Abstract

In this study, three layers particleboards are produced from a mixture of poppy husk (Papaver somniferum Linnaeus) and black pine wood (Pinus nigra var. Pallasiana) at certain ratios utilizing urea formaldehyde (UF) adhesive and hardener. Five types of 18 mm thick panels with an average density of 0.68 g.cm-3 are manufactured with different raw material ratios (0, 25, 50, 75, and 100%). All panels are tested for physical properties density, moisture content and mechanical properties resistance to axial withdrawal of screws and surface soundness of particleboards. The results have shown that technological properties of the manufactured particleboards, which are manufactured by using 50% and the less poppy husk particleboards, fulfills the standard of that has been determined in the TS EN 312. Depending on that fact manufactured particleboards can be use furniture, interior design and construction industry. Finding this type of a new application area for poppy husk might have the recycling opportunity of Alkaloid factory waste which has no economical value.
