20 g/kg dry weight basis of wood fibers; the results were then compared with control specimens. Two application methods of NW were used: surface and internal applications. Density was kept constant at 0,67 g/cm3 for all treatments and tests were carried out in accordance with ASTM D-1037. Addition of NW contributed in improving the physical and mechanical properties of the panels, both when applied internally or as surface treatment.
It was concluded that NW contents of 10% and 15% were the optimal levels for industrial purposes for internal and surface applications, respectively.
