Current technology is moving toward eco-friendly due to the environmental and health hazards.This paper focused on the development of water resistant particleboards from rice husk.Rice husk is a material used for the substitutes for wood and wood-based particleboard.The experimental work investigates the production of particleboards using the different compositions of rice husk,corn starch and wood glue (RH/CS/WG),(%) are used to know the comparison of results.The compositions are measured in percentage by weight,% which are 50/50/0 (Board A),50/30/20 (Board B),50/20/30 (Board C) and 50/10/40 (Board D).The mixture mixed manually and poured into a mould with a dimension of 100 mm × 100 mm × 30 mm. The particleboard was compacted using the hydraulic press with 125 ◦C,30 minutes pressing and 3 ton.The water absorption,thickness and strength tests of all four particleboards have been carried out to determine the physical and mechanical properties.From the study,it can conclude that all particleboards show the percentage of water absorption increases with increasing the time of immersion and also good strength.The Particleboard D (50RH,10CS, 40WG) is chosen as the best particleboard compared to others.The test results indicate that the particleboards can be used for indoor application.Thus,it shows the rice husk,corn starch and wood glue combination gives as an alternative way to replace the wood.
