Paper Title:
Feasibility of Manufacturing a Medium Density Fibreboard Made of 4-Year Old Rubber Tree RRIM 2020 Clone
  Abstract

This research was conducted to study the feasibility of producing medium density fibreboard (MDF) from 4-year old rubberwood clone RRIM 2020. The 4-year old rubberwood is obtained from different planting densities, which is 500, 1000, 1500 and 2000 trees/ha and were processed to produce MDF. The MDF is analyzed in term of its mechanical properties (static bending and densities to comply with JIS A 5905-2006 Standard (Type 30, MOR > 30.0 MPa and MOE > 2500 MPa and Type 25, MOR > 25.0 - 30.0 MPa and MOE > 2000 - 2500 MPa). MDF made from 25 year trees clone, PB260 which come from the same clone was used as a control. The results showed that the PB260 and the 4-year old rubberwood clone with planting densities of 500 trees/ha satisfied the requirement of Type 30, and the remaining passed at Type 25. It shows that it is feasible to produce an MDF using the 4-year old rubberwood clone.
