Fabrication of Press-molded Products Using Bamboo Powder

Shinji Ochi

Abstract


This paper describes the mechanical properties of press-molded products using bamboo powder. Bamboo powder can be hot press molded much like plastics. In the present study, tensile and flexural strength as well as the hardness of the molded products using bamboo powder were examined. The tensile and flexural strengths of the bamboo powder products increased with increasing molding temperature, up to 240 . The materials possessed tensile and flexural strengths of 18 and 33 MPa, respectively. These strengths indicated nearly identical that of polyethylene and polypropylene.
