Properties of plywood of Melia composita at three different pressures with five nano-filler loadings
Author(s): N Ismita, Sanjay Kumar and Manish Ranjan
Abstract: In the proposed study the effect of pressure and nano clay loading on the properties of plywood were investigated. Samples for control and nano clay loadings (1%, 2%, 3%, 4%, 5%) were tested for glue shear strength, modulus of rupture (MOR), modulus of elasticity (MOE) and Tensile strength test (along and perpendicular to grain). The highest values for GSSD (158 Kg) and GSSW (115 kg) were observed for boards with 1% Nano clay loading and 17.5 Kg/cm2specific pressures. Similar results have been observed with tensile strength. Though increase in loading levels of Nano clay has shown detrimental effects of the properties of plywood.
